Separated from his parents, an infected 4-year-old highlights the human cost of China’s zero-Covid policy

Covered from head to toe in a white hazmat suit, a small child carrying a backpack half the size of his body toddles down a hospital corridor and arrives at a CT scan room — all by himself.
“A 4-year-old boy has been infected (with Covid-19), unfortunately,” a caption in the video reads. “No accompanying parents. Going to quarantine alone.”
The scene, captured by a nurse at a quarantine hospital in the city of Putian, the epicenter of China’s latest Delta variant outbreak, gripped millions of people when it went viral on Chinese social media this week.
