Covid-19: A video tweeted by user @songpinganq showed the horrifying reality of Chinese Covid curbs

It looks like a scene from a dystopian movie. Rows and rows of metal boxes, Covid positive people being brought in buses to quarantine in these boxes. The scenes from a Covid quarantine centre in China are the stuff nightmares are made of.

A video tweeted by user @songpinganq showed the horrifying reality of Chinese Covid curbs.

China has imposed several draconian rules on its citizens under its "zero Covid" policy, placing millions under quarantine even as Beijing prepares to host next month's Winter Olympics.

People, including pregnant women, children and elderly, are being forced to stay in these crammed boxes furnished with a wooden bed and a toilet - for as long as two weeks - even if a single person tests positive in their locality, the Daily Mail reported.

In several areas, residents were told just after midnight that they need to leave their homes and go to the quarantine centres, the report added.
