On July 6, a resident in Wuxi complained on Weibo that the residential area is controlled and they are not allowed to go out to buy food. However, authorities in the area said they have no money, so they can’t distribute necessities or food to residents. After that, they only gave people in this area 3000 packs of traditional medicine and thought it could stop the epidemic.

Is the use of force for urban employees a duty in China?
According to the Chinese government, urban management work consists of two parts: surveillance and punishment. The law enforcement staff must pass the examination to obtain a certificate issued by the provincial legal affairs office.
These urban management team members who hold law enforcement certificates are considered “regular workers.” Besides, their assistants, who don’t have a law enforcement certificate, can only remind residents. If this fails, the problem is transferred to the law enforcement staff.
However, in reality, there are still employees wearing urban management uniforms who use force against people. In the footage shared on the internet, these urban staff directly beat people without any reason. They kicked an old man who was riding a bicycle and even knocked a weak girl like thugs.
