95-Year-Old Woman Fights Off COVID Police
Writer Chang Che captured a photograph of a 95-year-old grandmother fending off six Chinese workers with her cane Tuesday.
Che posted a photograph to Twitter that shows six people in hazmat suits walking away from a civilian wielding a cane with the caption “I’ve never witnessed this level of badassery: 95-year old grandma in Shanghai tests positive for Covid. About to get sent away but fends off SIX workers in hazmats with her cane until they give up.”

Shortly after, Chinese authorities sealed the woman’s apartment with steel plates, which she later tore off so she could take a walk around the neighborhood. “The next day, after THREE more attempts, they finally get her to the quarantine camps… oh nvm… she jumped the wall…” he continued.
Che also shared a video of the woman defying those wearing the hazmat suit.

Chinese authorities have been forcing their way into the homes of individuals suspected of testing positive for COVID-19 and dragging them to quarantine camps. Many of those abducted by Chinese authorities are senior citizens.
China has implemented a “Zero Covid” policy and is trying to remove all COVID-positive individuals from their communities in an attempt to end the spread of the virus. Reports have suggested that authorities have taken seniors but left behind medication and required medical equipment.
