China Covid restrictions presser is old, not linked to 2023 illnesses

In December 2023 as some cases of respiratory illness were reported in China, a post viewed thousands of times claimed a video showed an official announcing Covid-like restrictions – but the clip was taken out of context.

Hong Kong journalist Jeff Li used reverse-image search and found two matching clips for the video dated to early December 2022, before China had lifted its Covid-era restrictions.
