Chinese government raids dozens of homes at midnight, busses hundreds to “quarantine camps”

The Sun is reporting that “CHINESE authorities reportedly raided dozens of homes in the middle of the night and forced people onto buses to quarantine camps under the world’s strictest lockdown.” The Chinese government claims it is controlling one of its worst outbreaks in a single city since the beginning.

“The 13 million people living in the northern city of Xian have been banned from leaving their homes – even for essential reasons like buying food.”

“It is not known exactly how many people were ordered to leave during the midnight eviction, but one person reported seeing 30 buses, while another claimed up to a thousand people were moved, BBC News reports.”
“[S]tarving residents have been begging for food on social media.”

“State-owned newspaper Global Times reported there was a shortage of deliverymen as many were under quarantine themselves.”
