A brutal COVID-19 lockdown in Shanghai has left many scrambling for food.
People aren't allowed to visit stores, and delivery services are often sold out there.
So people have been trying to by bulk straight from suppliers, then bartering with neighbors.

People in Shanghai took desperate measures to avoid going hungry as a sweeping lockdown confined millions of people to their homes amid dwindling supplies.

The Chinese city of 26 million has been hit by intermittent shortages during the lockdown, which began on March 28 but has been extended.

The lockdown, much harsher than those seen in Europe or North America, precluded people from leaving their homes to buy groceries, and left delivery services unable to cope.

The government in Shanghai made some efforts to give people food directly, but many found the deliveries were unreliable or insufficient.

Officials said the lockdown would ease on April 5, but it was then extended indefinitely, exacerbating food supply problems, The Guardian reported.

The city has seen record numbers of cases in its latest Omicron wave, after having largely avoided the pandemic through most of 2020 and 2021. Monday was the 10th straight day of record new case numbers, according to the South China Morning Post.

China’s Wealthy Elite Are Fleeing The Country Thanks To CCP’s ‘Zero-COVID’ Policy

Many of China’s wealthiest citizens have increasingly sought to emigrate from the country in recent months as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has instituted some of the world’s strictest lockdowns as part of its “Zero-COVID” policy.

Roughly 13,000 high net worth individuals plan to leave China and Hong Kong within the next year and are poised to bring roughly $60 billion in total assets with them, according to a report from investment migration consultancy firm Henley & Partners. The large-scale exodus comes partly as a result of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s particularly aggressive “zero-COVID” policy, according to Fortune, in which regions with elevated positivity rates have been placed under strict lockdowns that have led to food shortages and riots and COVID patients have been forced to wear electronic monitoring ankle bracelets.

I smell a rat. More likely that $60 is a diaspora to buy up assets in the West for future control. If the CCP did not want high net worth people to leave, it would confiscate their assets.

They are going to have a VERY hard time getting their assets out of the country.

I agree, although I imagine one could play clever games to get most of their wealth out. Like, start a business that contracts americans to do certain expensive work, so you can pay that american company big bucks for "products and services" but in reality its a shell company meant to hold your transfers. Or "sell" chinese products far below cost to an american company that will deposit the difference into an account for you. i.e. a product that normally sells for $10, they publicly pay $4 to china, and also secretly pay $6 into your american account.

I imagine americans also do these kinda games to get big bucks / big returns into self directed IRA accounts too.

Tencent employees in Shenzhen fleeing after an employee tests positive for Covid and a full lockdown is announced.

This is why I don’t worry about China taking over the world. They are < a decade away from total unrest - 1 billion have-nots storming the streets.

Ongoing Covid fraud in China is allegedly a political purge under cover of Covid name. Covid is the religious training imbued in the populace to induce the appropriate herding behaviors.

Will the mainland Chinese ever achieve 'Covid Propaganda Attenuation and Exhaustion' where the Covid pretense and fraud stop working?

I read there were several instances in the past since 1940's where the CCP (Globalist Khazarian implants?) had their go bags and foreign bank accounts ready to flee the country.

Three Gorges Dam will likely fail catastrophically at some point in the near future. I wonder if that will be the CCP death nell, or some other economic situation.

CHINA - Numerous reports coming through of citizens having to sleep on the streets in Shenzhen because they missed PCR tests and QR codes showing red, prevented them from entering their apartment.
