According to Reuters of today, "China plays lonely game of Covid whack-a-hamster". The report said China Hong Kong is culling two thousand hamsters after 11 of them tested positive and claimed such a dogged devotion to Covid-zero policy is becoming "farcical, and costly", as the rest of the world learns to live with the virus.
Well, people of developed countries care hamster, a kind of pet, more than flesh human lives. Anyway, the total 5.5 million deaths in the world so far mostly are have-nots, seniors, ethnic minorities in those wealthier countries, or the pathetic people of other poor countries. The cold figure of tolls is definitely not the main concerns pertaining to those cold-blooded politicians, capitalist, and baron robbers.
Western countries must be desperately envious of China still in growth despite her nearly draconian measures taken in fighting against the virus. Deep down in the hearts of Chinese people, humans are equal, and every single life matters.
PS The term "whack-a-hamster" is derived from a game named "whack-a-mole"(打地鼠)
