Readers: Western media in no position to lecture China on virus control

chinadaily.com.cn | Updated: 2022-04-15 10:33

Editor's note: As Shanghai is experiencing a dramatic rise in cases fueled by the omicron variant, some Western media criticized the city for its lockdown measures and questioned the efficacy and sustainability of China's "dynamic zero" policy. For example, Wall Street Journal published an article with a big, bold headline that read: "China Turns Covid Victory into Defeat". How do readers react to the Western media's criticism? Why does China adopt the "dynamic zero" policy? Do people support the policy? Readers share their opinions.


The US media should give some thought to its own people. The US has paid a dear price and lost nearly a million lives. In comparison, China has had less than 5,000 deaths from COVID. As a country with four times the population, high density in cities and a less developed healthcare system, China has done a fantastic job. The viruses target vulnerable people and with the strict anti-epidemic measures, China's healthcare system has not been overwhelmed and millions of lives have been saved.
