By India Today Web Desk: Chinese singer and songwriter Jane Zhang is facing massive flak on social media after she said she deliberately infected herself with coronavirus. This comes at a time when China is witnessing an alarming surge in Covid-19 cases, driven by the BF.7 Omicron variant.

The singer said she infected herself with the virus by visiting friends who tested positive for the virus. On Weibo, the singer said that she also visited the homes of ‘sheep’ – virus carriers, the South China Morning Post reported.

WHAT DROVE THE SINGER TO SELF-INFECT HERSELF?

Explaining her preposterous decision, Zhang said she wanted to catch the virus so that she would not be at risk of infection during a New Year’s Eve concert. “I was concerned that my condition during the New Year’s Eve performance would be affected. So I met a group of people who tested positive since I currently have time to recover from the virus,” she wrote.

After she began experiencing symptoms such as fever, sore throat, and body aches, she went to sleep, the singer, 38, said. Although her symptoms were similar to those of a Covid patient, they only lasted a day, she said.

“After sleeping for a day and a night, all my symptoms disappeared… I just drank plenty of water and took vitamin C, without taking any medicine, before I got well,” she said.

However, her post and reasoning did not bear well with the public. A barrage of criticisms later, Zhang was forced to take down her post and apologise.

“I didn’t consider things carefully before making my previous posts. I apologise to the public,” she wrote on Weibo. “I was worried that if I got infected when the concert was held, it would increase the risk of my colleagues being infected again. So I was thinking that since it is an inevitable thing, why not get ill now when I don’t need to leave home so that I can go to work after I recover? It would be safer for all of us,” Zhang argued.
