The Wu Chun family’s first month as Chinese residents did not start as smoothly as they hoped, as they arrived in Shanghai just as the government announced a total lockdown.

On 10 April, the former Fahrenheit member posted several photos from the family’s lockdown situation, including one photo of him exercising on the balcony, movie night with the family, and preparing their meal from the ration given by the district government.

“330 moved to Shanghai and started home isolation on 1 April. Fortunately, there were many friends who helped enthusiastically and there are packages issued by the government. What is even more touching is that the frontliners who have worked hard day and night to contribute to us. I am full of gratitude,” he wrote.

Wu Chun also has a positive spin on the situation, saying that they are currently witnessing history.

“During this difficult time, we should be more tolerant and patient. Neighbours should take care of each other, especially the elderly at home… In fact, you can live a fulfilling life in isolation at home. There are always ways to do something that makes life more meaningful. Do housework to make your home more perfect, use the existing ingredients to make delicious food, exercise more in the sun, and read books and watch motivational videos to improve yourself. This is a chance to spend good quality time with the family,” he said.

Shanghai is currently entering its third week of strict lockdown as part of China’s battle to contain its biggest COVID-19 outbreak, with a new record of more than 26,000 cases in 24 hours.
