College students are trapped in Shanghai, Chengdu, Sanya for half a year
2022-08-08: [Article Link] The news came in sleep.
On 6 August, at 3.52 a.m., a notice was issued by Sanya: from 6 a.m. on 6 August 2022, temporary general static management was introduced throughout the city, the movement of people was restricted on a city-wide basis and urban public transport was suspended.
Many visitors woke up in the morning and were told that they had checked out and went to the airport on an emergency basis. However, some had been persuaded to return at the hotel stand, some had been blocked on the highway and could not get through, some had been waiting for hours at the airport to be told that the flight had been cancelled, others had not been able to leave the port of the sea, and others had already been seated in the seat of the plane but had been driven off the plane. Soon, all the flights involving Sanya will be cancelled, and the departures will have to be reversed or even left empty.
According to reports, there are approximately 80,000 passengers in Sanya, from Shanghai, the north-east and the U.S., among others. They have had several months of closed and relaxed tourists, students in summer research projects, newly married couples taking wedding pictures, honeymooning, and family and friends travelling with their children... But now everything has been put on hold. The daily figure contacted a few stranded passengers and found that they were worried about a lot of things: “free hotel” “50% discount” is not available to everyone, and how are tens of thousands of expenses borne? The number of confirmed cases has been increasing, and can we go home after the seven-day static period? What if the business people are worried about the backlog of goods in their hands as a result of isolation? Here are their accounts.

"We were almost able to leave, but they drove us off the plane."
Wheat, about three years in high school, taking part in a summer research project.
On the morning of August 6, we arrived at the airport at 6:30, almost five hours earlier than we took off. The flight was smooth, the security check was smooth, and the plane was on board. We didn't feel right until we sat in the seat for more than ten minutes and the plane didn't fly.
Shortly after, the radio said, "The plane can't take off for a while, and the captain's coordinating." At the time, we still had a glimmer of hope that we might be able to fly.
I don't know, around 11:30, the radio said, "Airplane canceled," and let us off the plane. But nobody moved, everybody was upset, they were restless, they didn't know where to get off the plane. Intermediary broadcasts have been broadcast several times, saying that “it will take responsibility for transportation and assist in arranging hotels”, but because it is only “assistance”, there is no precise guarantee, and everyone is not convinced and is still afraid to move. It was only at 1.49 p.m. that the police got on the plane and said, “Let's arrange a free hotel in Sanya Bay”, so that everyone was sure that they could be accommodated and left the plane.
The airport was particularly messy, and many people were at the door. We had 24 hours of nucleic acid expired, and we wanted to make a nucleic acid at the airport first, and we looked at the nucleic acid stand being dismantled, and I don't know why. It felt like everyone around us had no direction but to follow people.
We're all students, and we don't have parents around for the first time. It's not until we get into the hotel, we get into the room, we find it's okay. We're free, and we can go straight to the hotel and restaurant.
We're here with three of our classmates, and we've just completed our second year in high school, and we're here to attend a summer camp on Sanya Se Island for a natural research project, where awards can be given and where we can go to school. We arrived in late July and stayed in the West Island until the fourth night, when the outbreak broke out, and when the West Island landscape was closed, we had to leave until night after night to pack up and leave in the morning the following morning. Some of the students who went to summer camp together, in all the provinces, bought tickets early when they looked at the airport screens and took off regularly at around 6 and 8 o'clock. There are other classmates who took the train earlier, bought tickets earlier, and took off successfully. We're just a little short between "flyable" and "no fly" flights, and we're stuck here. Now, there's only a dozen of us left, and we're all here, and our team leader, specializing in the high-speed train from the mouth of the sea, is here to stay with us. Parents aren't around, and they're worried we don't have a place to stay. When I was on the plane, I was talking to my parents about WeChat, telling them what was going on, and then they were relieved to know that we were in the hotel.
We're going to be in high school, and we have a lot of vacation work, and we're going to be in the room for the next few days, and yesterday, the schoolteachers sent word in the crowd that “if we've been to Sanya, we need to report to the school”. Now, we don't have much to spend on eating and living. The most worrying thing is the beginning of school, the beginning of high school, the beginning of school, we can't go to school, and we're more worried about the impact and progress.
The trip to the island would have been a pleasure had it not been for his flight and his stay in Sanya.
On August 7, 2022, Hainan Sanya, citizens are testing for full-scale nucleic acid.
"I didn't think there would be a simultaneous outbreak between Sanya and U."
Wang Gogo, businessman, bring family to visit.
On July 31, I came to Sanya with my mother and my 5-year-old son. Although I heard about Sanya on the second and so on, it didn't feel very serious, and I bought a 6th ticket back on the South China Ship APP that night. I arrived on Phoenix Island on the fourth, and I decided to go home after a hotel.
