Robotic Dog Is Blaring Covid-19 Warnings In Shanghai While People Starve From Lockdown


A recent breakout of Covid-19 cases in Shanghai China has sent the entire city into an authoritarian lockdown.

The city of Shanghai which has a population of around 26 million has turned into a complete ghost town as a result.

In some parts, police officers are not even roaming the street instead robotic dogs are on patrol.

Take a look:

Yesterday night, hundreds of Chinese residents of Shanghai started to yell out their windows in protest of being hungry, and as a result, officials ent a drone to silence the protestors.

Republic World had more on the story:

As COVID-19 cases continue to explode in Shanghai, China’s second-largest metropolis, millions of people have been confined at home under a sweeping lockdown. Food has become a topic of concern for many in the Chinese city. Most supermarkets in China have been instructed to remain closed, which has escalated the food shortage. According to SCMP, many residents are currently waking up at 6 a.m. in the hopes of ordering vegetables and meat online before supplies run out.

The rush to get fresh food has now become a part of normal life for Shanghai residents under lockdown, and due to this, a rap titled ‘Scrambling for Vegetables’ has become an internet hit with them in the last week, SCMP reported.

Furthermore, videos have been surfaced from some residential districts in Shanghai that feature people screaming, “we are starving to death, we haven’t eaten for a very long time”.

According to the Associated Press, on March 28, Shanghai’s 26 million residents had entered a two-stage lockdown, with citizens of the eastern Pudong region being able to leave their houses on Friday, while their western Puxi neighbours began their own four-day isolation phase on Sunday. Despite assurances, millions of people in Pudong remain restricted to their homes amid complaints about food supplies, medicine availability, as well as health services.

The robotic dogs are not just in Shanghai, they are in the United States too.

The company that made the robotic dog being used by the NYPD, is called Boston Dynamics and their full-scale robots are terrifying, take a look:

It appears all those science fiction movies about robots taking over were just predictive programming.
