The video was presumably filmed during one of China’s draconian Covid-19 lockdowns in which anal swabs were increasingly common throughout the country’s ‘quarantine centers,’ including ports of entry.
“Japan has asked China to stop taking anal swab tests for Covid-19 on its citizens when they enter the country,” the BBC reported last year. “Some have complained that the procedure caused them ‘psychological distress,’ officials say.”
“China, which has largely brought the virus under control, started carrying out anal swabs in January .”
The video received attention after WEF founder Klaus Schwab recently declared China as the “model for many nations,” despite its numerous human rights abuses and the lack of upward mobility for millions of its citizens.
“I think it’s a role model for many countries,” Schwab said. “I think we should be very careful in imposing systems, but the Chinese model is certainly a very attractive model for quite a number of countries.”
It’s worth noting that freedom of speech is non-existent in China, a country known for not only its brutal treatment against people criticizing the government, but also for its suppression of religious freedom.
“The Chinese government is wary of religion for several reasons. China is officially an atheist state and Communist Party members are banned from believing in or practicing any faith; there is concern that religion can function as an alternative to Communism and thus undermine loyalty to the government,” reports Human Rights Watch. “…As interest in religion has increased, so have efforts by the state to control it, in part because the government is convinced that religion breeds instability, separatism, and subversion, with Christianity and Islam in particular seen as vehicles for foreign influence and infiltration.”
