‘Wuhan nightmare’ recurs in Shanghai: People are forced to leave their homes, make room for Covid-19 patients, but even kneeling and begging

The situation of Covid-19 epidemic in Shanghai

In the past week, news and news agencies in China have published a series of articles about the situation in Shanghai. When the whole world is gradually learning to live with Covid-19, the “most populous country” is still steadfast in its “Zero Covid” plan. Authorities ordered a blockade of Shanghai after recording 13,000 new infections in a day.

The blockade order this time can be said to be the most stringent, applying to Shanghai’s 26 million residents. People are not allowed to leave the house for any reason, including taking out the trash. All must order food and essentials online. Then the shipper team will be responsible for delivering. However, everything is always out of stock, and if you can buy it, the price is “in the sky”.

The people of Shanghai are in deep conflict with the government.

In just a few days, the lives of the people of Shanghai have changed just like the situation in Wuhan that year. When the time of the Covid-19 epidemic in Shanghai began to break out. SCMP reported, tension between the people and the police is pushing to a high here.

In Zhangjiang (Shanghai, China), the police stormed into people’s houses. And drag them out to arrest them because they often go out for no reason. Apartments in the Zhangjiang Nashi International area have become a place of mass isolation without consulting the people.

Residents at this building said they were told to move elsewhere on April 14 to make room for Covid patients. When the tenants protested, the police in white protective gear used force to pull them out of the house. Even if people ask for an exemption for the elderly, they don’t care. Women and children were crying and begging because there was no place to stay.

Shares of people amid the Covid-19 epidemic situation in Shanghai

Recently, a video appeared online showing a woman, kneeling in the middle of the road and crying in despair. Then, police in white protective suits burst into the building. The two sides clashed and people were restrained shortly after. The video was widely shared online and was removed by censors not long after.

“There’s no food or drink and no one can stand it. What the hell are the police doing?” – An anonymous user shared.

Most of the officers here are wearing white protective suits. So it is very difficult to distinguish who from whom to attribute responsibility. The police in Shanghai are now acting very tough. They are willing to do anything to put everything on an isolated trajectory. Anyone who opposes them will take strong action without any negotiation.

From a busy and bustling Shanghai, now there are no people.

“The police are another matter, don’t talk about it. But even the cleaners refuse to collect the garbage from my apartment complex. I know they are afraid of getting sick, they take care of their family, but what about us? “. Cissie Hu, a Shanghai woman shares her situation.

The police seem to be the “bridge” between the people and the outside world. But now Shanghai people don’t put their trust in them anymore. That’s why the protests and riots began.

“They wear protective gear and are not afraid of infection, and freely do what they like without fear of responsibility. I don’t know when this hellish situation will end.” – A resident lamented.
