Covid-19 has taken the world by storm and China seems to be in deep trouble again as it is most likely to suffer from a second wave of the global pandemic as a bunch of cases emerged earlier this month. Wuhan’s authorities had no choice but to order the testing of all eleven million inhabitants.
The nation’s top respiratory authority claims that it is the lack of immunity among the community which is the root of this dilemma. Already, 82,000 coronavirus cases with 4, 633 deaths have been reported in China.

It should be reminded that this lethal disease hit the country in January, hence leading to an immediate lockdown of the entire city and canceling all flights.
The following month, the daily reported cases had fallen to double digits. Still, this led to an ease of the confinement period. Some factories and schools were accessed permission by the state to operate again.
Dr Zhong Nanshan, the Chinese government’s senior medical adviser is however of a different opinion. He says the country is still at risk. Authorities should not be so self-assured that the pandemic has wiped off, since there is no guarantee that it has left no trace.
Dr Zhong has mentioned very clearly “The majority of … Chinese at the moment are still susceptible of the Covid-19 infection, because of a lack of immunity … We are facing a big challenge, it’s not better than the foreign countries I think at the moment.”
According to Dr Zhong facts about infected cases have been hidden from the very beginning.
He adds “At the very beginning they kept silent, and then I said probably we have a larger number of people being infected.” Other doctors and some of his former students equally shared the opinion about the virus reaching a critical stage.
