U.S. Marines Stationed in Shanghai Struggling for Food Due to Destructive “Zero-COVID” Lockdown


The CCP’s brutal “Zero-COVID” lockdown is starving Shanghai residents.

Some citizens have jumped to their deaths in desperation after being quarantined inside their homes for weeks at a time with scarce resources.

The self-inflicted resource shortage is even impacting U.S. Marines at the U.S. consulate in Shanghai.

Colleagues had to help seven Marines who were running out of fresh food due to the severe lockdowns.

Per Reuters:

Shanghai has been hit by food shortages as the citywide lockdown puts pressure on delivery staff amid surging COVID-19 numbers.

A U.S. consulate employee issued a plea on the WeChat platform on Tuesday for staff to spare some food for the Marines. He was not acting in an official capacity, a person with knowledge of the matter said.

“Marines have depleted their food and can no longer get delivery,” the employee told colleagues living in Shanghai.

The Marines only had vacuum-sealed rations left, the employee said in the message, seen by Reuters and verified by two people.

“I know we are all running short on supplies. If you can spare a meal’s worth or two for 7 extra mouths, they’d be very appreciative,” the employee said.

Staff responded with supplies, a person said in a later message, adding: “The marines are beyond thankful.”

Recent footage from Shanghai showed thousands of residents screaming from their apartments due to starvation from strict quarantines.
