Anybody fond of Wikipedia in China has to now look out for other options, as all language editions of Wikipedia have been blocked in mainland China.
This happened since April.
The Wikimedia foundation has confirmed the move and stated, “After closely analysing our internal traffic reports, we can confirm that Wikipedia is currently blocked across all language versions.”
The researchers on Internet censorship found that Wikipedia had collaborated with thousands of other websites that are inaccessible in China.
It is to be noted that the country had previously banned the Chinese language version of the site, but the block has now been expanded.
Looking at the previous history, Wikipedia faced a similar stance in 2017 where the site was blocked in Turkey and then followed by Venezuela this year.
