After a period of tension because of the prolonged blockade as a measure to prevent the epidemic, the Chinese people have begun to revolt and find their own freedom. The "self-unlocking" movement has broken out in many places with certain achievements.

After two months of the extremely harsh blockade in Shanghai, with enough suffering from the blockade and control, people in many places rebelled. The residents of the Huixianju community in Xuhui district have announced that they will "remove the blockade themselves". There is information on the China's Weibo network that many other residences in Xuhui and Jing'an districts have started to follow in the footsteps of this movement.
