Beijing: A shocking video has come out from China once again, where it has imposed many harsh rules on its citizens under the "Zero Covid" policy.
Millions of Chinese are being held under quarantine, as China prepares to host next month's Winter Olympics.
According to a Daily Mail report, people including pregnant women, children and the elderly are being forced to live for two weeks in iron cells equipped with wooden beds and toilets, even if only one person in their area is found Covid-19 positive.
In many areas, residents were told after midnight that they needed to leave their homes and go to quarantine centers.
Several videos posted on social media Twitter have shown how people are fleeing their homes to escape the government's new policy.
However, the government has now deployed hundreds of buses to thousands of people in covid quarantine camps in Tianjin city.
A video released on Twitter states that if only one Kovid case is found in your apartment building, all residents of your building will be sent to Covid-19 quarantine camps.
In China, the mandatory track-and-trace app means that close contacts are usually traced and quickly quarantined.
According to the report, about 20 million people are now imprisoned in their homes in China and even banned from leaving their homes to buy food.
It comes after a worrying case of miscarriage of a pregnant Chinese woman following a severe lockdown, in which she has been denied access to medical treatment. The incident sparked a debate on the limits of China's zero-tolerance approach to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The first case of coronavirus in the world was detected in China in 2019. The Chinese government is applying the 'Zero Covid Policy' to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic which includes strict lockdown and mass testing.
In China, people can be banned from leaving their buildings or forced to stay inside hotel rooms if they are considered high-risk contacts.
