The U.S.-based Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) has predicted that China’s tight COVID-19 restrictions could result in an explosion of cases and over a million deaths through 2023 after being abruptly lifted in response to unprecedented protests under the Xi Jinping regime.

According to the group’s predictions, cases in China would reach their peak around April 1 2023 and 322,000 people would die. According to Christopher Murray, director of the IHME, approximately one-third of China’s population will be infected by that time, according to the news agency Reuters.

As of the lifting of the coronavirus curbs, China’s national health authority has not yet reported any official COVID deaths. On December 3, there were no more reported official deaths. There have been 5,235 pandemic-related deaths country wide. China’s sizable population of susceptible people, the use of less effective vaccines, and the low vaccination rate among people 80 and older are some crucial issues related to the COVID surge.
