In a surprising turn of events, IKEA shoppers in Shanghai found themselves entangled in a scuffle with security guards who attempted to confine them within the store, Your Content has learned.

The incident unfolded after it was discovered that a single customer had come into contact with an individual who tested positive for Covid-19. As a precautionary measure, the Xuhui district store’s security promptly initiated a lockdown, aiming to keep the shoppers inside.

The decision to close the doors came despite no positive cases being identified among the shoppers present. However, local authorities emphasized the importance of safety protocols and swiftly enforced the closure.

It is worth noting that earlier this year, tens of millions of Chinese citizens faced similar lockdown measures, as reported by NewsWeek.
