Skip to comments.China says latest COVID-19 outbreak caused by imported cases
Posted on 01/16/2021 6:45:36 PM PST by dynachrome
China’s recent COVID-19 outbreaks in the northeast have come from travelers entering the country or contaminated frozen food imports, the National Health Commission (NHC) said on Saturday.
“Since Dec. 2020, epidemic clusters have occurred in Beijing, Sichuan, Liaoning, Hebei and Heilongjiang,” a statement posted on the NHC’s website said citing the briefing by Ma.
“They mainly have the following characteristics. Firstly, they are all imported from abroad, caused by travelers from overseas, or contaminated cold-chain imported items.”
Total case numbers remain well below what China saw at the height of the outbreak in early 2020, but concerns about a new wave are growing with the Lunar New Year a month away.

RE: China says latest COVID-19 outbreak caused by imported cases
Therefore, what follows? To prevent any more cases, is China going to shut herself off from the rest of the world indefinitely?
“About 28 million people have been put under lockdown so far as a result and Ma said the latest outbreak had quickly spread widely due to activities such as wedding banquets or large group gatherings, and that it was difficult to control as community transmission had already occurred when cases were discovered.”
Of course, to them 28 million is small number.
Visiting Democrat’s seeking donations?
If the PRC says anything, I always assume there’s an approximately 98% chance it’s B.S., but anyone know what they’re talking about with respect to frozen food?! First I’ve heard of that being a vector of transmission.
Covid tainted ice cream in China:
Humper biden was spreading disease while there, probably.
Good grief, they lie like ABC/CBS/NBC/FOX/NPR, and EVERY big city newspaper.
No wonder Slow Joe and the Ho love them so much.
Pure propaganda, as only the Chicoms can do. What is truly disconcerting is that rabid leftists will believe it, as well as other brain dead clowns.
American Samoa took that approach.
Residents that were visiting in the US werent even allowed back
Some theorize that lack of Covid is because of the MMR II mass vax program due to the outbreak of measles
But it just may be because they shut themselves off.
Chinese ice-cream spreading covid in USA.
Thanks. I wonder if this is ChiCom propaganda to help local dairy producers, i.e., “Don’t eat that imported crap. It’s tainted with coronavirus. Better to stick with Chinese stuff!” etc
All CCP propaganda to keep the world wide China Virus pandemic status going.
Frozen bat is off the menu!
There are overseas Chinese that live in New York or London that flew back to China hoping to avoid Covid in NYC. They took the new variant when. Then when the new variant appears in the PRC the fly back to Vancouver, NYC, London or LA to avoid the one in China and spear it to the people in the new city.
Ben and Jerry's new flavor...honoring their hero Nancy Pelosi?
plenty of FakeNewsMSM are giving legitimacy to the ***”Italy” story - including the ABC Australia taxpayer-funded pro-China mob:
17 Jan: Daily Mail: China ‘promoting flimsy theories that Covid-19 originated outside the country’ as WHO experts begin their investigation in Wuhan
•WHO experts begin their investigation in Wuhan into the pandemic’s source
•State-run media leapt on report that a woman from Milan with symptoms in 2019
•Beijing leaders have made repeated attempts to divert blame for the pandemic
By Mail on Sunday Reporter
The country’s state-run media last week leapt on a report that a woman with symptoms of the virus has been traced to Milan in November 2019 as proof that the pandemic started abroad...
***The news from Italy made headlines in many Chinese newspapers, drawing online comments such as ‘the world owes China an apology.’...
Last November, Chinese scientists argued the virus may have originated in India in the summer of 2019 when a heatwave forced animals and humans to share the same water sources.
A month later, a state-run newspaper claimed the virus might have been introduced to China in frozen meat imported from Australia, following earlier claims that people may have been infected by imported fish...
16 Jan: Tennis X: It’s Getting Messy In Melbourne, 47 Players Quarantined With No Training Ahead Of Australian Open
by Sean Randall
The tournament chartered several flights to ferry players to Australia, but in the last 24 hours two of those planes had passengers test positive upon arrival.
On a flight from LAX, two aboard tested positive including a coach.
On a flight from Abu Dhabi, one passenger tested positive — Bianca Andreescu’s coach, Sylvain Bruneau.
The Australian Open has confirmed the cases on both flights. And the consequences are not pretty.
A total of 47 players (23 from LAX, 24 from Abu Dhabi) must now fully quarantine without leaving their hotel rooms for 14 days...
Where it gets sticky is players signed up to play the event because the tournament told them that if they tested negative they would be allowed five hours per day to train. Now, for 47 players that has been taken away through virtually no fault of their own.
Some of them include Victoria Azarenka, Angelique Kerber, Kei Nishikori, Heather Watson, Yulia Putinseva, Sloane Stephens, Bianca Andreescu, Vasek Pospisil and Pablo Cuevas.
Imagine you undertake this 20-hour or so journey, land in Australia, test negative, prepare to get two weeks of training in only to get told you will have to isolate instead and cannot leave the hotel.
No shock, some players were not happy...READ ON
following is prior to most of the 47 being told they had to quarantine:
15 Jan: Sydney Morning Herald: ‘Confusing and dangerous’: Readers respond to arrival of tennis players for the Australian Open
The arrival of thousands of highly paid tennis players and their entourages into Adelaide and Melbourne for the belated Australian Open is either a logistical triumph (if you’re the Victorian government and Tennis Australia), a disaster waiting to happen (if you are many ordinary Australians), and rank hypocrisy if you’re a Victorian stuck interstate or overseas...
Wendy: I’m sick of elite sports people always being given every free pass in this country. What about the thousands of people who are citizens and Victorian residents who can’t even get back into their own country or state? But you know, sport...
