      Shanghai has been under strict lockdown for a while, but it doesn’t seem to be working.

      990 thousand and counting. So much for Schadenfreude.

        I understand that term to refer to taking satisfaction from the troubles of others.

      Covid is a respiratory virus, and the variant in China is super-contagious. It is simply impossible to stop the spread by any lockdown measures in a city the size of Shanghai, and it’s showing, isn’t it?

      39 deaths out of 20,000 cases. That’s a 0.19% death rate, and we have no idea how many of those people were, say, over 80. I bet it was most of them, because they are the most vulnerable and less than half of elderly Chinese citizens were vaccinated, why I don’t know.
