Good morning

In the morning of April 11, Ms. Wang from Yuhang District, Hangzhou, returned to her community and was injured by a security guard when showing her health code.

According to Ms. Wang, at 2 A.M. that day, she arrived at the south gate of the community by taxi. After she picked up her express delivery, a security guard on duty yelled at her claiming to check her green code. Ms. Wang told him not to take that tone with her as it was frightening. Then, the security guard began to swear at her, and she responded that she would complain about him and asked to check his work card.
Then security guard approached Ms. Wang, who immediately asked him to stay away a little. Per Ms. Wang, this infuriated the security guard, and then he punched her, which was the last thing she remembered. Later, Ms. Wang found herself lying on the ground, and she called the police.

After that, Ms. Wang was taken to the hospital by ambulance. As for the situation of the security guard, she was not very clear. As of now, no conclusion has been released over the matter.

In response, the manager of residential property said that theyve been waiting for the handling result from the police and would make compensation if it was necessary. Per the manager, although the surveillance videos recorded the incident but it is inconvenient to disclose the content, and all are subject to judicial identification.

Wuhan sees divorce rate soar after lockdown is lifted

Wuhan has reopened to see its divorce rate double, with family experts saying the rush for couples to separate is because of rising conflicts caused by the 70-day-long quarantine enforced in the central Chinese city.


Zhang Fujian, director of Wuhan Marriage and Family Committee said on Tuesday that the divorce rate in Wuhan has doubled from its level before the outbreak, as the divorce application procedure was suspended during the two-month lockdown.


"To my knowledge, one needs to wait for three to four days before applying for divorce at the local marriage administration because there are so many people applying," Zhang said, adding that this is the case at almost all marriage offices in Wuhan.


Zhang predicts the divorce rate will cool down in a month, partially because many are not receiving incomes during the pandemic and therefore cannot afford to pay for the costly divorce process.


"The more developed the economy, the more open-minded people are, so the divorce rate is high in big cities like Wuhan," he added.
