Covid lockdowns have seeped into China once again, as the Communist Chinese have shut down one of its largest cities – Shanghai.
The residents of Shanghai are currently enduring yet another harsh lockdown strategy by the government and the results have been devastating to the citizens, as they are forced into starvation because they are unable to leave their apartment buildings to buy food and commodities and some are even resorting to simply throwing themselves from their windows.
Now reports are leaking out about China moving citizens into concentration “quarantine” camps, to keep people “safe.”
Shanghai’s mass quarantine camp, located in the city’s exposition center, keeps lights on 24 hours a day and doesn’t provide any facilities for showering – despite being kept there for at least a month.
A Ukrainian by the name of Jane Polubotko, told the Wall Street Journal that she was detained in the concentration-style camp, after she tested positive for omicron. Polubotko said in her entire stay at the facility, there was never a dark night.
Herself and thousands of other people were confined to a large room, which was partitioned off in an office style set-up. The cubicles contained a mattress and there were no showers available. Polubotka said she was made to feel like a “covid criminal.”
She spent a total of 18 in a row unable to shower because of her confinement.
“Hearing nothing but silence and being able to adjust my own lighting,” Polubotko said about her experience returning home. “I won’t take these things for granted again.”
These facilities have been called a “fang Cang,” or square cabin and is essentially a makeshift hospital, set up to handle the overload of “cases,” to allegedly prevent additional “transmission.”
Not once did the Ukrainian detainee actually get sick, despite her omicron positive test, but was forced against her will to stay inside the facility for over three weeks. It’s estimated that there are around 270,000 people currently being held in these quarantine facilities.
The Wall Street Journal reported that, “Shanghai has built more than 100 makeshift hospitals with a total capacity of more than 160,000 beds for COVID-positive individuals with mild or no symptoms, according to state media.”
“The city had 7,776 people hospitalized and more than 220,000 under medical observation, China Daily reported Thursday.”
The world at large has mostly moved past covid, which is why there is a great concern about what is happening in China – they kicked off the first round of lockdowns when the pandemic began. It may be hard to convince Americans a second time that lockdowns – which didn’t work the first time and caused more damage than anything else – would work.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, however, has been suggesting the idea as plausible, so it’s best to stay vigilant, lest the government want to take away your rights again.
