In China, they don’t play around with “oh but should we quarantine the viral people or is that too mean?”
Chinese police used huge iron bars to barricade a screaming woman inside her home in a bid to stop the spread of the deadly coronavirus that has already killed at least 360 people.
Authorities in Nantong, Jiangsu Province, were filmed locking the woman in her apartment and stopping the family from leaving.
Police even put up a sign warning neighbours to ‘stay away’ and not to have contact with the people who lived inside because they had recently returned from the outbreak’s epicentre of Wuhan.
The footage showed masked men dressed in black screwing huge metal bars and over the doors and windows.
In a video posted on social media on Thursday, a woman could be heard screaming as uniformed officers locked her inside.
Around seven officers barricaded the family inside, with one telling them ‘don’t come out’ as the bars were put in place across the front door.
A sign was then stuck next to the door after it was sealed off, reading: ‘This family came back from Wuhan. Stay away, no contact.’
Some officers used their mobile phones to film the final stages of the bars being put in place.
Online videos from other areas around China showed similar scenes in which authorities locked potentially infected families in their homes.
One video reportedly taken in the capital Beijing showed wooden planks being nailed across an apartment door.
Many cities have been put on lockdown, with residents only allowed to leave their homes to buy food and face masks.
Hubei, the province of more than 50million people at the centre of the outbreak, has made it compulsory to wear masks in public.
China’s most populous province Guangdong has also done so along with Sichuan, Jiangxi, Liaoning and the city of Nanjing, with a combined population of more than 300million.
The eastern industrial city of Wenzhou was put under a similar lockdown to Wuhan on Sunday.
The G7 countries – Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Britain and the United States – have all confirmed cases of the virus.
Yeah, they’ve all got cases, but none of them are protecting the people in the way the Chinese are protecting the people.
If China survives this, they are going to be really mad at the CIA for releasing this disease in their country.
