Kopers jaag na die uitgange terwyl Sjanghai Ikea in die spervuur ​​gaan

Paniekbevange kopers het Saterdag na die uitgange by 'n Ikea-tak in Sjanghai gehaas nadat stadsgesondheidsowerhede die winkel beveel het om toe te sluit nadat 'n noue kontak van 'n Covid-19-saak na die plek opgespoor is.

Multiple videos on social media showed customers yelling and pushing each other in an attempt to escape the building before the doors closed.
CNN has reached out to Ikea’s press office in Shanghai for comment.
    In a press briefing Sunday, Zhao Dandan, deputy director of the Shanghai Health Commission, het die gesê “store and affected areawould be under “geslote kring” management for two days. People inside the loop must undergo two days of quarantine and five days of health surveillance.
      Maandag, city health authorities reported six locally transmitted Covid-19 cases in Shanghai, of which five were asymptomatic.
        Sjanghai, China’s financial capital and home to 25 miljoen mense, was locked down for two months earlier this year, leading to widespread public anger as residents reported difficulties in ordering daily essentials including food and medicine.
        The lockdown was imposed under China’s rigid zero-Covid policy, which relies on mass testing, extensive quarantines and even confinement of entire cities to stamp out any resurgence of the virus.
          Relying on mobile technology and big data, the Chinese government uses a color-basedhealth codesystem to control people’s movements and curb the spread of the virus.
          People in many Chinese cities must present a green health QR code to ride public transport and enter venues including shopping malls, gyms and restaurants. The system logs their whereabouts and whether they have been in contact with a confirmed Covid-19 casethose whose health codes turn red face almost certain confinement to quarantine facilities.
            Snap lockdowns have become common in the country, with the public growing increasingly frustrated with the stringent rules as the economy struggles to adapt to the disruption.
            Verlede week, meer as 80,000 tourists were stranded in the popular resort island of Hainan after authorities announced lockdown measures to stem an outbreak of the virus.
