Xi’an Kidney Disease Patients Cut Off From Dialysis Due to Covid Lockdowns
As the historic city of Xi’an battles a growing delta outbreak, some 100 people suffering from kidney disease and in urgent need of dialysis — some in critical condition — risk becoming collateral damage as they are unable to receive treatment due to lockdowns and hospital closures amid the spread of Covid-19.
Xi’an, capital of Northwest China’s Shaanxi province and home to nearly 13 million people, kicked off its second round of citywide testing on Tuesday after it reported a daily high of 42 Covid-19 cases linked to a flight from Pakistan. The city has recorded a total of 143 cases since Dec. 9.
