While the United States is fooh-la-la’n and outside amid #COVID, a city in China is currently on lockdown.
According to CBS, the residents of the northeastern city of Changchun were ordered to be on lockdown Friday “amid a new spike in COVID-19 cases in the area attributed to the highly contagious omicron variant.”
Yucheng, a city in the eastern province of Shandong, was also ordered on lockdown with a population of 500,000 people. This is the strict approach China is taking against the pandemic that plagued the earth two years ago.
If you recall back in 2020, Wuhan, China–previous epicenter of the virus-was shut down for 76 days at the peak of the pandemic. In Jan.2020, the Centers For Disease Control ordered all 195 American evacuees from Wuhan, China, who were evacuated to March Air Reserve Base in Riverside County, to be under Federal quarantine for a total of 14 days, due to possible exposure of the coronavirus.
At the time, this was said to be the first to happen in 50 years–due to the new coronavirus cases that have grown in recent days. The last time the CDC issued a quarantine was in the 1960’s for smallpox, according to NBC News.
Roomies, what do you think of this?
