As the world opens up, China locks down, again. This is a protest outside the world’s largest iPhone factory, where workers are being forced to live at work, with no outside contact. After thousands of Foxconn employees walked out over unsafe working conditions, those who replaced them are now protesting. Reports say these mask-wearing protesters are asking for better working conditions. There are claims that several workers living in shared dormitories are infected with the virus. But Foxconn has rejected these allegations. The police - dressed in hazmat suits - are crushing the protests by beating people to the ground, and making arrests. China currently has the highest daily figures since the virus was first detected. According to China’s National Health Commission, there have been more than 31 thousand new cases in a 24 hour period. And authorities are reporting the first Covid deaths in six months. .
