Covid In China: An ingenious woman in China found a way to circumvent rules that limit eating on trains in the country.

Since the start of the pandemic, China has implemented a strict zero-Covid policy which has disrupted the lives of residents owing to snap lockdowns, mass testing and stringent rules. Even though the world has moved to living-with-Covid, China is still following policies which have impacted the country's economy and supply chains to restrict the spread of the virus.

“While it is not ideal to eat inside subway trains. She isolated herself from other people by wrapping herself in a plastic bag,” he added.

The woman had to resort to eating the banana in a plastic bag as consuming food is prohibited on subway trains in China.

China has doubled down on its zero-Covid policy as president Xi Jinping praised the policy signaling that there will be no immediate change in it.
