COVID concerns have led governments worldwide to pass mandates that some assert have put people at more risk than actually contracting the virus. It’s hard thinking about millions of people not being able to get groceries.
In Locked-Down City of 13M, People Running Out of Food
Lockdown rules bar people from leaving the home to grocery shop
(Newser) – The Chinese city of Xi’an has been locked down since Dec. 22, and this lockdown is more extreme than most. In a quest to maintain China’s “zero COVID policy,” the New York Times reports workers have been tasked with spraying disinfectant throughout the city, and Xi’an’s 13 million residents aren’t permitted to leave even for essential reasons, like getting groceries. That’s a tightening of the original rule, which allowed a food-related excursion once every two days in the city, home to China’s famous Terracotta Warriors. But as of Monday, the only accepted reason to leave the home is for COVID testing, and the BBC reports that some residents say they are running out of food.
