Corona Cases in China: Corona is wreaking havoc in China. Even the beds are not vacant to admit patients in the hospitals. At the same time, the process of patients reaching the hospital is also going on. The result is that patients are lying in the corridors of the hospital. Patients are taking oxygen sitting on stretchers or wheelchairs in the corridors. Chuiyanglu Hospital, located in the eastern part of the city, was full of new patients on Thursday. By midday all the beds in the hospital were full but the process of reaching here by ambulance continued. The nurses and doctors of the hospital immediately proceeded to attend to the patients who were in dire need of medical assistance.

The number of patients increased after the removal of 'Zero Kovid Policy'

This 'flood' of patients in Chinese hospitals has actually come after the removal of restrictions implemented under its 'Zero Kovid Policy' which has been going on for almost three years. These restrictions included a lockdown, travel restrictions and school closures. They had a lot of pressure on the economy and in protest against this, people had come out on the streets to protest. The European Union also "encouraged" its member states on Wednesday to implement COVID-19 tests for travelers arriving from China. Over the past week, EU countries have imposed a range of restrictions on travelers from China that violate prior commitments.

European Union's decision angered China

Italy was the first country in the European Union to mandate coronavirus tests for airline passengers arriving from China. France and Spain, however, followed their own measures. After this, the US implemented a rule that all travelers from China must show a negative report of the last 48 hours before departure. China warned that it would 'retaliate' if such policies were implemented in all countries of the union. World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Wednesday that the agency is "concerned about the current threat to lives in China" amid the explosive spread of the novel coronavirus across China and the lack of government data.
