China's zero covid policy isn't working. Despite the heavy lockdowns the numbers keep rising and causing civilian deaths. In addition, due to the heavy lockdowns, there have been reports of starvation, mass protests, and home arrests.
From the article,
There were 23,370 new local infections reported in Shanghai on Friday, a sharp increase from the previous day’s total of 7,629 new cases. Of the 12 deaths reported on Friday the patients were, on average, around 88 years old and suffered from underlying conditions. Those deaths make the total death toll due to recent infections equal 48 people, prompting officials to double down on quarantines.
