Social media videos show officials throwing food in Shanghai lockdown

Images have emerged of Chinese officials dumping bags of fresh vegetables that had been donated to Shanghai amid food shortages in the city due to COVID-19 lockdowns.

Shanghai, which is home to some 26 million people, has been under strict lockdown conditions for three weeks.

The Chinese government claimed that the food rotted in transit and was withdrawn by the donor.

All COVID-19 cases and close contacts in Shanghai are currently required to go to government-designated quarantine facilities, without exception.
