There were 2,999 new local COVID-19 cases reported in China
Of these new locally infected cases, 2,573 were reported in Shanghai, Xinhua reported.
Shanghai, China’s financial center, is facing a deadly COVID – 19 outbreak and is desperately seeking basic supplies such as medical care and food.
Shanghai authorities have imposed tough lockdown measures since March, which have locked up 25 million residents in their homes.
The Chinese government announced on April 3 that it would deploy thousands of troops to Shanghai to assist in the mandatory testing of a total of 25 million residents for the virus that causes Kovid-19.
On April 4, Shanghai officials said the city would be in lockdown indefinitely – meaning residents would not be allowed to leave their homes as it reviews the results of the mass Kovid test.
Meanwhile, gruesome videos have surfaced showing Shanghai residents screaming from their windows over the harsh COVID lockdown measures that prevent them from even leaving the house for food.
He said in a clip posted online by a Twitter user online that he was taken by his close father who reported that “people (people) are screaming outside their windows after a whole week of lockdown” because they could not even “step outside. Their apartments”.
According to news.com.au, a lot of screams can be heard from the windows of nearby apartment buildings in the footage.
China’s much-publicized ‘Zero-Kovid’ strategy, which until recently was credited by the government for bringing the country out of the pandemic, is collapsing because rapidly rising cases are again forcing mass lockdowns as seen in 2020. (ANI)
