Shanghai Lockdown Makes A Mockery Of China's COVID Vaccines

The natives are getting restless in Shanghai.

And who could blame them? With China's vaccination rate surely a lockdown is superfluous?

Despite the spike in infections, China has recorded no new COVID-19 deaths since March 20th, when two were added for a total 4,638. China’s vaccination rate is above 87% — although significantly lower among seniors — and omicron is known to be more infectious while the illness it brings on is typically more mild than with the earlier delta variant.

No deaths, mild symptoms, high vaccination rate…and yet lockdown.

Omicron is laughing at China's vaccines.
