六、Information about the pandemic in mainland China is not transparent, threatening people’s health and safety

  • Date:2021-10-08

The CCP authorities prioritize “stability maintenance” to consolidate power, hence actively blocking any information that can affect the stability of public opinion. However, the CCP’s lack of information transparency has created a considerable breach in epidemic prevention and health care. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the CCP locked down areas with confirmed cases, screened all inbound passengers, and adopted specific screening methods that could cause damages and burdens in personal health, safety, freedom, finance and time.

Example: It is widely believed that the rapid spread of COVID-19 was the result of local officials’ intentionally concealing information for fear of upsetting the central government. The source of information within mainland China is mostly the state-run media outlets, which is another reason why response to the pandemic was delayed.
