A 95-year-old grandma in Shanghai single-handedly fought off six men from resisting being taken for quarantine under China’s zero covid policy.

In the last few days, videos circulating online show one older woman fighting off six police officers dressed in white protective suits with a long stick in resisting being taken to a quarantine centre.

It is said the neighbourhood committee reported to the Police after seeing the woman rambling around despite being tested positive.

The Police had to give up taking her after she energetically fought off the police officers with a stick in her hand.

The medical worker then isolated her in an enclosed space onsite surrounded by iron plates to prevent her from spreading the virus to others.

Last week, Shanghai announced a policy of “isolate whoever needs to be isolated,” aiming to take every single positive person for centralised quarantine as an effort to achieve its zero covid sooner. Many people were forcibly sent to unqualified makeshift hospitals, including many elderly with chronic diseases.
