A few days before Xi’s re-election, a banner in the middle of a Beijing flyover that addressed him as a ‘traitor’ also escaped out in the media.

Almost 250 million people in China may have caught Covid-19 in just 20 days of December, according to an internal estimate from the nation’s top health officials citing leaked government documents published by several media outlets.

As much as China’s 18 per cent (approx) population of China has been affected by a fresh surge of Covid 19 infections. As per the leaked notes of a 20-minute meeting of China’s National Health Commission, these many cases have been recorded between December 1 to 20.

On Friday, a copy of these meeting notes  was circulated on Chinese social media.
