China City Goes on Lockdown Amid New Outbreak

China City Goes on Lockdown Amid New Outbreak

(HorizonPost.com) – Once again, the People’s Republic of China has ordered a lockdown of one of their cities due to the COVID-19 breakout, this time in the Yunnan Province city of Ruili, located on the border with Myanmar (Burma), for at least one week. While China disclosed 9 cases of people exhibiting symptoms on March 30, 2021, ABC News reported on April 1 that number was up to 12, and an additional 23 tested positive but were asymptomatic.

In the United States, there are pockets of increasing infections, such as in Michigan, where authorities announced more than 7000 new cases in a single day on March 31, the largest new caseload seen there in several months. During an interview on WXYZ Fox 17, Dr. Anthony Fauci said he believes that it may have been a case of “pulling back prematurely” because of public pressure upon state officials to get things up and running again.

On the world stage, France has imposed its third national lockdown, and Japan has seen increases as the already-delayed 2020 Olympics loom. Unfortunately, only one thing is certain: This isn’t over yet.
