According to reports, authorities in the Chinese province of Hubei have sent residents who were on the streets during the coronavirus outbreak to “re-education camps.”
A video shows the residents who were studying in a room guarded by anti-corona virus officers in one of the centers last Saturday in Huangshi, Hubei province in central China.
It is said that detainees must pass exams on coronavirus rules and sign an agreement before being released. They were punished because “they were outside without special reasons.”
