The Chinese Communist Party’s “zero-COVID” policy is causing more and more funny and sad stories. Some places even require people to wear masks when eating.

NTDTV reported on October 2 that, a video posted on the internet shows Chinese elementary school students eating lunch in class without taking off their masks. In the video, the elementary school students are sitting in a classroom using the same utensils to eat.

Except for a very small number of students, others wear masks to eat. Every time they take a bite, they move the mask, put food in their mouths and then replace the mask. Students wearing masks to eat shows that this is clearly the “initiative” of the school.
