A recent report by Voices Against Autocracy said that Chinese citizens have been left to fend for themselves after the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) amid widespread protests against the government's zero-Covid policy, suddenly lifted its stringent Covid regulations.

The report also said that: "Continued inaction by the CCP and turning a blind eye to the people's suffering might again push people to the streets to get what is due to them."

Covid has been rapidly spreading in China. Informal reports show that about 40 percent of Beijing's residents are currently infected with Covid. The CCP has, however, changed its agenda to project Covid as a mere flu.

The Chinese government has so far remained silent on the number of deaths. However, the Chinese authorities have warned of successive waves of Covid infections in the coming months, as cases continue to rise after the lifting of restrictions earlier this month.
