Meanwhile, in Shanghai, we’re at the stage of lockdown where “health care workers” are now literally beating pet dogs to death with shovels after they send the Covid-positive owners into quarantine:
"In one video clip verified by the news service AFP, a person in a hazmat suit is seen bludgeoning a corgi dog to death in the street."
Public health China style, an inspiration for Team Lockdown for future waves. So much to learn. https://t.co/fEbM5sCAZE

Oh, and authorities attempted to justify the killing by saying maybe the dog was infected, too. From CNN:
“In the end, I thought I could let (the corgi) loose outside to become a stray, at least it wouldn’t starve to death,” the owner wrote in an online group, explaining he had no dog food left at home, according to China News Weekly. “I never thought once we had left, it would be beaten to death.”He claimed a neighborhood committee had declined to help care for the dog, the magazine reported. The committee said it was concerned the corgi could have been infected too.
And the dog murder is reportedly not an isolated incident:
Also in Shanghai: a corgi beaten to death on the streets in the name of covid control. This is the 3rd pet dog to have been killed by anti-epidemic workers. The first 2 were another corgi and a samoyed, killed at home while their owners were in quarantinehttps://t.co/4gbl2gid21

Some residents of Shanghai are also experiencing food shortages:
Shanghai is buckling under a city-wide lockdown with no end in sight.

– A man vents: "Where is the Communist Party?"

Can people in America please stop praising China now? Pretty-please? This is insane:
One week into Shanghai’s Covid lockdown, many residents are calling urgently for help in securing food. Restrictions have shut down grocery stores and restaurants, leaving people dependent on unpredictable government deliveries and online ordering.https://t.co/3hcs3cgwnF

And, as you might expect, China’s censors are working overtime to keep the truth from coming out:

Hey, keep going with that whole “Zero Covid” BS. You’re doing great, China!
"In China it doesn't appear they're trying to use the mitigation, these lockdowns to buy themselves time to get immunity into the population. There's no large-scale effort to get people vaccinated … The lockdowns seem to be the ends in of itself," @ScottGottliebMD on #Shanghai. pic.twitter.com/WmJLvCPqXz

And that’s exactly what they’re doing:
"We expect the construction of the whole hospital will be completed within 3 days."
