A major Chinese city near Beijing has placed its 14 million residents on partial lockdown after 40 children and adults tested positive for COVID-19, including at least two with the omicron variant. Remember when this scariant was first announced that it was “mild,” according to “scientists,” so what exactly is the justification to lockdown 14 million people for 40 cases of this cold?
It’s hard to say what the motivation is here other than fear and panic the masses into blind obedience to their rulers. The real issue with Tianjin being locked down is that it’s a major port in China. With the supply chain already devastated and reparation of it seems still so far in the future, this could be a problem on a global scale. The mainstream media in the United States says this is China’s first local outbreak of omicron of any size, less than a month before the Winter Olympics open in nearby Beijing.
