Lockdown restrictions in Shanghai have led to a massive crowding of stores to stock up on essential goods.

The closure imposed in Shanghai after a new outbreak of the Corona virus, caused thousands of people to scramble to stock up on essentials, while others are quarantining in their offices to ensure business continues.

After weeks of sporadic shutdowns in some communities, the city of 25 million has now been split in two.

Earlier this week, those living in the eastern half of Shanghai were asked to stay at home, and the western half is set to go into lockdown on Friday.

The move comes as the city suffers from a spike in omicron cases.
