- Affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the people of Shenzhen city, Guangdong Province, suffered both electricity outages and water cuts. A video posted online shows a large group of residents late at night carrying buckets and lining up to get water. Netizens saw this and said: “In the daylight, we queue up for nucleic acid testing, at night, we queue up for water.”

NTDTV reposted a video from a Shenzhen netizen on Weibo showing that, on the evening of July 30, at Longjing Road, Shenzhen City, a long line of people waiting to get water. After a hard day’s work, at night they still have to wait for the water truck to arrive, then take the water home to bathe and only then go to bed.
