Solving the covid the Chinese way. Uyghurs locked in quarantine starve to death

At least 20 people have died in one day in the Chinese city of Ghulja, where most Uighurs live, from hunger or lack of medical care during the mandatory covid quarantine. Videos showing the suffering of imprisoned Chinese citizens pleading for help are circulating on the Internet. These are not the first death cases caused by the strict lockdown, the Chinese city of half a million has already reported death cases. He informed Free Asia Radio.

Uighurs in China, Xinjiang province, are dying in quarantine because they don’t have enough food or medical care. Videos of citizens complaining about the lack of food are circulating on social networks. The videos have been deleted by the Chinese government. The authenticity of the videos cannot be verified.

The city of around half a million people, mostly Uyghurs, has been on lockdown due to the covid pandemic since the beginning of August this year. More than 600 residents have already been arrested by authorities after taking to the streets to protest the lack of food.

Uyghurs demand UN action following a damning report by the UN’s human rights chief, which said China’s arbitrary detention and crackdown on Uyghurs and other minorities Turkish forces in Xinjiang “could constitute international crimes, in particular crimes against humanity”.

The Uyghur Autonomous Region is not the only place where Chinese citizens face cruel treatment from the government. Videos are circulating online of Chinese airports where residents who tested positive for covid-19 are being brutally detained and taken away.

As we have already written, in the context of quarantine, 27 people died in a bus accident in China last week, who are believed to have been transported in quarantine. The bus overturned on Sunday September 18 in Guizhou province. There were 47 passengers on board, 27 died, 20 were injured. The Covid-19 quarantine disaster, which many Chinese denounce, quickly became a hot topic on the Chinese social network Weibo. But critical positions quickly disappeared.
