The first atrocities on civilians
Now two hospitals in the Chinese city of Xi’an, which have been facing severe lockouts for three weeks, have also been locked. According to a foreign news agency, one of them was a hospital which refused to treat an eight-month-pregnant woman and later had an abortion. The historic Chinese city has been battling an outbreak of the corona virus since last December, and more than 13 million people have been forced off due to the Xi Jinping government’s “zero-covid” strategy. Is Their homes … I don’t know how many Kovid infected people are being dumped in iron cans and the video is also going viral on social media.
The blame fell on two hospitals
In fact, last week, a picture and video of the victim sitting on a blood-soaked stool outside Goxin Hospital went viral, sparking outrage against the city’s strict covid rules. The hospital refused to treat the woman simply because it had received a negative report of Covid-19 shortly before the 48-hour rule. In another incident, a Shiite resident alleged that his father had died last week because heart disease could not be treated at any other hospital due to “strict epidemic rules”.
Accused of negligence in duty
According to officials, the two hospitals have been given a three-month period for improvement after warning and operations will be suspended and they will be allowed to reopen only after getting the necessary clearances. The city’s health commission said in a statement on Thursday that the two hospitals had “failed in their duty to save lives and protect victims.” According to health officials, “this has led to delays in the rescue, screening and treatment of critically ill patients, which has had a detrimental effect on public attention and society.”
Xi’an has been facing severe lockouts since December
Not only that, the general manager of Goxin Hospital has been asked to suspend and several employees and other hospitals have been ordered to dismiss its chairman, suspend the deputy chief and remove the head nurse of the OPD department. It is noteworthy that the severity of the lockout in Xi’an has increased to such an extent that people have started criticizing the local government. Many residents are complaining about lack of food as well as daily necessities as they are not allowed to leave their homes. Meanwhile, the number of cases of covid in Xi’an has dropped significantly in recent days, with only six cases reported on Thursday. Since December 9, there have been more than 2,000 cases of local covid infection in the city. However, Beijing has completely ignored these public concerns to make the Winter Olympics a success.
