New Delhi: Shocking videos have once again surfaced from China, where it has imposed many harsh rules on its citizens under the “zero covid” policy. Millions of people are being put under quarantine here while Beijing prepares to host next month’s Winter Olympics.
According to the Daily Mail report, people including pregnant women, children and the elderly are being forced to stay for two weeks in iron keels equipped with wooden beds and toilets, even though a single person has tested positive in their locality. .
In many areas, residents were told after midnight that they needed to leave their homes and go to quarantine centres.
Many videos posted on social media Twitter show how people are running away from home to avoid this new policy of the government.
However, in Tianjin city, the government has now sent thousands of people to COVID quarantine camps in hundreds of buses. In a video released on Twitter, it was told that if only one Covid case is found in your apartment building, all the residents of your building will be sent to COVID Quarantine Camps.
In China, the mandatory track-and-trace app means that close contacts are usually traced and quarantined quickly.
According to the report, about 20 million people are now imprisoned in their homes in China and banned from leaving their homes even to buy food.
This comes after a worrying case of a pregnant Chinese woman miscarrying after a strict lockdown delayed her access to medical treatment. The incident sparked a debate on the limits of China’s zero-tolerance approach to COVID-19.
Corona virus was first detected in China in 2019. He enforces a “dynamic zero” to contain the outbreak: strict lockdowns and immediate mass testing.
People in China may be banned from leaving their buildings or forced to stay inside hotel rooms if they are considered high-risk contacts.
