Shanghai’s Elderly Covid Patients Have a Hard Time Coping With Centralized Quarantine
In the early hours of Tuesday, Zhiye’s 94-year-old grandmother was taken away from her home. “They pried open our door,” she said. Her uncle called her at 2.47 a.m. on Tuesday, but his voice was drowned out by the chaos at the other end.
Zhiye’s uncle, 74, was locked down in his home with her grandmother from the end of March due to Covid cases being found in their residential complex, Yichuan Sicun in Putuo district, Shanghai. On April 13, the two took antigen tests and both were positive. The next day, the neighborhood committee came to administer polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests, but no results have been reported since.
