VIDEOS circulating online on Tuesday, October 4 reportedly show China’s zero-COVID policy police using machine guns to stop passengers from leaving the Xishuangbanna airport in Yunnan Province.

The video shared online by Twitter user @songpingpang with the caption: “Chinese ‘zero-COVID policy’ police officers using machine guns to suppress passengers to stop them leaving the Xishuangbanna airport in Yunnan Province today,” has amassed thousands of views and comments.

The unverified footage shows people lining up in the airport with guards carrying machine guns while dressed in full protective Covid gear.

According to reports, people were heard screaming “are you gonna kill us all?”

Comments flooded social media after the video began going viral.

“It’s never about your health, over there or here,” one person wrote.

“Never forget there are people in influential positions here who think China’s “zero Covid” model is what we should be doing here,” another said.

Jesse Kelly wrote: “Every Democrat governor in America would have done the same thing without hesitation if it wasn’t for the 2nd Amendment. You’d do well to remember that.”

While another said: “This policy is not only barbaric, it is also so stupid.”

The news machine gun carrying Covid controls in China comes after citizens in Shenzhen were reportedly been forced to sleep on the streets after their QR codes prevented entry to their apartments.

On Tuesday, September 6, the news of China’s citizens forced to sleep on the streets after their QR codes locked them out of their homes was shared on Twitter:

“CHINA – Numerous reports coming through of citizens having to sleep on the streets in Shenzhen because they missed PCR tests and QR codes showing red, prevented them from entering their apartment.”

      As someone who was there, this isn’t accurate… People could leave whenever they wanted, in fact the government was actually waiting for people to leave voluntarily….
