“There is no longer a nutritional supply for those who are critically ill,” said one man, requesting to remain anonymous, whose said his father is only given potassium supplements with no fruit or vegetables.
“My father had a heart attack, which led to a lung infection,” the man added.
Earlier in the week China’s communist leaders announced that they were sending out 10,000 health-care workers, including 2,000 soldiers, to help with mass-testing in an effort to get the COVID outbreak under control, said The Hill.

One comment about the breakout of citizens in the search for food asked “Where are the tanks?” in reference to military coercion common in China.
In reply, the same source that supplied the video of the breakout showed a video of tanks being brought in to apparently help control the citizenry in an unnamed location.
