China's Tough Anti-Covid-19 Measures "will stand the test of time"

Chinese President Xi Jinping defended that the tough anti-epidemic measures imposed in Shanghai “will stand the test of time” and promised to fight any attempt to “distort, question and challenge” the “zero covid” policy.

Xi on Thursday presided over a meeting of the seven-member Politburo Standing Committee, the summit of power in China.

The Chinese leader said Communist Party officials and cadres must stand firm and not waver in fighting the disease, according to state media.

China will prevail in the fight against Covid-19 in Shanghai, just as it did in Wuhan, Xi Jinping assured, state broadcaster CCTV reported.

Wuhan, a city located in central China, diagnosed the first cases of the new coronavirus at the end of 2019. The city was under de facto quarantine for almost two months.

Shanghai’s 25 million people have been confined for more than a month, in the face of the country’s most serious outbreak since then.
