Protest against COVID restrictions in China news. Last Minute WORLD headlines and events


The ongoing lockdown following an increase in coronavirus infections in China in recent days has sparked protests. In the western province of Xinjiang, people took to the streets to protest and chanted “end of the blockade”.

Street demonstrations rare in the country are said to be concentrated in Urumqi, the capital of Xinjiang province.

In Urumqi, home to about 4 million people, the closures due to the COVID-19 epidemic continue for almost a hundred days. In total, 200 cases have been recorded in the city over the past day.

During protests against the blockade in Urumqi, a fire broke out in a high-rise building. Authorities said 10 people died in the fire.

It is alleged that people who were in the building could not get out as quickly as possible due to the closure, in connection with which there were victims.
Authorities, on the other hand, denied claims that the building was locked down due to closure and that insiders could not escape, and announced that they would launch an investigation into the incident.

Xinjiang Province is a region known to the public, especially for the Chinese administration’s discriminatory and violent actions against Uyghur Turks in the region.

In China, the world’s largest economy, management continues to shut down due to COVID-19 zero policy. This situation is criticized in many parts of the country.

Last week, the record for the number of cases in one day since the beginning of the epidemic was broken – 34,909 cases in one day last week. Although this number is small, it is forcing China, which has a zero-case policy, to tighten some measures.

In Shanghai, one of the largest cities in the country, tightened measures. In particular, it is stated that applications related to the test for COVID-19 have been tightened. In connection with the measures taken, entrances to some parks and recreation areas were also prohibited.
