'We all have to make sacrifices now': first-hand report from Shanghai

The lockdown in Shanghai has been extended indefinitely. "Shanghai's streets are completely deserted for the first time. A frightening scene," says Zhang Xinran. The 28-year-old employee of an advertising agency describes chaotic conditions inside housing complexes, but also explains that the population continues to support the government's zero-covid policy. China.Table shares her insights below.
I live in the Puxi district. There has already been one positive case in my building. I've been at home for almost a week straight now. It's boring, I'd like to get out again, go to work or do something. But these are luxury problems when you think of all the people who have been infected and are now in special isolation centers. Shanghai's streets are completely deserted for the first time ever. Media are showing drone videos of famous places like the Bund and Nanjing East Road. A frightening scenery.
