Chinese Media Mum on Details About COVID-19 Outbreak at International Airport

An eastern China metropolis reported a resurgence of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, also known as COVID-19, at a city airport, according to Chinese state media outlets. While media provided scant details, local residents said all the diagnosed cases were made up of airport staff.

Authorities in Nanjing city, capital of eastern China’s Jiangsu province, reported 22 domestic CCP-virus infections as of 1:00 p.m. on July 22. The affected airport is Nanjing Lukou International.

The outbreak triggered citywide nucleic-acid testing, despite Nanjing having achieved a high vaccination rate. Local authorities have provided residents with no further details.

Groups such as Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting have accused the CCP of using a “deception protocol” in covering up outbreaks.

Outbreak Specifics Unavailable

A Nanjing resident surnamed Zhong spoke to the Chinese Epoch Times about the local situation on July 22. He said there are “No specifics. [In fact] Some air stewardesses are infected. Currently, there are seven or eight of them who are asymptomatic,” Zhong revealed.

Zhong added all flights had been canceled. All passengers who were in the airport at that time had to return to where they came and enter quarantine.

Zhong’s concern became deeper as CCP virus cases spiked due to more transmissible new variants.

Another resident, surnamed Zhao, confirmed the flight cancellations and delays when speaking to the Chinese Epoch Times.

A staffer at the local ATOUR Hotel said on July 21 that the Lukou airport is now designated as a high-risk area. Entering the area is impossible without 48-hour proof of a nucleic-acid test and a flight ticket.

“Rooms cannot be booked until after 14 days. Our hotel now only accommodates armed airport police, agents on special missions, and healthcare workers,” the hotel employee said.

The only instructions he and the rest of the staff were given was “wait for further notice.”

Chinese Vaccines Efficacy

The resurgence of CCP virus cases fueled suspicion about the efficacy of Chinese-made vaccines. Jabs were administered in Nanjing on a large scale before the end of June, including secondary inoculations.

Chinese authorities have boasted about the quality of their domestic vaccines and exported them to southeast Asian and African countries.

However, a medical expert, Yang Yi, revealed in a July 22 interview with a Chinese media outlet that all recently diagnosed patients in Nanjing had received Chinese-made shots, except for minors under 18. Yang serves as the head of the Department of Critical Care Medicine at the local Zhongda Hospital, an affiliation of the nationally high-ranked Southeast University.

Recently, Southeast Asian countries that had widely administered Chinese shots have been turning to Western countries to diversify their vaccine portfolios. Countries include Indonesia and Thailand, where confirmed infections have skyrocketed, as well as Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam.
