"Threaten the whole world": CDU politician wants to cut flight connection with China

After nationwide protests, China is relaxing its strict zero-Covid strategy. Since then, the number of infections has skyrocketed. Jürgen Hardt, foreign policy spokesman for the Union faction, sees Germany at risk and calls for flights to and from China to be stopped.

In view of the veritable explosion in the number of corona infections in China, the foreign policy spokesman for the Union faction, Jürgen Hardt, calls for all flight connections between Germany and the People's Republic to be stopped. “The exploding Covid numbers in China caused by the Chinese government’s failed corona policy are threatening the whole world with a new wave of infections,” he told the editorial network Germany.

"We must not repeat the mistake of three years ago and should now stop all flight connections to and from China immediately," Hardt demanded. "Only when we are sure that there is no threat of a new, dangerous mutation from China should we resume flight connections."

The CDU foreign politician also spoke out in favor of renewing the offer to Beijing to use effective mRNA vaccines there. The "arrogance" of China's President Xi Jinping is "virtually limitless," said Hardt, who also described Xi as a "dictator." "His hubris costs lives in his own country every day."

After nationwide protests, the People's Republic surprisingly heralded the end of its controversial zero-Covid policy this month, and the number of infections has been rising ever since. According to the authorities, it is now impossible to estimate the number of corona cases due to the end of the obligation to test. For its part, the World Health Organization (WHO) was “very concerned” on Wednesday about the worsening corona infection situation in China.
