Lockdown In Shanghai, Video Of People Shouting Imprisoned In Homes


China is following the ‘Zero Covid Policy‘. Given the spread of Covid in Shanghai, China’s largest city, the government of the Communist Party of China has imposed a strict lockdown on the entire city.

Meanwhile, videos of people angry with the strict Covid lockdown have surfaced in which people can be heard shouting in their apartments. Videos are popping up on social media platforms in which people can be seen fighting with local officials. People are warning that such a strict lockdown can have dire consequences.

Lockdown In Shanghai

Under its strict Covid policy, China has wholly closed Shanghai since April 5 to prevent the spread of infection. Twenty-six crore people of the city have been imprisoned in their homes.


Eric Feigl-Ding, a well-known health scientist, living in America, tweeted some Shanghai videos. While tweeting the video, he wrote that the people of China are shouting in the local dialect of Shanghai from the apartment.

He wrote in his tweet, ‘On the seventh day of the lockdown, residents of Shanghai are shouting from their high apartments. A person shouting says that there are going to be many problems. He says that people cannot be held for long. He says tragedy will happen.

Dr Eric further wrote in his tweet that the people’s anger would come out soon.


Confirming the integrity of the video, he wrote, ‘The video is thoroughly verified. My sources have verified this. Shanghainese is a local dialect. Only 140 million Chinese speak it out of China’s 1.3 billion population. I know this language because I was born there.

The health expert said that Covid cases are increasing rapidly in Shanghai, and Omicron’s BA.2 version will increase further in China.

People struggling with a shortage of food items

Due to the strict lockdown in Shanghai, there has been a severe shortage of food items for the people imprisoned in their homes. Many videos have come out in which people are seen trying to save vegetables for more days while spending less.


On Sunday, 25 thousand Covid infection cases were reported in Shanghai. These cases are significantly less compared to other cities of the world. Still, according to China, after the outbreak of Covid from Wuhan in 2019, China is facing the most dangerous Covid infection ever.

There is a complete ban on the exit of ordinary citizens on the streets of Shanghai. Only health workers, volunteers, people delivering goods and those with special permission are allowed out on the streets.
