China’s New COVID Strategy: Infect Everyone! Reach Herd Immunity!

HONG KONG, CHINA - OCTOBER 4: People protest a government ban on face masks in Central on October 4, 2019 in Hong Kong, China. Hong Kong's government invoked emergency powers on Friday to introduce an anti-mask law which bans people from wearing masks at public assemblies as the city remains on edge with the anti-government movement entering its fourth month. Pro-democracy protesters marked the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China in Hong Kong as one student protester was shot in the chest in the Tsuen Wan district during with mass demonstrations across Hong Kong. Protesters in Hong Kong continue to call for Chief Executive Carrie Lam to meet their remaining demands since the controversial extradition bill was withdrawn, which includes an independent inquiry into police brutality, the retraction of the word riot to describe the rallies, and genuine universal suffrage, as the territory faces a leadership crisis.

  • After pursuing a futile Zero-COVID strategy, the Chinese Communist Party has done a 180-degree pivot. Now it’s goal is to open up society and infect as many people as possible, with the goal of reaching herd immunity as quickly as possible.
  • The CCP’s plan is to “let those who are destined to be infected get infected,” according to an official who viewed an internal document.
  • The CCP’s plan is to have the entire population reach herd immunity on a full scale in two months, so that people will go back to work and production will resume at normal levels.
  • The recent massive infections and even deaths of COVID patients, among whom many were high-ranking officials, seem to confirm that the CCP is indeed carrying out a forced herd immunity campaign.
