Shanghai Lockdown Stops Locals From Catching Flight

Some areas in Shanghai have been put back under lockdown in recent days. Under those orders, authorities quickly shut down certain neighborhoods, sometimes without informing the residents ahead of time. A video published on Chinese social media caught a Western woman and a Chinese man from Shanghai on camera. The two were in a rush to get to the airport and catch a flight. But the entrance to the neighborhood was locked, and no one on-site could open the door.
