13 hours agoChina deletes 2 million online posts for ‘historical nihilism’ as Communist Party centenary nearsChina’s internet regulator has said it has overseen the deletion of more than 2 million posts containing “harmful” discussion of history, amid preparations to mark the Communist Party’s centenary in July. “For a while, some people have disseminated harmful information with historical nihilism on the internet, under the guise of reflection and declassification,” said Wen Youhua, a division director at the Cybersecurity Administration of China (CAC), during a press conference in Beijing on Saturday. “Historical nihilism” is a term coined by the Chinese government that refers to discussion or research that challenges its official version of history.Do you have questions about the biggest topics and trends from around the world?

President Xi Jinping reiterated in February that the party opposed historical nihilism as he ordered a campaign to study party history before the July 1 centenary. Wen said the deleted posts had “polluted” the online environment and his office had launched a specific campaign for the centenary. “Since the beginning of the campaign, we have lawfully dealt with a large number of [social media] accounts that disseminated historical nihilism,” he said. “[We] have urged various websites to delete more than 2 million posts that violated laws or regulations.” New textbook stirs debate by saying Cultural Revolution led to ‘disaster’ The CAC’s website invites people to report posts that “distort” the history of the party, or China since the party’s rule began in 1949. Other criteria given include “attacks on the party leadership”, “slandering heroes” and vilification of traditional Chinese culture. Marking the centenary has been identified as the party’s most important political task this year and Xi has promised a “grand celebration”. Officials across the country have been told to ensure “social stability”. The party has stepped up efforts to educate members and the public about its history, with several films and television dramas on the subject being broadcast. The campaign will cover party history since its 1921 origins, but focus heavily on “historic successes” achieved since 2012, Xi said in February. Xi became the party’s leader that year. In various speeches since then, Xi has linked discussion of history to the party’s legitimacy. In a 2013 address, he accused unnamed “hostile forces” of undermining the party’s rule by challenging its official account of the past. He has also acknowledged the party has made mistakes in the past, including the Cultural Revolution, a decade of political upheaval ordered in 1966 by Mao Zedong that lasted until his death. But Xi has described uncontrolled public discussion of such events as a threat to the party’s rule, and said it was partly responsible for the collapse of the former Soviet Union.More from South China Morning Post:Xi Jinping says China is ‘invincible’, regardless of challenges ahead‘Red tourism’ in China ahead of Communist Party centenary appears rampant … but with borders shut, where else is there to go?Will China’s jeers cost it the international moral high ground?Still taboo in mainland China: the Cultural Revolution as seen through the lens of Li ZhenshengThis article China deletes 2 million online posts for ‘historical nihilism’ as Communist Party centenary nears first appeared on South China Morning PostFor the latest news from the South China Morning Post download our mobile app. Copyright 2021.

2 days agoSouth China Morning PostCoronavirus: Hong Kong releases list of 10 vaccines approved for travellers arriving in city, eases strict quarantine rulesHong Kong eased its strict 21-day mandatory hotel quarantine for most vaccinated travellers on Wednesday, while health authorities have released a list of 10 approved coronavirus vaccines for inbound arrivals. Five Chinese-made and produced vaccines were among those on the approved list, including the single-dose, protein-based vaccine from Sinopharm which has two versions – one developed by the Beijing Institute and another in partnership with the Wuhan Institute. The Sinopharm vaccine was the only Chinese-made Covid-19 vaccine approved for emergency use worldwide by the World Health Organization (WHO) as of last Friday.Do you have questions about the biggest topics and trends from around the world? Get the answers with SCMP Knowledge, our new platform of curated content with explainers, FAQs, analyses and infographics brought to you by our award-winning team. CanSino Biologics’ single-dose jab, developed in partnership with China’s Academy of Military Medical Sciences, and the three-shot vaccine developed by Anhui Zhifei Longcom Biopharmaceutical and the Institute of Medical Biology at the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences were also on the list. Hong Kong will also recognise the vaccination records of travellers inoculated with the Pfizer-BioNTech and Sinovac jabs, which were also being administered in the city’s inoculation drive. Sinovac has been approved for emergency use in Hong Kong, and other places such as the Philippines and Thailand, but is not on the WHO’s list. The two-shot AstraZeneca vaccine, produced by the British-Swedish company and designed by the University of Oxford, and the single-dose coronavirus vaccines developed by J&J’s unit Janssen are also included, as is the Moderna vaccine developed by the US-based company, which uses the same mRNA technology as the one from Pfizer-BioNTech. Hong Kong has also included the two-dose Covishield vaccine manufactured by the Serum Institute of India, the locally produced version of the Oxford-AstraZeneca jabs. Singapore, which is slated to launch the quarantine-free travel bubble with Hong Kong on May 26, is administering both the Moderna and BioNTech vaccine in its inoculation drive. Woman got 4 doses of Pfizer vaccine by mistake Local health authorities announced last Friday that the 21-day hotel quarantine period for inbound arrivals would be shortened starting on Wednesday, depending on the risk classification of countries in their recent travel history. Under the new measures, fully inoculated people arriving from low-risk countries such as Australia, New Zealand and Singapore must undergo seven days of hotel quarantine and another seven of self-monitoring. A Covid-19 test on the 12th day after arrival will also be mandatory. Vaccinated travellers from medium- and high-risk countries, such as the United States, Canada, France, Germany and the United Arab Emirates, will now have to do 14 days of hotel quarantine, plus seven of self-monitoring, with compulsory tests on the 16th and 19th day. But there were no exemptions for the fully vaccinated arriving from very high-risk countries, such as Ireland and Britain, who will still have to do the full three weeks in quarantine. Meanwhile, flights from extremely high-risk countries such as Brazil, India, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines and South Africa remain suspended. All travellers will also have to test negative for the virus, and be able to show certificates proving they have been fully vaccinated, though there will be no antibody testing requirements upon arrival. The city’s 21-day mandatory hotel quarantine for all inbound travellers – one of the longest isolation requirements in the world – was implemented on Christmas Day when coronavirus variants began to emerge in Britain and Brazil in a move to limit the number of imported infections carrying mutant strains. More Covid-19 testing for Hong Kong helpers ordered, mandatory vaccination shelved So far, more than 260 Covid-19 cases in Hong Kong, most of which were imported, have been found to carry the mutated strains of the virus. Separately, all Hong Kong residents living in mainland China have been allowed to return to the city since April 29 without undergoing 14-day quarantine if they test negative for the coronavirus under an easing of some cross-border measures. The one-way arrangement under the “Return2HK” scheme was expanded to include a quota of 1,000 people through Hong Kong International Airport from mainland China, on top of the existing daily quotas for crossing via the Shenzhen Bay Port and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge of 3,000 and 2,000 per day, respectively.More from South China Morning Post:Coronavirus: Hong Kong to overhaul Covid-19 testing at quarantine hotels to improve quality controlSingapore imposes 21-day quarantine on most travellers, closes gyms to manage flare-up in Covid-19 casesThis article Coronavirus: Hong Kong releases list of 10 vaccines approved for travellers arriving in city, eases strict quarantine rules first appeared on South China Morning PostFor the latest news from the South China Morning Post download our mobile app. Copyright 2021. headtopics.com
