Chinese woman stuck in blind date’s home by abrupt COVID lockdown | Coronavirus pandemic News

Parts of the central Chinese city of Zhengzhou were abruptly closed while the woman was having dinner at her residence.

When authorities in Zhengzhou abruptly shut down the central China city due to COVID-19 last week, a woman known only by her name, Wang, was having dinner — at the house of her blind date.

“After I arrived in Zhengzhou, the disease broke out and his community was put under lockdown and I couldn’t leave,” Wang told Shanghai-based outlet The Paper on Tuesday, adding that she had gone there on a week-long trip to meet. potential suitors.

“I’m getting older now, my family has introduced me to 10 matches…The fifth date wanted to show off his culinary skills and invited me to his house for dinner.”

Stuck at home, Wang began posting short videos documenting her daily life in the sudden shutdown. Clips have gone viral, showing her dating cooking for her meals, doing chores, and working on his laptop while she sleeps.

Related hashtags garnered more than six million views on the Twitter-like social networking site Weibo by Wednesday.

So far, it seems that romance hasn’t blossomed yet during their long history, according to Wang, who says she’s looking for a more talkative partner.

“Besides the fact that he’s dumb like a wooden mannequin, everything else [about him] Wang told the newspaper.

“Although his food was mediocre, he was still willing to cook, and I think it is a wonderful thing.”

But Wang, who has not revealed her age or the identity of the man in the videos, said the recent surge of interest online has prompted her to remove the videos.

“Friends called him and I think this definitely affected his life, so I’ve removed it now,” she said in a video posted on Tuesday and widely circulated in Chinese local media.

“Thank you everyone for your concern…I hope the outbreak ends soon and that my single sisters too find a relationship soon.”

More than 100 cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Zhengzhou since last week, as China struggles to contain multiple local outbreaks of Delta and Omicron variants.

A few cities, including Xi’an, have been locked down, leaving 14 million of its residents stranded in their homes. Other cities imposed limited quarantine on specific areas while others imposed mass testing, including Tianjin, another city of 14 million people.
