The video originally shared on Chinese social media shows the shanghai night skyline, with dozens of high-rise residential buildings visible.

Dozens of screaming voices can be heard spontaneously in the background, apparently from different places.

What looks like a searchlight is illuminated from one of the apartment buildings.

Other footage includes the sound of people screaming for food and medical attention.

Chinese authorities initially planned a phased lockdown of the eastern and western parts of the city on March 28.

But that measure was extended citywide with no scheduled end on April 5, as cases in Shanghai rose to record highs.

A record 21,000 positive cases were registered in the city on Friday as authorities ramped up a strict program of mass testing.

Some people have been completely barred from leaving their homes to get supplies for more than two weeks.

Insiders have accused the Chinese Communist Party of pursuing an incredibly strict zero-Covid policy that will keep millions in a near-permanent lockdown.

This was reported by a journalist in Shanghai who wished to remain anonymous France 24: “There are far, far more cases than at the peak in Wuhan [in 2020]. That’s extreme in numbers, but actually the cases are mostly Omicron.

“So the seriousness of the situation isn’t that bad, but the government wasn’t sure how far it would go.

“They still adhere to the zero Covid policy. They are using a 2020 method for the 2022 virus.”

Grocery delivery apps are completely out of print, pushing many to the limit.

Chinese government censors have removed videos and articles seen as critical of the lockdown, but that hasn’t stopped information from leaking.

Frustrated residents have complained to Chinese social media network Weibo about food shortages and chaotic lockdown measures.

One wrote: “No matter where you live, whether you have money or not, you have to think about what else to eat and how to buy things.”

Another asked in frustration, “Do you want to starve people to death in Baoshan?” referring to the Shanghai suburb.

Medical volunteers brought into the city to help in the fight against Covid have also reported food shortages.

In a video posted to Douyin, China’s TikTok-like platform, a young volunteer yells, “Are the supplies only for locals in Shanghai? As an outsider, I can volunteer, but why aren’t the goods and supplies assigned to us? “

On Sunday, Shanghai discharged more than 11,000 discharged Covid patients, with health officials demanding they be allowed to go home.

The government said another round of mass testing is being held, lifting some of the strictest measures in areas that have had no new cases in the past 14 days.

Zhao Lijian, a spokesman for China’s foreign ministry, defended the approach in Shanghai.

“It should be noted that China’s anti-epidemic policy is science-based and effective, and we are fully confident that Shanghai and other places in China will weather the new wave of the epidemic,” they said.
