Shanghai Residents Heard Screaming from Windows as COVID Lockdown Continues; Shanghai Residents Trapped in Lockdown Scream from Their Windows, Fight over Limited Food, and other C-Virus related stories

Shanghai residents heard screaming from windows as COVID lockdown continues:
Disturbing footage captures the moment ordinary citizens in Shanghai appear to start screaming out of their windows, after being forbidden from leaving their houses for over a week.
The world’s third-biggest city has been under total COVID lockdown since April 5, with food supplies said to be running low as China’s government struggles to cope.
Video originally shared on Chinese social media shows the Shanghai night skyline, with dozens of high-rise apartment blocks visible.
In the background, dozens of screaming voices, seemingly from a number of different locations, can be heard simultaneously.
What appears to be a searchlight is being shone out of one of the apartment buildings.
The clip is just the latest disturbing video to emerge from Shanghai, where 26 million people have been forbidden from leaving their homes for five days.
On Saturday, starving shoppers were filmed looting a supermarket after only being granted paltry government food rations.
Other footage includes the sound of people screaming for food and medical supplies.
In horrific scenes, a pet corgi was filmed getting beaten to death by a health worker after its owner reportedly tested positive for COVID. --->READ MORE HERE

Videos: Shanghai Residents Trapped in Lockdown Scream from Their Windows, Fight over Limited Food:
Videos surfacing on social media in the past week from Shanghai – and rapidly deleted on government-controlled sites like Weibo – show mounting desperation as a poorly planned coronavirus lockdown leaves the heart of China’s economy with rotting food and a lack of basic necessities.
Many of the videos surfacing on Weibo, China’s most popular micro-blogging platform, cannot be independently verified and disappear shortly after they appear, but translators outside of the country have saved and circulated them, painting a picture of a growing catastrophe alongside anonymous warnings from farms and food distributors that their supplies are rotting while people fear starvation because the Communist Party will not allow enough people to work to distribute the food
The videos follow reports that Beijing deployed the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) to patrol the city and keep people locked in their homes at gunpoint.
The Chinese Communist Party announced it would impose its “most stringent antivirus measures ever” on its largest city in late March, allegedly necessary to contain the highly infectious omicron variant of Chinese coronavirus.
The announcement followed hints in state media outlets that Beijing would not continue to impose its radical, mass house arrest policy in Shanghai due to the economic significance of the city, followed by condemnation of local officials for not acting to lock down the city sooner – an indication of discord between dictator Xi Jinping and his top officials in Shanghai. --->READ MORE HERE