I didn't realize that I had an outbreak, that my neighborhood was classified as a high-risk area, and that my health code had turned yellow. I contacted the street over there, and I said we could go back, but I needed to be isolated. I was worried that I wanted to get back on a plane.
I found that the flight was cancelled by force on 5th and texted me that there was no flight for 5-7 days, that there was only 8 and I had to change it to 8. I read the news that tens of thousands of people were left in Sanya, but air tickets would never be cheap if they could leave, and I was afraid that the repurchase would be more expensive, so I would have to change to number 14. The fare is actually rising. Economic Unit 1, probably 1,000 Yuan, and the cheapest, at 1800 Yuan, went up to $67,000 in first class, with virtually no discounted tickets, all full-cost tickets.
I live in a hotel on Phoenix, with a house price close to 900 Yuan for one night. When they spoke with hotel staff, they said that they had not received half-priced redhead documents for the time being, and even if they actually implemented the half-price policy they said on the Internet, it was half-priced at the market price, not the price we saw on the third-party platform. The hotel has a market price of more than 2,000, but it's more expensive than it is now. There are more than 270 rooms in the hotel, and now there are about 20 or 30 families. Let's add a group, we see half the price of the hotel on the Internet, we discuss it in the group, and the Ethel Masters ask him why the rest of the hotel prices have been reduced, and we don't. We're in a hotel every day. You want to watch TV, you have to charge 10 dollars for 12 hours, 24 hours at a time. Not only that, as a five-star hotel, there's no laundry room, and it's not easy.
Consumption is high, there are no stores on the island, and no takeout can be ordered on the afternoon of 6th, but the takeout can't be eaten every day, probably because the hotel is located on the island, many stores have 150 Yuan, and the cost of distribution costs between $12 and $15. Sometimes I just want to eat some fruit, and I have to get enough to eat, and I can't finish a meal. I order it every day for the first few days, and it costs about $5,600 a day. Now that the takeout is off, we can only eat the hotel canteen, breakfast is 59 Yuan, lunch is 88 Yuan, and one day we'll have to eat and live for thousands of dollars. Being stuck on the island is expensive and unfavorable, and I have booked an off-island hotel with a market price of about 800, which is now half price, just over 400. But the only problem is that I can't get through, traffic control around here, drops and everything, and I tried to call the mayor's hotline, and I did it for half a day, and I said I couldn't help with the hotel, but I could find a car. Every day I live here gives me a sense of insecurity, and the kid's school starts on September 1st, and we're going back in isolation for at least 14 days. I do business in Eu, I have orders to deal with, I work on computers, and there's no computer here. My product might miss this season, and it's stuck in my hand. I thought I'd be back in five or six days, and I didn't think that Sanya and Yiu would have erupted at the same time. Now if we could just go back, even if we were to be isolated, we'd have something to look forward to.
On July 25th, Sanya, before the outbreak, tourists enjoyed the beach view.
“I have been sealed in Shanghai for three months, in Chengdu for two months, and in Sanya again.”
Wen, Shanghai college student, traveling with friends to celebrate.
I was traveling with my friends, and on July 28, we went to the mouth of the sea, then to Vanning, Sanya on the 31st. It was intended to take the 12 p.m. aircraft back to Chengdu on 4th, but in the early hours of the morning, Sanya introduced a new policy requiring two nucleic acids within 48 hours, all of which would have to produce results before entering the airport lobby. We lost the nucleic acid once, and it was too late to do it again. The hotel front desk said that 20 minutes ago, someone just came back from the airport and, like us, couldn't leave. We can't do that, we can only sign number six. But what's the problem, the hotel price is too expensive, it's 1300 Yuan a night, it's up every day, it's already 2,000 Yuan, even half price, and it's expensive, and we're going to go somewhere else. My mother had a friend in Sanya Kai-Hu, who said, "At least 40 minutes we'll be able to stay in the room," and we immediately called a droplet and went to the Bay of Aaron. There's a lot of people on the way, and it feels like everybody's running that way, and there's a traffic jam for over two hours, and the police are at the Yalong Bay gate, and a car checks to see if you're a 24-hour nucleic acid. Unfortunately, the team is too long, it's just a few minutes away from getting on our way. No way, we'll have to go around and make a nucleic acid in the hospital next to us for a while. Thanks to the mother's love, the boss kept the room for over $300 a night, two days, we made the nucleic acid every day to be ready, and then at 10 p.m. on the fifth, I got a call from the airline, saying, "The flight needs to be cancelled," and again, it didn't fly. We live in the village of Bo, where there are a lot of red people living. The canteen is closed and the takeout can only be delivered to the village entrance. It's easy to make a nucleic acid, and there's a nucleic acid stand for a few minutes, but it's only 7 a.m. to 11.30 a.m., and there's a lot of people in line, one hour each time.
