China is experiencing the worst Covid outbreak in the world, with a daily infection rate of more than 30 million and an estimated 5,000 deaths per day. According to estimates from the Chinese health ministry, the outbreak is the largest in the world so far. There are reports that China has manipulated its Covid death figures to keep them low compared to other countries.
China made changes to its testing patterns, including shutting down PCR testing booths and using rapid antigen tests, which are not required to be reported if they are positive. The government has also stopped publishing the daily number of asymptomatic cases, making it difficult to accurately assess the infection rate. Data from MetroDataTech consultancy suggests that the current wave of infections in China will peak between mid-December and late January in most cities. Officials have reported that severe and critical Covid cases are increasing in Beijing, even as the overall infection rate declines. The outbreak is also spreading to rural areas where medical resources may be limited.
China allows foreign Vaccines for First Time in the Country
The German government is sending a batch of BioNTech vaccines to China for German expatriates living in the country. China agreed to allow the vaccines to be given to German citizens during a visit by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz last month. The German government is also pushing for non-German foreigners living in China to have access to the vaccine if they want it. Chinese citizens in Europe can now be vaccinated with China’s Sinovac vaccine, which has been approved for use by the World Health Organization but not by Europe’s drug regulator. China is facing a surge of Covid-19 cases and is dismantling its zero-Covid lockdown and mass testing measures. Experts predict that the country could see more than a million Covid-19 deaths next year.

How to boost your Immune and keep yourself Covid 19 BF.7 Variant
Your immune system helps protect your body from getting sick. It’s made up of different parts of your body that work together to fight off infections and diseases. It’s important for your immune system to be strong enough to fight off illness, but not too strong that it causes unnecessary problems. There are many things that can affect how well your immune system works, like your age, sex, how active you are, how well you handle stress, and your lifestyle and diet. There are several things you can do to boost your immune system and help your body fight off infections and diseases:
- Eat a healthy diet that is rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. These foods are high in nutrients that support a healthy immune system.
- Exercise regularly. Physical activity helps to boost the immune system by increasing blood flow and aiding in the production of white blood cells.
- Get enough sleep. Lack of sleep can weaken the immune system and make you more susceptible to illness. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night.
- Manage stress. Chronic stress can weaken the immune system, so it’s important to find ways to manage stress effectively. This can include practicing relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing or meditation, or seeking support from friends and family.
- Wash your hands frequently. Proper hand hygiene is one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of illness.
- Avoid tobacco and excessive alcohol consumption. Both of these can weaken the immune system and increase the risk of illness.
- Consider taking immune-boosting supplements, such as vitamin C and zinc, but be sure to talk to a healthcare professional before starting any new supplement regimen.
