While the entire world is again under the fear of COVID-19, Chinese singer Jane Zhang has recently been making news for intentionally injecting herself with COVID-19 for the strangest of reasons. She later apologized after social media users panned her for her bizarre actions. The development comes after Zhang took to social media platform Weibo, and announced infecting herself with virus in preparation of New Year’s Eve concert.

Taking to Weibo, Jane Zhang Liangying said, “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.”

Naturally, Jane started exhibiting symptoms which included fever, body aches, and sore throat. She proceeded to sleep, and as per her claims, recovered from the symptoms within only a day. She explained that although her symptoms were similar to COVID-19 patients, they didn’t last long.

Social media users in China, who are already facing the wrath of the virus, didn’t take too kindly to Jane’s brash actions. They panned her left, right and centre, for getting infected with COIVD-19.

Jane later took to her social media and wrote, “I didn’t consider things carefully before making my previous posts. I apologise to the public.”

The Facts of the Matter

Masks are out, antibiotics are stored, and sanitizers are being hoarded – this report from 2022 may strike resemblance to reports from 2021, or 2020, when COVID-19 had wreaked havoc across the world. Unfortunately, the crisis appears far from over, and nations are collectively urging its population to not let their guard down, as another wave of COVID-19 looks inevitable.

Strange Decision, Stranger Motive

In such a situation, a Chinese singer went in the other direction. At a time when citizens across her country are dreading the virus, fighting it or succumbing to it, Chinese Singer Jane Zhang made the questionable decision of injecting herself with the virus.

While one may consider Jane’s actions to be questionable, her reasoning behind her actions is equally shocking and cringe-worthy. Recently, Jane took to social media platform Weibo and mentioned going to homes of ‘sheep’, a term used in China for virus carriers, to get herself infected with the virus.

“I apologise..”

This social media condemnation prompted Jane to later apologise to people and further explain her situation. “I didn’t consider things carefully before making my previous posts. I apologise to the public,” she wrote.

“I was worried that if I got infected when the concert was held, it would increase the risk of my colleagues being infected again.

It would be safer for all of us,” she went on explaining.
