Is this the end of China's COVID zero?

Protests are breaking out across parts of China in response to the Chinese government zero COVID restrictions.
The number of COVID cases has soared in China in recent weeks, rising at a similar rate to what happened in March this year.

The outbreak was quickly brought under control, by the use of the Government's severe measures such as forced external quarantine and city wide lockdowns.

But with widespread discontent and protests, it may prove harder to keep this outbreak under control. So is this the end of China's COVID zero?
