"A City of 13,000,000 Is Now a Ghost Town: Shenzhen, China", from an (Australian) visitor's perspective


A City of 13,000,000 Is Now a Ghost Town: Shenzhen, China”:  Ollie, from the Barrett Channel (is this from Australia?) walks around three areas of Shenzhen, across from Hong Kong, including the tech avenue, and then Coco Park.

The channel seems to have many presenters.  This was a young white man in his early 20s who stands out when he walks around.


Everyone wears a mask, even outside, as the streets and shops are deserted.  Occasionally a cop stops him to take his temperature from a distance.  It’s not accurate.  You have to go through security to get on the Metro.
  
The city looks lie a science-fiction metropolis.  There is plenty of fresh food in the grocery stores, and no one in them.
