1 million may die! Study estimates new round of coronavirus deaths in China  Residents of Beijing stood and waited at a community clinic on the 15th  The death toll from COVID-19 in China could be approaching one million after the Chinese government eased lockdown measures, according to a new study from Hong Kong, according to Bloomberg.

Some members of the team visited Beijing in early November and proposed to lift the lockdown measures.  The report also mentioned that the health care system in all provinces is insufficient to deal with the surge of new crown cases after reopening. The report also emphasized that reopening in a more orderly manner would have saved lives; if China had waited until January, after increasing vaccination rates and providing more antiviral drugs, the death rate could be reduced by a quarter.
