China has been seeking a Zero COVID policy but still experiencing outbreaks of the virus in various places even after vaccinating over 76 per cent of its population. The country had no option but to try for zero infections as the coronavirus was duplicating quickly and the global death rate of around 2 per cent was not acceptable.