It's not the first time I've been isolated from my home. When I started school on March 5, the plane arrived, and I thought it would be over soon, and one was closed for three months. Four people, who were unable to leave their dormitories, either had a specific meal delivered to the first floor, or had two tickets to the cafeteria, where they were waiting to get it back in line, and the carrots and the purple kalebs were throwing up every day. After Shanghai was unsealed, I left early, and a number of flights were cancelled, followed by 14 hours of high iron and a one-night break in the middle of the journey to Sichuan Ya'an's house. I've had a lot of experience with these quarantines. First of all, we've got to hoard the stock market on the sixth, we've got a lot of people in the stock market, and the boss says, "The next day will be no more." Everyone's buying the shelf. We couldn't do the food, we all bought bread, biscuits, and noodles, and we bought the food for the next five or six days. And the second thing was not so panicy, and my friend was in isolation for the first time, and she was panicking, thinking how to get out of here, on a high train, in a boat or in a car, and I kept plaguing her, telling her, don't worry. I came to Sanya this time, actually for my birthday on August 1. I like the beach, and I'm good at swimming. I travel to Sanya almost every summer, sometimes with my parents, sometimes with my friends, and then on my high school graduation trip. But after this experience, I don't want to come back to Sanya anymore.

"As the Shanghai epidemic has not reached Xinjiang, it may not be possible to do so now."
Li Jing, Shanghai citizen, travel to Sanya
I spent most of this year in isolation. I was in the computer business in Shanghai, and on March 11, I made a call-out decision to take a break and travel to Xinjiang. When I unsealed, I thought that I had plenty of time to pick a place that did not need isolation, and there was a sea to transition to Xinjiang. At that point, only Sanya met that condition, and I booked a plane to Sanya at 10 p.m. on 4 July, and a place in the sky, next to the sea, 1,500 Yuan a month. There's a lot of tourists from Shanghai, just like me, trying to get some air out of the epidemic, and I'm on a flight, about 200 seats, and I feel like the whole plane's full. I hit a taxi when I landed, and the driver learned that I was from Shanghai, and I was sighing that a lot of Shanghaiers had arrived. Moreover, the tickets from Shanghai to Sanya have skyrocketed, and in April and May, I think it's only about 500, and in July it's more than 2,000. Upon arrival, two tests in three days, you'll be completely free to travel. Triya Bay, deer back to the scenery area, back to the sea, I played it all over. And we met a girl who lived in the same hotel as me for a week, and we went to the sea every day to watch the sunrise, to watch the sunset on the beach, and it felt different and beautiful from day to day. On July 23, I bought a train ticket to Xinjiang on August 6 for a total of 63 hours, which I had to make in Chengzhou. It was worth it to think of the long-awaited sights of Lake Seriaki and the Monopoly Road as soon as Xinjiang arrived.
On August 4, I put my train ticket to Xinjiang on a social platform, looking for a little partner. I didn't expect that overnight, my region would become a high-risk area.
On the morning of August 5, at 9 a.m., I was going down to get nucleic acid, and I found that the door below was locked in the chain and I couldn't get out, and then asked the landlord's aunt to find out that there was an anomaly in the test tubes on the second floor of my building, but it had not been diagnosed. And I had a glimmer of hope, and in the afternoon, I learned that the man had been diagnosed positive. The landlord's aunt asked me to report identification information and contact details, and each tenant was also given supplies — four bags of noodles, two yolk pies, four ham sausages and two bottles of milk. A familiar process, a familiar material. I dropped my train ticket to Xinjiang and realized that I'm going to be living in isolation again.
After not reaching Xinjiang because of the Shanghai epidemic, at least there were no bookings at the time, and this time it was a deep sense of frustration that this year might not be the year for travel.
There's not a few of them like me. I live in this house with four passengers, two middle-aged people, a man and a woman, who came here from Changchun to do business, and they were locked up for two months, not for a few days, before they started doing business and were isolated again.
When I was isolated in Shanghai, I lived in places where there were plenty of infrastructure, such as dishes, computers, to cook my own food and play games when I was bored. In Sanya, I had no choice but to send supplies. But there's not much to send, and my regional takeout is not going to support the delivery, and I'm going to save it. I didn't eat breakfast the second day of isolation, I made a bag of face with a ham intestines at noon, and I made it at night without having ham intestines. From 0000 hours on August 4th, Sanya entered regional control and sold empty vegetables in a supermarket.
The only good thing is that I live in this room and see the sea view and the sunset, but I can't see anything these two days.
My family doesn't even know I'm in Sanya, they don't even know I'm resigning. I don't know how long it's gonna take to be sealed, the rent's coming, and I don't know how the price will change.
I'll still go to Xinjiang if my economic conditions allow it to be lifted. If I don't have enough money, I'll have to go back to Shanghai. Take a step, because there are really too many uncertainties now.
“I'm afraid my nine price won't pay, and I'm afraid I'm going to have to apply for cancellation of the second examination.”
