Public health: It's what Shanghai craves!
Locking up 25 million people is a very healthy and rational thing to do!
Greetings, internet friends.
Earlier this week, your humble Moscow correspondent asked if we could have a little chit-chat about what was going on in China.
So… what is going on in China? Public health. Lots of impressive public health.
Admittedly, we were a bit skeptical at first. But now we understand that putting 25 million people under house arrest—forcing many Shanghai residents to rely on government handouts in order to feed themselves—is a wise, caring, and very healthy thing to do.
Probably you are thinking: “but I thought lockdowns were depraved and anti-human?” Not when China does it. China is different.
Sanitary & very necessary “quarantine” facilities
First of all, you need to understand that the Chinese government would never treat its people like caged animals unless it had a really, really good reason. It’s now 100% obvious that Shanghai has been attacked with an extremely deadly bioweapon, forcing authorities to take extreme measures to keep everyone safe and healthy.
We know this is true because the makeshift “quarantine” centers in Shanghai are extremely sanitary and have been specially designed to stop the spread of deadly pathogens.
UnHerd recently interviewed a Ukrainian lady who was taken to one of these pristine health facilities (a giant expo center) after she received an “abnormal” COVID test result:
She shares a “stall” with a random stranger. No walls, no door. It’s a giant room with thousands of cots. Don’t worry though, she gets to go outside when it’s Testing Time.
Also: she doesn’t know when she will be allowed to leave.
There are no showers. This is how the inmates—sorry, “grateful citizens who have been lovingly shielded from the Virus”—clean themselves:
Remember: this is a high-tech and very necessary “quarantine” facility that is keeping people safe and healthy. It would be totally irresponsible to even suggest otherwise.
In fact, quarantined citizens are so grateful for being shielded from the Virus that they have started to hold impromptu parades:
There’s really no reason to complain about being forced to live in an expo center cubicle. You’re safe. You’re healthy. You get to go outside when it’s Testing Time. You receive three free meals a day. You don’t know when you will be allowed to leave, but you don’t need to know. This is true bliss. This is everyone’s wettest dream.
There is plenty of food for everyone!
There are many irresponsible news reports and videos purportedly documenting how Chinese authorities are struggling to provide food to 25 million people who aren’t allowed to go outside.
This is outrageous! There’s plenty of food for everyone:
And here are some Chinese people, beaming with thanks and gratitude, as they collect their daily food ration:
Military deployed for extra health and safety?
The PLA has reportedly arrived in Shanghai to ensure everyone stays extra healthy and extra safe.
With the help of the military, this insidious western bioweapon will finally be defeated.
On Friday, Xi Jinping defended the very healthy measures being taken in Shanghai.
“Against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic that rages across the world, we have put first the health of all participants, adhered to the policy of preventing the coronavirus from re-entering the country to cause a new epidemic, and strictly implemented the prevention and control measures,” the Chinese president said.
What comes next? More testing, of course. And then maybe certain areas of the city will be “managed” differently, depending on determined “risk levels.”
Wonderful healthy health
These are amazing and joyous times, friends. Truly we are blessed to live in an age when our governments spare no expense to keep us all so safe and so healthy.
There are so many haters and doubters who question the benevolence of our omnipotent leaders. What is wrong with these people? Trust the Plan. We are being taken care of.
