Chinese Woman Forced by Covid Lockdown To Stay At Her Blind Date’s House
A Chinese woman has been forced to say at her blind date’s house after a sudden lockdown in China.
This has forced her to stay in his house for days on end. The 30-year-old woman, known only by her surname Wang, went to meet her blind date for a home-cooked dinner on January 6 in her hometown of Zhengzhou, a city in central China getting trapped by the lockdown.
“I’m getting old now, my family introduced me to 10 matches,” she said in a video on social media. “The fifth date wanted to show off his cooking skills and invited me over to his house for dinner.”
Just after the meal, Wang was about head home when she found out the whole neighborhood had gone into a swift lockdown, she said.
The Chinese government usually seals off communities after Covid infections are detected among residents. Part of the country’s strict zero-Covid strategy to quickly stamp out local outbreaks. This usually involves mass testing and extensive quarantine.
Wang not being able to leave her date’s house for days has posted videos revealing her unexpected co-living experience on social media. She even shows her date cooking meals for her, sweeping the floor, and working on his laptop. The videos have quickly gone viral, with Wang’s encounter becoming a top trending topic on Weibo, China’s Twitter-like platform.
