The detection of several cases in the Jia hospital area, in Henan province, leads to a new total confinement

In the long process that will bring China back to normal after having defeated the coronavirus In the first battle, the authorities do not want to make any mistakes. Therefore, after detecting various infections related to a hospital in the area, on Tuesday night, they decided to impose a new total quarantine in Jia county. Located in the central province of Henan, adjacent to the epicentre of the pandemic, Hubei, it has some 600,000 inhabitants that now they cannot leave their houses. As reported by local authorities, only essential services and businesses remain operational, and those who are employed in them must obtain a special permit to be able to go outside.

This is the latest sign of China’s fear of a SARS-CoV-2 outbreak and of the drastic measures it is determined to take to prevent it. Not surprisingly, although he already appears in public without a mask, the president himself, Xi Jinping has repeatedly called not to let his guard down. The slogan is to resume activity as soon as possible to avoid further damage to the economy, yes. Still, the other world power is carrying out a gradual reactivation. Since last February 10, most companies have resumed their work. Still, a large part has not yet managed to reinstate the entire workforce due to movement restrictions and the imposition of individual quarantines on those who make interprovincial trips.

At the same time, Beijing is also fighting an international image battle. On the one hand, it tries to improve your reputation by sending medical supplies – most of them sold – to the countries most in need. On the other, it is forced to counteract criticism for the quality of such material, often not by Western standards, and for the responsibility that some attribute to the regime in the spread of the coronavirus. According to a confidential White House report mentioned by officials to the Bloomberg agency, the United States accuses China of having to hide the real danger posed by the pathogen reducing the numbers of affected and deceased, something that the Chinese leaders deny.

Thus, the war against coronavirus is also becoming combat that pits the two leading world powers to gain worldwide influence. Donald Trump often points out that SARS-CoV-2 is a “Chinese virus,” and diplomats like China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Lijian Zhao counter-attack, fueling conspiracy theories that point to the US military as the source of the coronavirus. Scientists, however, point out that it is still too early to reach conclusions about when and where it originated.
