Chilling footage has shown thousands of insects swarming the skies at a border in China. They reportedly come from a plague that has devastated east Africa in recent weeks.
Billions of the insects have destroyed food supplies across Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia in what has been described as the worst plague for decades.
But footage has now surfaced showing thousands of the locusts seemingly reaching the border of China, adding yet more problems to a country struggling to contain the deadly coronavirus.
The clip is believed to have been taken on the Xinjiang border in the west of the country on February 15.
It shows the blue sky filled with the locusts as far as the eye can see.
The plague has flown across the Red Sea into Europe and Asia in recent days.
Pakistan – which borders China – recently declared a national emergency over the locusts.
But the Communist Party of China has tried to downplay the severity of the swarms reaching the country.
They claim their modern technology and sufficient stocks which have not been seen in Africa will prevent any widespread damage.
That has had little impact among residents already worried about the spread of coronavirus though, which has already killed 1,770 people in mainland China.
Another said: “You can believe what the experts say? Just listen to it.”
One expert, quoted by the Epoch Times, warned that the locusts could pose a direct threat to China, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam.
But others were less worried, suggesting they would not be able to spread into the snowy region of Xinjiang. (Click to Source)
