WATCH: Fed up with strict Covid curbs, Shanghai residents scream from buildings

A video circulating on social media shows people yelling from their windows after being confined to their homes for seven days in Zhongyuan Liangwancheng, one of the biggest residential compounds in the city.

Shanghai residents screamed and shouted on their balconies after days of coronavirus lockdown in the biggest Chinese city with no clear end in sight.

A video circulating on social media shows people yelling from their windows after being confined to their homes for seven days in Zhongyuan Liangwancheng, one of the biggest residential compounds in the city.

The man who filmed the video can be heard saying that within five minutes, the entire area was screaming.

"If it continues to be like this, I can tell you, something will go wrong," he said.

Earlier in the month, residents of the Top of City compound in Jing'an district also had a similar spontaneous screaming session.

A resident who did not want to be named told the Associated Press the screaming helps with the boredom of being locked up.

"Isolation with no clear end in sight is stressful," he said.

In Shanghai, more than 2,00,000 cases but no deaths have been reported in the latest wave of coronavirus infections which prompted the shutdown starting March 28.

The government eased restrictions by announcing residents of areas with no cases for at least two weeks can leave their homes starting Tuesday.

It said they could go to any other area that also had no new cases during that time but were urged to stay home when possible.

Such 'prevention areas' have about 4.8 million people, The Paper reported, citing city officials. It said all but 500,000 of those were in less densely crowded suburbs.

An additional 1.8 million people in 'control areas' with no new cases in the past week are allowed out but can't leave their neighborhoods, the report said.

Another 15 million people in “quarantine areas” that have had infections in the past week still are barred from leaving their homes.

The report gave no indication of the status of the remaining 3.4 million people in the official population.
