Xi Jinping - food crisis? (General)

This would meet Dan's criteria if it's true.

Was just thinking has Xi made any public comments about Covid whatsoever? Nothing that made the western press anyway. On one hand you've got the US President ranting on twitter every day and on the other there's Xi's cone of silence.

Then lo and behold today he commented about food wastage. China has been hit hard by flooding this year in the south which would have impacted agriculture, compounded by Covid's interruption on the supply chains. When you've got 1.4 billion mouths to feed it can become precarious quickly.

Ostensibly, it's sensible not to waste food at any time - so nothing wrong with the message - just wonder if there's more to it.
