Chinese authorities are deploying police officers to remove residents from their homes to turn the residential buildings into COVID-19 isolation sites in an effort to enforce the nation’s “zero COVID” policy.
!n video footage shared on social media, Chinese law enforcement officials in hazmat suits are seen scuffling with outraged residents after they were forced to surrender their homes.
Authorities began the forced evictions on in Shanghai on Thursday, the Guardian reports.
“Authorities began ordering 39 households in one housing complex to move so that patients with Covid could be housed there ‘in order to meet the needs of epidemic prevention and control,’ as government officials rush to construct tens of thousands of beds to house patients with Covid,” the publication notes. “China’s internet censors quickly stepped in to scrub evidence of the clash from Chinese social media sites – as they did with several other videos that have appeared over the last few weeks – with search results for the name of the apartment complex disappearing from Weibo by Friday morning.”
Angry residents in Shanghai are heard crying and screaming at law enforcement officials after being evicted from their homes.
Police in retaliation begin beating and arresting the demonstrators before hauling them into trucks in footage published by Chinese journalist Jennifer Zeng, who regularly documents the inhumane conditions in China.
As the Gateway Pundit has reported, the communist Chinese government is also using the COVID-19 pandemic to starve its people.
China’s financial capital, Shanghai, began what was announced to be an eight-day lockdown on March 28, but has since enforced an indefinite citywide quarantine.
Chinese citizens are desperate for food and other basic necessities.
In China’s state-run wards, where food and resources are also scarce where patients are held like inmates and fight over water, food, and limited supplies.
In addition to being food-deprived, those held hostage in the isolation facilities are subject to hazardously unsanitary conditions.
