Shanghai: men in hazmat suits roam the streets beating pets to death
See the CNN video by clicking on this link (opens new tab). China's zero-tolerance policy on Covid-19 is having disastrous consequences with citizens becoming utterly desperate. The CNN report shows a man in a white hazmat suit beating a corgi to death on the street. It is unbelievable but it is not the first time pandemic officials in China have done this. A disregard for decency and common sense is very evident. They have a 100% lockdown for the Omicron variant which has symptoms no worse than a cold!

In Britain we regard it as a cold and ignore it. And yet in China they are killing pets over it. No discussion with anyone. No attempt it seems to find the owner and give them a chance to go home with the pet. They just go up to the dog or cat and kill them it appears, judging by this video. The video is a compilation of videos and some of these videos have gone viral. I am unsurprised as the incidents are shocking.

I have expanded on this story. It really is a story is state-sanctioned animal cruelty:
What happened to this corgi is potentially happening to a lot of other pets in Shanghai. In this instance, as I understand it, the owner tested positive for the Omicron variant of Covid-19 and under the rules of Shanghai and perhaps wider China, they had to go into quarantine. She was carted off to quarantine and the dog was taken out into the street and killed with a shovel. Shanghai residents are now taking steps to avoid this kind of incident. We don't know how many pets have been killed in this way. But in Britain, as mentioned, we don't see Omicron Covid-19 as a threat to the health of the nation. We treat it as a cold.
