Chinese authorities have warned residents not to discuss the outbreak

It turns out that China’s coordinated and excessive siege measures have caused more and more trouble to the residents. As a result, the Uyghur community naturally experienced a certain degree of fear and accusation. These reactions in public places have upset the Chinese authorities again; As a result, they carried out campaigns under the name of “not spreading rumours” and “don’t believe rumours”, and in some places, they threatened residents with arrests and interrogations.

It turns out that after the siege measures implemented due to the increasing number of corona virus infections in the Uyghur region caused serious difficulties to the lives of the residents, some people shared some of the difficult information with the public through the means of audio and video in order to extend help to each other. For the Chinese authorities, who are not used to hearing opinions and reactions other than praise, this intelligent self-defense information activity of the residents was seen as dangerous and issued a special notice, warning the residents not to discuss the virus situation.

A Chinese cadre in Turpazu Village, Yining County, revealed that residents of the village have been warned not to spread rumors or believe in rumors about the virus situation. He said that the authorities found that the residents only listen to the information issued by the government, and only then broadcast it, and do not listen to or broadcast any other information. In particular, there is a special order not to discuss the virus situation.

When the virus appeared in Wuhan in 2019, the blocking of information by the Chinese authorities was considered by relevant international experts to be one of the reasons for the epidemic to become an epidemic, and the Chinese authorities were criticized internationally for this reason.

It appears that international calls for transparency in information about the virus situation have not swayed China. According to a rural police station officer in Yining County, the campaign to not spread negative information about the virus situation in the village was carried out not only by the village government officials, but also by the relevant political and legal cadres.

In Tohuchi Village, Yining County, police officers checked people’s mobile phones and detained and interrogated those who found so-called “useless information” about the virus situation on their mobile phones. A few months ago, in Yerken County, they launched a “10 Don’t Do” campaign, including “not to keep, carry, and discuss materials that are classified as state secrets.”

Online reports suggest that the authorities this time cited the hardships of the siege and warned and threatened residents who were afraid of it, while also promoting flattering propaganda messages praising the Chinese side’s measures. As a result, songs about the viral situation were created and widely distributed on social media such as TikTok. In one of these, China’s siege measures were particularly praised.
