According to experts, 60% of China could be infected within three months.
According to the sources, one of Beijing’s designated crematoria for Covid-19 patients has been flooded with dead bodies in recent days.
Following the relaxation of Covid-19 restrictions, China has seen a massive increase in coronavirus cases. According to Eric Feigl-Ding, an epidemiologist and health economist, hospitals in China are completely overcrowded.
Epidemiologist estimate that more than 60 percent of China and 10 percent of the Earth’s population will be infected in the next 90 days, with millions of deaths.
One of Beijing’s designated cemeteries for Covid-19 patients has been overflowing with bodies in recent days as the virus spreads through the Chinese capital, according to the sources, providing an early indication of the human cost of the country’s sudden easing of pandemic restrictions.
The Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) goal, according to Feigl-Ding, is “Allow whoever needs to be infected to be infected, and allow whoever needs to die to die. Early infections, early deaths, early peaks, and early production resumption.”
China has reported no Covid deaths in Beijing since the authorities announced four deaths between November 19 and 23. The State Council’s information office did not immediately respond to a request for comment sent late Friday.
According to people who work at the Beijing Dongjiao Crematory on the eastern outskirts of the Chinese capital, there has been an increase in requests for cremation and other funerary services, according to the sources.
“Since the Covid reopening, we’ve been overloaded with work,” said a woman who answered the phone at the crematorium on Friday, adding, “Right now, it’s 24 hours a day. We are unable to keep up.”
According to the woman, Dongjiao Crematory, which is run by the city of Beijing and has been designated by the National Health Commission to handle Covid-positive cases, was receiving so many bodies that it was conducting cremations in the early morning and late at night. “There is no other way,” she explained.
She estimates that about 200 bodies arrive at the crematorium each day, compared to 30 or 40 on a typical day. She said the increased workload has taxed the crematorium staff, many of whom have been suffering from the rapidly spreading virus in recent days.
Men who work at the compound, which includes a funeral hall and a cluster of small shops selling burial cloths, flowers, caskets, urns and other funeral goods, said the number of corpses had risen sharply in recent days, but none had been offered. An estimate of the size of the increase, reported.
Doubling time in China may no longer be days. According to some experts, doubling time now could take “hours” – take that in. R is difficult to calculate if the doubling time is less than one day because PCR testing is difficult at that speed. The point is that China and the rest of the world are in serious trouble, according to Feigl-Ding.
Furthermore, deaths in mainland China are vastly underreported. According to a survey of hospitals, funeral parlours, and related funeral industry chains in Beijing, there has been a recent surge in funeral services due to a sharp increase in deaths.
According to the epidemiologist, cremations in Beijing will not stop. Mortuaries are overcrowded. Refrigerated containers are required. Funerals are held around the clock. Currently 2000 dead bodies are being cremated. Does this sound familiar? It’s spring 2020 again—but this time for China, which is mimicking a more Western-style mass infection approach.
People flocked to the pharmaceutical factory to buy ibuprofen, which was sold outright elsewhere.
According to one, all the corpses of the day are usually cremated by noon. But recently the number of dead bodies has increased and cremation is taking place even after nightfall.
In a series of abrupt moves this month, China dismantled much of the lockdown, testing and quarantine regimes that underpinned its ‘Zero Covid’ approach for the past three years to suppress even small outbreaks of the virus.
The scale of China’s coronavirus outbreak has been difficult to quantify due to the relaxation of testing requirements. Daily national case counts have steadily declined as fewer people test themselves at public facilities, and health officials stopped releasing daily tallys of asymptomatic cases earlier this week for the first time since the pandemic began.
The Beijing Emergency Medical Centre urged only critically ill patients to call for ambulances earlier this month, saying that emergency requests had increased to 30,000 per day from an average of about 5,000, straining the capacity of paramedics to respond, according to the sources.
Corpses diagnosed as Covid-positive or suspected of being Covid-positive must be cremated immediately in specially designated furnaces, with no body dressing or memorial services, according to National Health Commission regulations.
However, due to limited exposure, low vaccination rates, and inadequate investment in emergency care, many of China’s 1.4 billion people remain vulnerable to the virus.
