The ruling class in China’s large city of Shanghai has decided to forego the lockdown of the entire city, resorting to only locking down half of the slaves at a time. However, that did not stop the panic buying after these lockdowns were announced.
China reported 6,886 domestic Covid cases nationwide on Tuesday, with more than 4,400 of them detected in Shanghai, now the center of the country’s worst Covid-19 outbreak since the early days of the pandemic. But in a city of about 25 million people, 4,400 people getting the sniffles is not a big deal, unless you need to keep the fear of a virus alive and well.
