@China Daily:[Henan Minquan County assigns red and yellow codes to all personnel? Local release notes]On August 3, in order to ensure that the risk of the epidemic did not spill over and that no one was missed in the nucleic acid testing of all staff, Minquan County continued to manage the townships, offices and static management of the county’s medium and high risk (village, community) locations.

At present, a large number of netizens have posted “malicious comments” in the @SohuNews comment area to ridicule Minquan County of Henan for once again abusing its administrative power and undermining the credibility of the health code system.
In the comment area of the news posted by the official account @shangqiu, there are many accounts whose IPs belong to Henan Province who frequently publish “land-washing remarks”, which are suspected to be the official navy.
In June 2022, several depositors who made deposits in several village banks in Henan reported that they came to Zhengzhou, Kaifeng and other places to try to withdraw money offline one after another because they could not withdraw their deposits. However, after arriving, the health code was assigned a red code, which hindered normal travel. On June 22, the official announced the results of the investigation and accountability of the “depositor red code” incident: a total of 1,317 village and town bank depositors were assigned red codes, of which 446 were assigned to the Zhengshao site code and 871 were not present. Zheng Dan was given a red code by scanning the Zhengzhou site code sent by others, and a number of relevant responsible persons were given administrative sanctions, but no one was criminally held accountable.
