On Sept. 10, the day of the traditional Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, the Chinese communist regime reported new COVID-19 cases and plunged more cities and districts into lockdown. Many Chinese are now starving from the disruptions in food supply caused by the regime’s constant shutdown of cities and transportation.
Authorities in Beijing announced nine new COVID-19 infections in Chaoyang District, all of whom were students with the Communication University of China; another 584 people in the university have now also been identified as close contacts. The university, the nearby Beijing International Studies University, and surrounding neighborhoods have since been locked down, requiring all residents in the areas to take PCR tests.
On the same day in the northwest Gansu Province, local authorities put a whole district in Qingyang city under a three-day lockdown because of the discovery of new COVID-19 cases. In Shandong Province in east China, authorities have restricted entry and exits in five areas in Qingdao city, after declaring them as high-risk zones.
Meanwhile, nearly 300 million Chinese people continue to live under the various strict lockdowns across China because of the regime’s “zero-COVID” policy.
Food Donations Sold Off
In China’s Xinjiang, an Uyghur Muslim majority region, Ili Prefecture has been under lockdown since the end of July when COVID-19 cases were reported. Some local residents have been out of food for many days. During the Mid-Autumn Festival, they have posted on social media for help.
