Most deaths are probably stress-related more than anything else. It's just too complicated to grasp.

Anti-lockdown protests spread in China as anger rises over zero-Covid strategy
Beijing students shout ‘freedom will prevail’, as Urumqi fire prompts levels of disobedience unprecedented in Xi era

Protests against China’s stringent Covid restrictions have intensified, as a wave of civil disobedience triggered by a deadly fire in the far west reached levels in the mainland not seen since Xi Jinping assumed power a decade ago.

At Beijing’s elite Tsinghua University, students shouted “freedom will prevail” and called for an end to lockdowns, while crowds also returned to Middle Urumqi Road in Shanghai for a second day, and pushed down pandemic barricades in Wuhan.

In an unusually bold act that appeared to indicate the level of people’s desperation, a crowd in Shanghai had called for the removal of the Communist party and Xi in a standoff with police late on Saturday, according to videos circulated on Twitter. Chinese people usually refrain from criticising the party and its leaders in public for fear of reprisals. “Communist party! Step down! Xi Jinping! Step down!” they chanted.

In other footage, people chanted, “No PCR tests, we want freedom!”, followed by rounds of repeated calls for “Freedom! Freedom!”. The slogan echoed the call of a lone protester in Beijing in October.

Despite many documented police arrests of protesters on Saturday, people returned to the streets of Shanghai – China’s biggest city and a global financial hub in the east of the country – on Sunday.

In Beijing, a Tsinghua University student told AFP some students held up a blank piece of paper near the canteen at about 11.30am, and 200-300 people had joined them by the afternoon. Blank sheets have become a symbol of the burgeoning protests.

According to videos shared online, protesters shouted: “This is not normal life, we’ve had enough. Our lives were not like this before.”

Johnny Harris had a reasonably balanced and thorough video about the lab leak theory.

Scarier than malaria.

Whoa! Good stuff. Never heard of this guy, despite being engaged in the topic. So YT algorithms set him off the main road, so to speak.

The National Library of Medicine has released a rather bizarre report which seeks to blame common side effects of the vaccine on stress caused by those who are against mandatory vaccination and for individual choice. . .

What about the mental stress that the powers to be nurtured, telling everybody we're all going to die of a cold, creating hysteria
Most of the people who passed were out of shape sadly.
Parents were asked to play Russian roulette with their and their kids health.

So sad.
