Today, the Chinese Communist Party reached new lows in the Shanghai lockdown, as a video emerged of a COVID prevention worker killing an owner’s dog to ‘stop the spread,’ and the city began to starve.
Along with a video of a government worker in full personal protective gear beating a corgi to death with a shovel because its owner allegedly tested positive, several videos have emerged of altercations between citizens and lockdown enforcers.
Shanghai citizens say that authorities are preventing them from leaving their designated areas for all essentials, including food, and that they have begun to starve.
As previously reported by The Counter Signal, the Shanghai lockdown has been brutal from the start.
Almost immediately, the CCP began separating children from their families if they tested positive and their parents did not, housing them in facilities where they’re jammed shoulder to shoulder in steel cribs.
As the Daily Mail reports, “… anyone found positive — even if they are asymptomatic or have a mild infection — must be isolated from non-infected people.”
“That includes children who test positive but whose family members do not, health officials confirmed on Monday, defending a policy which has spread anxiety and outrage across the city.”
“‘If the child is younger than seven years old, those children will receive treatment in a public health centre,’ Wu Qianyu, an official from the Shanghai Municipal Health Commission, said Monday.”
However, besides the few altercations and despite the vast number of human rights abuses, the city has practically become a ghost town. Near-total compliance with the CCP’s zero-COVID policy appears to have been achieved.
Of course, much of this compliance is only made possible by China’s social credit score and digital ID, which allows the CCP to rate citizens based on their rule-following and decide if they have access to their bank accounts and other ‘privileges’ of society this week.
