Vlogger Explains Life In Major Chinese City Under Coronavirus Restrictions
The footage was shot on March 15, so things have probably changed quite dramatically by this point - such is the fast-paced nature of the world's response to this unique situation - but nonetheless makes for fascinating watching.
In the video, the vlogger explains how the shops that were on complete shutdown a matter of weeks ago have now reopened and begun to trade again, albeit under strict restrictions.
Over the course of 10 minutes, he visits a supermarket and shows how relative normality has been restored to China, which was the initial epicentre of the pandemic.
Despite crowds of shoppers being allowed to mingle with one another in public spaces, the video documents how there are large public screens to remind citizens of how to wash their hands, and the importance of remembering to do so.
He explains how each person must have their own documentation regarding when they last had their temperature checked, to prove that they are not showing symptoms of the virus.

This is - he states during the film - 'commonplace procedure' since the virus took hold several months ago.
As well as that, the shops all bear notices explaining that face masks must be worn at all times when out in public.
Makes sense, really.
He said: "I have witnessed the development of COVID-19 in China and all across the world, this is my experience coming out of it."
Now that things are starting to go back to the way they were, the vlogger reflects on how the Chinese state had introduced 'really draconian measures and it worked'.
During the times that these measures were implemented, he also said that workers were concerned about whether they would be able to go to work and get paid.
That's quite similar to what some will be experiencing now.
He does offer some valuable advice for us to bear in mind just now. He advised people under similar circumstances: "Don't panic, be prepared and take extreme precautions that are available."
That sounds like some pretty decent advice.
It's okay to not panic.
