2:06 pm
they all work plaque cards around the next that seem to have their photographs. now these men have been reportedly sentence for trafficking people across the vietnamese border. and just for a little bit of context, this is taking place in the city of ging, she, china's province of guam, she, this is relative to china. it's a very poor area. it's quite a small city on the border. and in recent months, ging, she is actually arrested incentive dozens of people for similar crimes of trafficking. now in china we have this 0 tolerance approach to covet 19, but the border areas in particular are very vulnerable to outbreak because of the poorest. no, sir, i've been a lot of outbreaks around different borders in china, and so the authorities in these areas are under extreme pressure to keep covered 19 cases down. and we see obviously these authorities here in gene she problems wanted to make an example of these people wanted to deter people from committing future
2:07 pm
crimes. and that has spark this online backlash not only online from medicine, but we've also seen a state media actually the beijing news prints and editorial saying that these authorities went too far. this is beyond the scope of discipline in accordance with the war. this cannot be allowed to happen again. and another editorial or article in the global time saying that related officials should be punished for these actions. can i also ask you katrina about the city of c, m, or she and maybe you can correct me, which one of those is the correct pronunciation? went into locked down last week. city of 13000000 people, but case is still on the rise. that's right. so china is currently battling one of its worst outbreaks that the country has seen in months. she and it's a city in the north, west, not too far from aging, is about 2 hours flight. it's a huge historical city, very popular with domestic tourists. this city has been under very strict locked

2:09 pm
60 percent of which is now attributed to the omicron variant and the nation's for most infectious disease expert, dr. anthony thought she is predicting that it will only get worse before it gets better. he says the peak of this current surge will likely come in late january. we're seeing much of this happening now in the north eastern part of the us with places like new york city here in washington, d. c. and surrounding states. people queuing for hours in search of coven tests, and then one in for, in many communities coming back positive. now if there is some silver lining, it's the evidence that here to the omicron variant is resulting in milder infections. because while those cases of jumped some 70 percent since a week ago and number, the hospitalization has not kept pace, that's gone up by just 15 percent. but when you just look into each individual case, those are still each person occupying hospital beds and hospitals are swamped with
