This Chinese city has special isolation rooms in which thousands of asymptomatic people live, and the rest of its residents are actually under house arrest.

It would seem that the coronavirus pandemic has already become a thing of the past, and countries, one after another, are canceling quarantine measures. However, in the homeland of covid-19, in China, the authorities are in no hurry. There, not only the sick are still subject to isolation, but also people whose illness is asymptomatic, or simply who have a positive test. Moreover, if a positive result turned out to be in children, they are simply taken away from their parents. "Dangerous" Chinese are settled in such state shelters. There have already been problems with food, so people have to fight for rations.

Shanghai is recognized as a particularly dangerous zone, in which 70 thousand people are thus isolated from society. Moreover, since the end of March, all 26 million residents of this city are actually under house arrest. You can no longer leave your own house even for shopping, as well as for shopping at the pharmacy. Initially, the total lockdown was to last only four days. But the measures were extended indefinitely. And this is when the whole world removes restrictions.

As you know, the Chinese traditionally buy food mostly fresh, so they have little stock at home. As a result, there is not enough food supply, there are problems with the supply of the population, for which the government is responsible. Monitoring compliance with a complete ban on exit is carried out with the help of drones and robotic dogs.
