Liberty Times reported that an Internet video showed a scene that was likely to be taken on a street in Xiaogan City, Hubei Province, which had implemented “Wartime Control.”
The video showed that buildings along the street were all sealed from the outside using blocks. People were working on nailing the blocks in place. People watching the video asked how the residents on the inside could escape if there was a fire or how they could go to the hospital if they were infected with the coronavirus.
Local residents reported that, even so, people still managed to get together to play mahjong or cards.
