Quarantine and Testing From the Second CCP Virus Outbreak Wave Comes at a High Cost in China

2020-05-20 23:16
In Shenyang city, located in China’s northeast, a second wave of the CCP virus outbreak has occurred at the city’s No. 463 Hospital, which resulted in its lockdown. Residents revealed that quite a few people have contracted the virus, but local authorities are not reporting the situation. The authorities have adopted a large-scale quarantine. Some Twitter users disclosed that the cost for the 14-day quarantine in Shenyang is 8,286 yuan ($1,167), which is even more expensive than that in Shanghai. Some residents criticized the authorities of profiteering from the pandemic. State-run media reported on May 15 that the latest outbreak began in Shulan city located in China’s Jilin province and then spread to Shenyang. At present, more than 7,500 people have been isolated and under observation in Shenyang and have been receiving the nucleic acid test. The reopening of schools has been postponed again. Some Twitter users revealed that the 14-day quarantine fee in Shenyang—including food, lodging, and testing—is 8,286 yuan ($1,167), which is higher than the cost in Shanghai. They said that the hospital runs like a black market by profiting from the pandemic. Shenyang resident Mr. Li disclosed that because many people were infected at the hospital, it was closed the day before, but local authorities are covering up the situation.
