This aspect really worries me. I would have thought protocols would be established to continue food and water deliveries to supermarkets and or collection points, army delivering water, emergency food services to vulnerable elderly etc. Probably there are a small number of things on a local initiative level. There seems to be not much happening on a major scale and a lot of experiences like your uncle's with not much information getting to them.
apparently 56m people are under lockdown so food / water / govt resources are running very thin at the moment.. a lot of food and water resource from cities not in lockdown are being redirected which is also causing food / water and govt personal scarcity in non quarantined cities
A lot of doctors and nurses are also being shipped out causing yet more shortages in their own cities "official" numbers have said 15 healthcare workers have now been infected and one confirmed death of a doctor.
Govt there have released a real time app that can shows "official numbers" of infected people which can be broken down to province / city / area to deter people from staying away or indoor from places most effected
I have 4 family members in China and they had said the CCP have extended the Chinese new years holiday period to keep people at home and out of public places..
now this part is an absolute rumor but I find it plausible.. WHO has had pressure put on it to down play the severity along the CCP only revealing bits of info to try and protect global stock markets.. consumer goods from the likes of apple and nike have already had a 2% slump.. I was hesitant in typing this but I really hope thats not the case..
