Shanghai’s coronavirus lockdown of 26 million residents has caused “doubt, anxiety, and fatigue," China’s state-run Global Times acknowledged.

The newspaper detailed two especially tragic examples of Shanghai’s plunging public morale in recent days, writing:

A phone call recording went viral of a desperate elderly man in Shanghai’s Xuhui district asking the community committee for help as he ran out of medicine and food.

In another sad story, a public health official in the city’s Hongkou district reportedly died by suicide after he, like many other grassroots officials, had been relentlessly fighting the Omicron outbreak.

The Global Times said it interviewed “a dozen residents in Shanghai from at least five districts” on April 14 and learned they had all encountered adversity in recent weeks.

The various hardships included “food shortage, delayed transfer of their infected neighbors to collective quarantine places, and the chaotic handling of residents’ daily requests in some neighborhoods [by local Communist Party officials].”

As Breiatbart reported:

Shanghai’s latest Chinese coronavirus outbreak allegedly began in early March, according to the Communist Party, and the city’s government ordered all schools to shut down indefinitely on March 12.

The metropolis has witnessed its epidemic of the disease grow worse in the month since then, resulting in local Communist Party officials forcing Shanghai into tighter levels of lockdown as the situation progressed.

The Party sealed off one half of Shanghai for five days at a time from March 28 to April 5 to conduct mass testing for COVID-19.

Shanghai’s government extended the partial lockdowns to include all of Shanghai indefinitely in a surprise announcement issued to the mere public hours before the original measure was set to expire on April 5.

The Chinese Communist Party’s failure to properly plan or execute Shanghai’s total lockdown has been exposed in recent days through anecdotal accounts shared on Chinese social media platforms, such as Weibo, by Shanghai residents.

As Neon Nettle reported:

Distressing videos emerged from Shanghai show desperate residents, locked down by their government due to COVID measures, screaming from their windows because of limited food supplies.

Many of the videos that surfaced on China’s most popular micro-blogging platform, Weibo, showed residents screaming from their apartments, although the clips cannot be independently verified.

Although the videos are quickly removed by the Chinese Communist Party-controlled Internet, translators outside of the country have saved and circulated them.

The videos paint a grim picture of a growing catastrophe alongside anonymous warnings from farms and food distributors that their supplies are rotting while people fear starvation.
