Angry crowds rioted near the Chinese city of Wuhan after the region’s two-month coronavirus lockdown was lifted but residents were told they could not travel elsewhere in China.

Shocking footage showed a mob overturning a police van on a bridge linking Wuhan, which is the capital of Hubei Province, and neighbouring Jiangxi.

The article goes on to state the following:

The violent scenes came despite a move by the authorities on Saturday to allow people into Wuhan from elsewhere in the country for the first time since coronavirus emerged in the city in late December last year.

Badiucao, a political artist and activist from China who lives in Australia, tweeted:

“Riot outbreaks on border bridge between Hubei and Jiangxi in China today. [T]he conflict starts due to police from different provinces fighting for jurisdiction on checking #COVID19

“It escalates into mess riot which blocked whole bridge.
more vids coming pretty intense how it eventually evolves to this mess is still covered. [R]umor says it started because Jiangxi police dont want to lift the border to Hubei province where most #COVID19 infection reported. No one trust official numbers even for police[.]”

“[I] am not saying this a revolution or protest. But it is the closest thing u can find in China now. After so many weeks of desperate lock down due to the #COVID2019 everyone has been pushed to [their] limit.

“[I]ts about exploding. people r chanting 湖北加油 “Hibei fight on” marching towards military riot police from Jiangxi side of the bridge.
A lot said Jiangxi police dont want to lift lockdown on Hibei side due to intrust of #COVID2019 has been under control in Hubei province.”

“[A]ngry people from Hubei province try to rock over the riot police van on the border bridge afrer weeks of brutal lockdown.

“No one trust zero infection, not even local gov and police[.]”
