I can't speak for china and laws about this are at the state level here in the US.
I work at one in the US and anyone can be admitted if the person admitting them claims they are a danger to themselves or others. However only a 5
day admission in my state applies after 5 days they have to be released by a board of hospital and legal authorities, unless the doctor requests they
stay for more treatment and the board agrees, they will be released.
That being said we get patients all the time that think the govt. is out to get them or claim the CIA, FBI is following them etc.
If they were in this hospital and made those claims whether true or not they would be hospitalized for 90 days and checked to see if they have
schizophrenia because that is a normal symptom of it.
Best thing they could do is just act normal and not talk about it along with denying any accusations of that by laughing and calling it absurd.
Again this is just my local laws and I have no idea how china or even if china has laws on this.
