Shanghai imposed a citywide lockdown on its 26 million residents on April 1, 2022 to combat the spread of COVID-19. It caused widespread public anger over issues such as crowded quarantine facilities, difficulties in accessing food and loss of income.

CNA’s Low Minmin was in Shanghai reporting on the lockdown as residents lived through those two months of frustration, anger and despair. Many did not think such chaos could happen in Shanghai, China’s most advanced and wealthiest city. In this week’s CNA Correspondent, Minmin documents the lockdown that left the metropolis scarred.

When Hong Kong fought for their freedom, mainland chinese condemned them. When Ukraine fights for their freedom, mainland Chinese laugh at them. Now that they are oppressed, no one is fighting for them anymore. This is karma well deserved

I feel so sorry for the Shanghai people. It seems the poltics of covid is more damaging than the actual virus itself.

Knowledge and wisdom don't come from the east anymore.

After successfully fooling the world with the first lockdown, China is repeating it again for the sake of ambition to become world number one, this is funny

Dhulasedharan Kannan says:

Simply an extension of the west's reaction to the pandemic.

When back in 2021 I had to make a decision if I want to go abroad or study remotely at my home, I chose to go oversea cause I was afraid of this kind of scenario will happen around my area, and it happened, over and over again in different cities… Well, I am safe to say I am lucky, and I have to say this: never trust the government too much and always keep yourself informed, or you will be ending up like this.

Laura W says:

No country should treat their people so poorly

Ever think about WHY they're not letting their people get infected with a brain damaging virus?

Jennifer Ho says:

It is not like a life sentence of 50 to 60 years in a prison cell of 6 by 6 room .

Jennifer Ho says:

Lives are more important than money. I admire the Chinese government for their steadfast devotion to its people. Look at the 800,000 deaths in India and 650,000 deaths in the US.
