A supermarket manager in Shanghai and her over 40 staff have been hunkering down inside the Carrefour store they work at for nearly three weeks, delivering more than 3,000 orders of groceries and essentials to locked-down residents every day. “Basically, there’s no time to rest,” said Carrefour branch manager Zhang Wei, who sleeps on her office floor and wakes up at 5am to start her day. Nearly all of the city’s 25 million residents have been locked in their homes since the start of April and officials say there’s still no end in sight and restrictions will remain in place. On April 20, 2022, 441 cases were reported outside quarantined areas, up from 390 a day earlier.
