Leader Xi states China willing to sacrifice economics to protect its people health

(MENAFN) Leader Xi Jinping stated on Wednesday that China is prepared to handle momentary financial impacts instead of hurt its citizens.

Throughout a visit to Wuhan, the central Chinese city where the initial infections of COVID-19 happened back in December three years ago, Xi assured the necessity for Beijing to last with its strict “zero-COVID” policy.

In line with state-run daily Global Times Xi stated that “Given China’s large population, if it pursues herd immunity and adopts a ‘lying down’ approach, the consequences would be unimaginable. The dynamic ‘zero-COVID’ is the most economical and effective choice for the country.”

Beijing has occasionally depended on firm curbs and lockdowns to stem the extent of the virus, leading to a stoppage in commercial actions and denting the nation’s probabilities of reaching yearly expansion aims.

Xi, however, highlighted that the administration would “rather temporarily affect economic development than harm the lives and health of its people.”

He also stressed that “China has the ability and the strength to implement a dynamic zero-COVID policy until reaching final victory.”
