La Cina sta vivendo il più pronunciato picco nel numero di infezioni dall’inizio della pandemia Covid-19 alla fine del 2019. Finora, la città più colpita è stata Shanghai, dall’inizio di aprile, sottoposta a un duro confino che ha isolato milioni di cittadini. Ora anche Pechino ha rilevato un aumento del numero di infezioni e la popolazione teme di dover affrontare misure simili alla più grande città del Paese. Mentre gran parte della società cinese mette in dubbio l’efficacia delle misure restrittive “Covid zero” adottate dal governo ed esprime il proprio disaccordo, l’economia ne subisce le conseguenze.
