SHOCKING footage shows the moment hazmat-clad authorities dragged a man out of his home after he refused to go to a quarantine camp.
China’s draconian lockdowns have sparked protests in several cities as thousands hit back at Xi Jinping’s tough zero-Covid policy.
A clip shared on social media shows a man crying out as he wrestles with officials who seem to have entered his home in China‘s Zhejiang province.
The two lockdown enforcers – known as “Da Bai” or Big Whites on account of their uniforms – shout “put the mask on”.
They then try to grab hold of him and he tries to cling to a sofa.
He yells: “Are you crazy? Don’t push me.”

Furious residents blamed the deaths on the Covid lockdown as they said they were only allowed to leave home for short periods each day and the timing was strictly controlled by authorities.
