Food blogger details life in a makeshift Covid hospital in Shanghai

A week into her hospital stay, the 24/7 lighting began to have a detrimental effect on Zhuyi. Having trouble falling asleep, he used blankets to build a tent-like fort that shrouded his bed in darkness. “It looks like a refugee tent from afar, but it works,” he joked online.

Another problem faced by Zhuyi was the lack of sanitary facilities, unable to meet the demands of patients on site. As a result, the blogger only washed his hair every five days.

“There’s a 30-meter-long queue in front of some ice-cold water taps,” he wrote, before adding humorously: “Luckily I have short hair now because the water flow is finer than a wand.”
