As news from China is controlled regulated outside world does not get much news about China happenings. Worldwide popular social media platforms like FB, Twitter etc are not allowed in China.
So no one can say authoritatively about what is the reality inside China. What we get is what the Chinese govt allows after filtering, scrutiny and maybe what it wanted and decided .
The only thing we are now sure is that the Covid 19 originated from China. How, when and how much people were affected, what was the casualty- all these are as fed by the official Chines news agencies. All other things are left to guess, hushed gossip and rumour.
But from whatever we are given t understand also, China has not completely covered its adult population by vaccination. Vaccination for children is yet to be taken up for trials and emergency permission.
But what is popularly fed in whatsapp etc in our midst is that Chinese used the traditional preventive and managing methods like steam inhalation, native medicines etc.
Recently I heard a voice clip in whatsapp purportedly from a person who was working in China for years and who knows about living inChinese villages also. It said that generally alo China has less number of modern hospitals in comparison to our country. Chinese ensure exercise and activity for their citizen especially the senior citizen. Hence the elderly there are healthier than counterparts in other nations. Chinese use the traditional native remedies and medicines more, rather than the modern medicine. So in the case of Covid also they used such preventive and managing systems and knowledge.
However in our country the modern medical doctors and their associations vehemently opposed use of any other systems of treatment and medicine (like Ayurveda, Siddha and Homeopathy). In our country also there are many who believe that using preventive and management methods of the traditional systems could have reduced the number of cases and number of serious cases too.
However some news appears that China is also fearing another bout of infection there also. Possibly tis may be to put blame on other countries and hide their reality situation.
In the initial days we were seeing clips of people falling on wayside in China. Only after it spread to Europe and cause havoc there did the world focus there and forgot or ignored China. That was a blessing in disguise for China.
If we have to believe that China controlled the Covid so soon when the whole world is still under its cruel impact, we have to question China why it is keeping the remedy or prevention as a secret instead of making it freely available to the world on humanity basis. At least why they are not openly sharing the data and study knowledge on Covid? It is that doubt that tempts us to doubt that China created the virus and hence they were prepared with prevention and remedy. So, at present, I am tempted to believe that China has also not fully controlled Covid. At the maximum, they are also managing because they have better technology and committed people which make managing better.
