DW News published this video item, entitled “‘No Covid’: A way out of the coronavirus pandemic? | COVID-19 Special” – below is their description.
Violent protests in the Netherlands at the start of the year. People venting their anger against coronavirus restrictions demanding politicians come up with a long-term strategy to deal with the pandemic.
Easier said than done:
In the Chinese city of Wuhan, total lockdown broke the chain of infection. Today things are almost back to normal in the city where the pandemic began.

And the economies are suffering all the same.
It’s time for a silver bullet that ends the pandemic! Could the “No-Covid” strategy be the answer to our prayers? Here’s what it’s about.DW News YouTube Channel
