As Shanghai’s Covid lockdown goes on, residents fight over bags of food

Ms Tsai said she spends more than four hours a day on delivery apps, hoping to catch a window in which goods – which vanish sooner than stores can restock them – are available to order for delivery.

On Monday, as China’s largest city entered its third week of lockdown, the government announced that it would ease restrictions in some areas.

Officials said they would group residential units into three risk categories, allowing “appropriate activity” in neighbourhoods that have had no positive cases over a two-week stretch.

Among the first districts to release citizens was the central area of Jing’an. By Monday afternoon, residents were posting pictures of people walking outside.

Gu Honghui, a Shanghai city official, said the city would be divided into 7,624 areas that would remain sealed off, while 2,460 would be subject to “controls” after a week with no new infections. Meanwhile, 7,565 “prevention areas” would be opened after two weeks without a positive case.

People in “prevention areas” would be allowed to move around the neighborhoods while observing social distancing, said Mr Gu. The areas could be sealed off again in case of new infections.

But the changes did not appear to do much to allay anger and concerns. “The zones have been divided into government officials’ zone, rich people’s zone and poor people’s zone,” wrote one Weibo user. Another warned: “No matter how many zones you create, nobody will trust you.”