Small fish, associate graduate students, participating in scientific research projects
Upon arrival, on 5 July, I went to a research institute in Sanya Jiyang District to study and plan to leave Sanya on 5 August and return to Guangdong for a third nine-priced vaccine.
Just as I packed my bags the night before I left, the condos informed me that those who left Sanya on a high iron would need to do nucleic acid twice in 48 hours and two times more than 24 hours apart. I did nucleic acid once in the morning on the 4th, which means I need to do it again.
Early in the morning, I made another nucleic acid, and the evening shift at 8.50 p.m. came home, and I thought, as soon as the nucleic acid results came out, I took a bus to the sea entrance and went back to Guangdong. During this period, I updated my health treasure numerous times and waited until 7:30, when the district staff told us that if we left the district, we would not be able to go back. I was afraid to get to the station again, I couldn't return to the neighborhood, the hotel couldn't afford to stay, and the three classmates who lived in my dormitory didn't make it home. Starting in the afternoon of the fourth day, the restaurants, supermarkets, entertainment places around my place of residence were closed, and only two supermarkets were open three kilometres away. We went there every morning after the nucleic acid to buy some supplies, and I bought some eggs, noodles, and bread with a preservation period of more than three months. There has been no frenzy of buying and buying, and most people are still living in normal conditions, as if the epidemic were close to us and far away from us. Our research and living areas are separate, because of the sudden outbreak, my scientific studies are temporarily suspended and my travel to the research areas requires a special application for up to three hours. We're just living in a neighborhood where we're so bored every day, we want to study, but we're so quiet, and I'm afraid I can't afford a nine price, and I'm afraid I'm gonna have to cancel my second exam at my house. What worries me most is that I will not be able to attend school on time. On August 19, graduate students began their studies, and those who did not attend school after 10 days in their entry notices will be disqualified. At the moment, Sanya’s epidemic is too severe, and I think I can’t leave Sanya at the end of August. I called the college, and the teachers there asked me to wait until the school was notified, but I don’t know how many days, but I just have to wait. I read in the news that many Sanya hotels have increased their prices, that our rents have not been affected, and that we can stay as long as our health code is green. If you can't go back, you'll have to regulate yourself and stay here with a different mindset.
On 6 August, Hainan Sanya, the street of Maroon, was now out of space.
"The hotel is 1,000 a day, and if it's too long, we can't afford it."
Kyra, Chongqing mom, take the kids to summer camp.
We're eight adults, with seven children, and Sanya -- six mothers, two fathers, six families -- and they're going to surf summer camp, which is like their children's primary school trip, and they're very emotional, but junior high school goes to different schools and wants to hang out. We're Sanya from Number 3, ready to go to Number 7, and there's a case of Covid-19, but we can't retreat because of the summer camp, and there's an hour away from the Bay of the Sea. At first, it was normal that the children were surfing the sea for three days and day after day. On the fifth, we were starting to feel wrong, thinking about whether to go, but when we talked about it, it took a lot of luck, thinking that the Bay side was very well regulated and should not be affected.
As a result, the alarm clock rang at 7 a.m. in the morning, and I found that it was already under control. We bought a lot of flights, flew directly from Sanya to Chongqing, took off from the sea entrance, and every one was canceled. We also packed a car, tried to get to the airport, and we couldn't even get to the highway.
The kids know they can't go home, but they're starting to freak out, and my kids are making videos to Dad, and they're going to go to her room, and she's going to look at the dolls. Some of our parents, they come together, they're worried, they're affected, but in front of the kids, they can't affect them, so let's just think, "Come on, come on." Fortunately, our hotel will be able to continue, and it has been calculated on the basis of the lowest half-price for the journey, and an administrative room containing breakfast dinner, afternoon tea, is more than 1,000. Now, food and accommodation are settled, and some of the living items, such as a one-time washing, sanitary supplies, contact lenses and medicine, have stopped delivery, and I have bought them in the takeout and have not stopped for a while.
Our mothers, basically house life, two dads, and corporate management, are basically not affected. But the kids are about to go to junior high school, and when they get home, they have to go to remedial classes, and now they're just going to take an iPad course online, learn in the morning, play in the hotel in the afternoon, try to get as well as they can, so they can't fool around every day, otherwise they're wasted. The most worrying thing is the start-up that affects children. They're about to go to a new school, a new stage, one that may affect the pace of learning, and the other one, which may also affect their integration into the new environment. If they do not go to school because of the epidemic’s isolation, it must have had a big impact on their children, which is what worries me most.
The children will start school on September 1st, and I'll take it if we can leave before the 20th.
Now that we don't have a hotel, there's nothing more important than security. If we go out to the Bay, we don't get back to the hotel where we are, how do so many kids live? We just have to wait for the news, and that's the best way to do it.
