Why are so few old people vaccinated in China?

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 5 aprile 2022

China remains the focus of our covid-19 coverage. The lockdown in Shanghai is the biggest test yet of the government’s “zero-covid” approach to snuffing out the virus. Whereas other countries made vaccinating the old and other vulnerable people a priority, only about half of China’s over-80s have been fully vaccinated. This week we explore why that is, and the impact the lockdown will have on the Chinese economy and global supply chains.In the West, memories of the chaos of 2020 are already fading. But a report in Britain this week into the government’s purchase of protective gear made for uncomfortable reading. Mistakes were made when sourcing PPE during the height of the outbreak. But not all of them were bad. In the Business section, our Bartleby columnist makes the case for managerial decency (which could be a useful read for Peter Hebblethwaite, the beleaguered chief executive of P&O Ferries). A study examining how chief executives responded to the outbreak of covid has found that managerial displays of humanity are good for share prices, not just staff morale.Zanny Minton Beddoes Editor-in-chief Yhe Economist
