Shanghai reported its first fatalities from the current Covid-19 wave on April 18, 2022. All three patients who died were over the age of 85 and unvaccinated. The first batch of deaths reported from the latest wave came as the city’s residents continue to cope with stringent measures imposed by the city. Among them is Yu Beibei, who tested positive for Covid-19 on April 2. Although her symptoms cleared up after a few days, she was separated from her family and sent to a makeshift hospital, one of over a 100 created in Shanghai to combat the biggest wave of Covid-19 to hit the city. Yu says most people have complained about the dirty bathrooms, the lack of hot showers, and the constant indoor lighting, making it difficult to sleep at night.
