The name 996.ICU refers to a saying among Chin

hinese developers that following the 996 schedule puts you at risk of ending up in an intensive care unit.

In the weeks that followed the creation of 996.ICU in March, the page ha

s accrued almost 200,000 stars-which indicates popularity among users.

Users listed tech companies that use the 996 schedule, and then crea

ted a licensing agreement that would ban such companies from using their codes.

The 996.ICU page was soon blocked on multiple platforms including the messaging tool WeChat and the UC Browser.

The 996 schedule was allegedly first adopted in 2016 by 58.com, a major online classified advertisement site.

Jiang Ying, a professor at China University of Labor Relations

and a leading expert on China’s Labor Law, said the rare protest by sleep-deprived tech f

irm employees underscored the difficulties facing workers who defend their rights.

Fang Yan, a lawyer from Shaanxi province, said that it’s good to see the nation adding to the protectio

n of juveniles in the past few years, “but in some new aspects, such as cyberspace, the protection is far from enough”.

At the end of 2018, China had 829 million netizens, of whom almost 20 percent w

ere under the age of 18, according to the China Internet Network Information Center.

Another report released by the center in March said that 15.6 percent of juven

In the latest case, which was discovered on March 12 in

Linshui county of Guang’an, Sichuan province, a transport truck carrying 150

 pigs, nine of them dead, was seized at a toll station.

It was the second case in March after an outbreak that killed 20 pigs on a

breeding farm in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region was confirmed on March 7.

The next step, Yu said, is to maintain the momentum of the ongoing disease preven

tion and control measures and strengthen oversight over the slaughtering sector.

On Friday, the ministry launched checks on slaughterhouses nationwide and

ordered them to carry out self-inspections.

Yu stressed the need to secure supplies of live pigs and pork products.
