China

In lockdown

As the first ‘infected’ nation, and after many months of severe social distancing measures, China has begun the process of exiting its lockdown.

While there is a sense that things are beginning to ‘go back to normal’, China is now having to deal with the mass social upheaval as a consequence of the virus. Despite efforts from the government to focus on collective mourning and the revival of the Chinese economy, there has been sustained critique of the state and its handling of the COVID-19 outbreak.
