Clashes in China as people try to leave coroavirus-hit Hubei

Mar 28, 2020 20:57 IST

In a rare display of public anger in China, dozens of people in central Hubei province, which was the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak till recently, attacked official vehicles after they were stopped from crossing a bridge and travel to neighbouring Jiangxi after the lifting of the lockdown. Videos on Chinese social media showed unprecedented scenes of police from Hubei and Jiangxi clashing on the bridge connecting the two provinces over barricades erected from stopping Hubei people from moving out over fears of coronavirus spreading. Hubei province with over 56 million people was kept under lockdown from January 23 as part of aggressive measures to bring down Covid-19 cases which rapidly spread in the area.
