Despite the high social and economic costs, China has remained committed to a “Zero-COVID” policy. Its measures have not stopped the spread of the virus but have further fueled public discontent with pandemic-related restrictions.
According to Chinese media Xin Tang Ren, one incident happened in Jingzhou City, Hubei Province, on October 12. The residential building was reportedly closed, and the public elevator could not be used. Community personnel hired a crane truck to pick up one infected person who lived on the eighth floor.
On the same day, another photo showed that a fire truck allegedly used a crane to take people to quarantine sites.
It is reported that the students of the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics rejected being taken away for quarantine and blocked the dormitory door. Therefore, the school used other ways to remove students and take them to quarantine sites.
