Even with the strict quarantine in China, there is a possibility of overkill that the company will barely forgive its government. A series of outrageous events in Shanghai, where 25 million people have felt the effects of a strict zero-tolerance strategy for five weeks, put the May Day case in their pocket.
The moment of “resurrection” was experienced by a senior from the Shinchangcheng nursing home, whom the staff called dead. The coroners wrapped the body in a body bag and took it to the morgue. Their daily routines changed the moment someone realized that the man in the sack was still alive.
The incident, which took place on Sunday afternoon, did not escape the attention of the people around. According to a widely shared video, one of the workers in protective suits was pulling the gurney out of the van with the body when she looked at the bag.
“He lives! Did you see that? He’s alive!” says one of the men in the protective suit in the video. “Don’t cover him up anymore!” another shouts. Then they go to the morgue attendants and they let the old man in.
The video immediately sparked angry reactions and rekindled the debate about the cramped medical system in Shanghai. The industry hasn’t just consumed the five-week quarantine. Also, the Chinese are undermining the economy with an uncompromising approach to Covid-19. Experts have already warned that the situation in Shanghai, coupled with the lockdown in Beijing, will have an impact on the global supply chain.
The plight of an early “buried” senior did not go unanswered, even at higher levels. The Puduan district government confirmed that the incident did indeed occur and is investigating six people. The Shanghai Inspection Commission and Central Disciplinary Control Commission said five people, including the nursing home director and a doctor, were suspended and under investigation. One of the party officials then scolded the officials.
Shinchang Nursing Home apologized. On the other hand, praise was poured in by the funeral home, which allegedly praised the workers for their carefulness and rewarded each of them with 5,000 yuan (about 17,600 crowns).
According to Chinese state media, it was reported that the patient was taken from the morgue to the hospital, where necessary care was provided. Judging by the reaction of the local population, the last wave of omicron is testing not only the economy and the health system, but also the confidence of the population.
According to the British Guard, one of the television’s commentators said, “What would have happened if this event had not been filmed by any of Shanghai’s citizens?” Said. “Retirement homes are a last resort for many seniors, especially some lonely seniors who have no other choice,” said another. “Now who would dare to send their parents to a nursing home? And who would live in a nursing home with a calm soul?”
Shanghai authorities tried to avoid a complete quarantine for a while. But at the beginning of April, they changed their minds. During the closure of the city of nearly 25 million, problems such as food shortages and shortages of supply regularly arose, causing people to protest in every possible way – not just behind apartment walls, but mostly online.
The Shanghai quarantine has given the world of viral videos a few. In addition to the senior in the body bag, for example, people howling balconiesa beaten pet of a quarantined man, or a worker chasing cars and begging for food.

The pace on the streets of China’s largest city is mainly determined by workers in protective suits spraying disinfectant around every corner. For example, firefighters, local youth leagues, rescuers and volunteers from remote parts of China have been assigned to this role.
According to local media, they have set up special chemical stations in some neighborhoods in Shanghai. Elsewhere, the Chinese equipped vehicles with tanks and devices resembling cannons and sprayed disinfectant on the streets. Disinfection robots are deployed, for example, at train stations.
But experts warn that all these efforts can only be a waste of time, effort and resources. According to them, the risk of virus transmission between contaminated surfaces is extremely low. Disinfecting open spaces such as parks and city streets is largely pointless and, worse, may even pose a public health hazard.
When politics precedes science. Could all these chemicals be worse for most people than the virus?

“Robots and street spray disinfection are performative actions designed to increase public confidence in government action,” said CNN Nicholas Thomas, associate professor at City University of Hong Kong. He drew attention to the rhetoric of Chinese officials, who vigorously tried to prove that the virus may not come from China. It is a problem that politics dominates and moves away from science,” he said.
In the case of Shanghai, where all resources are exhausted, the assignment of volunteers and disinfection workers can only be a mask.
“There’s actually no point in mass disinfecting open spaces, sidewalks, and walls. It’s very unlikely that they’re contaminated or that the disease is transmitted that way,” said Dale Fisher, a professor at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine in Singapore, part of the National University. ” said.
The World Health Organization (WHO), for example, recommends disinfecting doorknobs in crowded public places, but its guidelines state that “spraying out disinfectants, even outdoors, can be harmful to human health and cause irritation or damage to the eyes, respiratory tract, or skin.” .
Shanghai isn’t the only city they’re struggling with Covid. People of Ningpo, south of Shanghai, can only use public transport or roam around public places if they have a negative test no older than 48 hours.

Beijing is also taking strict measures. But it avoids a full lockdown and instead uses frequent testing of millions of people in at least 12 regions. According to BBC correspondent Stephen McDonell in China, millions of people queue for PCR tests every three days.

Restaurants in restaurants are not working, entertainment institutions and schools are closed. Travel to and from the city is also limited.
In the last wave, China discovered 368 symptomatic coronavirus cases and 5,647 asymptomatic cases.
