Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey responds to China’s draconian COVID policies: ‘End the CCP’

Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey responded to a news segment on the Chinese government’s current approach to COVID-19 policies with a simple message.

After Dorsey saw a report highlighting the strict COVID-19 policies the Chinese government has in place, over two and a half years since the pandemic began, he offered a solution: “End the CCP.”

The report stated that COVID-19 testing in China is strict and constant, adding that a public health-oriented phone application dictates where someone can go.

According to the report, a green code is needed whenever entering public areas, and a red code means that the individual has to go into quarantine.

COVID-19 testing is mandatory for Beijing’s population, which is over 20 million people, according to the report.

Elsewhere in China, such as Shanghai, the city ended a two-month lockdown on June 1.

During the Shanghai lockdown, residents of the city struggled to get necessities such as food. China has a “zero COVID” approach to the pandemic, meaning that a slight uptick in cases in a city could lead to widespread lockdowns.
