Chinese President Xi Jinping and other top politicians have received the country’s corona vaccine, according to Beijing. According to a BBC report, the news comes as part of an ongoing campaign in China to encourage people to take up corona vaccinations, particularly booster doses.
Zeng Yijin, assistant head of China’s National Health Commission, said that the leaders’ confidence in the Chinese-made corona vaccine has been proven.
Information about the health of these leaders, including Xi Jinping, is not usually disclosed. Zheng Yijin said that the country’s leaders have all taken the home-made corona vaccine.
Chinese officials continue to try to increase vaccination rates for all. But safely again the vaccination rate for all actives is relatively low. China is still following the ‘zero covid’ strategy. Among them, mass testing of everyone, strict social distancing restrictions and lockdown at the local level are also being implemented.
The zero covid policy has had a negative impact on China’s public life and economy. But President Xi has repeatedly said there is no alternative to a zero-covid policy.
According to the latest calculations of the John Hopkins University in the United States, 21 lakh 67 thousand 619 people have been diagnosed with corona in China. 14 thousand 647 people died.
According to a BBC report, 90 percent of people in the world’s most populous country have received two doses of the corona vaccine, according to the Chinese government’s latest.
