HERE WE GO AGAIN: China Brings Back Masking, Distancing as Pneumonia Outbreak Surges; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.28.23

According to a report from The Sun, China is reimplementing masking and social distancing after a spike in a mysterious respiratory ailment just four years on from COVID.

From The Sun:

Areas in the north of the country such as Beijing and Liaoning have been hit the hardest, with reports emerging last week that hospitals are being overwhelmed with sick children.

A common bacterial infection called mycoplasma pneumoniae has circulated since May but is now showing ground glass opacity in lung scans – an indicator of severe respiratory illness.

Also known as “white lung syndrome”, many parents are deeply worried and are having to wait at least a day just for emergency care.

But China continues to insist that flu and the usual winter bugs are to blame for the latest outbreak, rather than a new virus, and can cope with the spike in sickness.

Local authorities, however, are already being called upon to open more fever clinics and promote vaccine uptake among children and the elderly.

“Efforts should be made to increase the opening of relevant clinics and treatment areas, extend service hours and increase the supply of medicines,” said ministry spokesman Mi Feng.
