Economic Observer Network reporter Zhang Ying On the evening of December 29, Zhu Yue adjusted three alarm clocks to wait for the three fresh food platforms to grab some food at Xinshi, but in the end nothing was found. On Weibo, “It is difficult to buy food in Xi’an” rushed into hot searches, and many citizens were worried about eating, just like Zhu Yue.

Since the closed management of Xi’an on the 23rd, it is stipulated that one person in each household can go out to purchase supplies every two days, but on the 27th, the prevention and control measures are upgraded, and citizens other than epidemic prevention personnel are not allowed to go out. After the upgrade, many citizens found that all the shops around the community were closed, and the online group-buying platforms of major communities were also robbed.

At the same time, stricter bans have also sealed many urban logistics practitioners at home. A fresh food distributor told the Economic Observer that since the 27th, all his fleets have been suspended, and he is currently applying for a pass from the Anti-epidemic Office.

On the 29th, Xi’an’s government responded that there was indeed a situation of low employee attendance and difficulties in logistics and distribution. The company will try its best to help solve the problem of normal employment of employees and issue passes for vehicles that guarantee supplies for daily life.

As of press time, there are still citizens waiting for food on an empty stomach.

A citizen in the Jiahuifang block of the high-tech zone only ate a piece of bread to satisfy his hunger on the 29th, and had not waited for food on the morning of the 30th. He did not have cooking tools in his room and could only buy fast food, but the major take-out platforms were unable to deliver them due to the shortage of riders. He found several people who were starving like him in a Meituan take-out group. The community property and nucleic acid staff told him to find a solution, but the street phone could not be connected. A citizen living in a commercial apartment building in Qujiang New District introduced that the government personnel responsible for food delivery believed that the commercial apartment building does not belong to the community and does not provide food delivery services.

Some migrant workers have been hungry all day

Li Yu, 26, rents alone in a community in Guodu Street, Chang’an District. There are more than 200 households in the community and many tenants live here. By the 29th, there were 5 medium-risk areas in Guodu Street, but Li Yu’s community was not among them. However, the house he rented was sealed on the evening of the 28th, and no entry or exit was allowed. Community personnel told him that if the seal was torn, he would be fined 6,000 yuan.

The door was closed too suddenly, and Li Yu described the state at that time with “black eyes”. The staff who came to seal the door hurriedly left after posting a note. Without explaining too much, Li Yu chased out and asked urgently how to solve the material procurement. At this time, he had eaten all the instant noodles and dry noodles he bought three days ago, and there were only a few bags of milk left in the room. At first, community members said they could not understand what he was speaking in Mandarin. After Li Yu repeatedly asked, the other party informed him of the phone number of a community worker. “If I don’t go out and ask, I might never know the phone number of the purchaser.” Li Yu said that the connection between tenants like him and the local community is very weak. He has no community owners. Before being blocked, He has never had any direct contact with community workers, and this epidemic has made him more sensitive to his identity as “migrant workers.”

At 6 o’clock in the morning on the 29th, Li Yu told the community worker who was responsible for the purchase of the food he needed. By 3 o’clock in the afternoon, the other party replied that all the stores on the street were closed, and all the vegetables, rice noodles, and oil could not be purchased. At the same time, online channels are also ineffective, and the community group buying app shows that all foods are out of stock. Li Yu dialed the 12345 hotline for help, but could not be connected due to busy seats.

At 6 o’clock in the evening, Li Yu only drank some milk that day, so he could only ask the roommate if he had extra food to help.

At this time, Li Yu began to regret that he hadn’t participated in panic buying and hoarding a few days ago. On the 22nd, Xi’an City issued a notice stating that from 0:00 on the 23rd, communities (villages) and units in Xi’an City will implement closed management. Each household will have one person go out to purchase daily necessities every 2 days. It also stated that Xi’an City’s grain and oil When the supply of materials is sufficient, we call on everyone not to rush to buy them. On the same day, Li Yu prepared food for three days and went to the community canteen to purchase it again on the 25th. However, on the 27th, Xi’an has further upgraded its prevention and control levels, and citizens of the city are no longer allowed to leave their homes except for nucleic acid sampling. Li Yu could not go out, and the community did not deliver any supplies. On the 28th, he only ate two packets of dried noodles and a bottle of green tea.

Tian Yue, who lives in Ducheng Street (mid-risk area), Yanta District, is luckier than Li Yu. She snapped up vegetables through various WeChat groups. However, the price was several times higher than usual. Three eggplants, two cabbages, a few tomatoes, a handful of green onions and celery cost a total of 111 yuan. She hoped to contact the community and street office to buy the necessities of life at a reasonable price, but no one answered the phone. As of the evening of the 29th, Tian Yue’s community has not received the food delivered by the community.

However, some communities have been successful in purchasing. Mr. Hu, who lives in the high-tech zone, said that some of the vegetables he bought from the community had already arrived. Residents were queuing to pick up the dishes on the evening of the 29th, but the free vegetables distributed by the government have not yet been received.

The distributor is waiting for the pass

Chen Jie’s fleet is responsible for the distribution of fresh food such as fruits and vegetables for the Taocaicai platform, but since the 27th, all personnel in the fleet have been closed at home and cannot go out for delivery.

Before the current round of the epidemic in Xi’an, Chen Jie’s fleet had more than 60 vehicles in operation. After the outbreak, it was reduced to about 30 vehicles. There were more than 30 vehicles every day, providing delivery services to at least 300 community group shopping outlets.

After Xi’an upgraded its prevention and control measures on the 27th, non-epidemic prevention and control and people’s livelihood protection vehicles in the city will not be allowed on the road. Public security and epidemic prevention and control departments will conduct strict inspections on road vehicles and personnel. Since the 27th, Chen Jie’s fleet has been suspended. He introduced that there are still many teams in similar situations with them. To resume delivery, the convoy must obtain a pass issued by the government’s anti-epidemic office. According to Chen Jie’s understanding, the pass will be processed starting on the 28th. The fleet must send the business license and the distribution contract signed with the e-commerce platform to the Epidemic Prevention Office for review and approval. The number of passes is limited. At present, Chen Jie is communicating with the Epidemic Prevention Office and is preparing to provide relevant materials 30 days ago.

Another logistics company, Yellow Vest Logistics, is also facing a shortage of delivery personnel. The person in charge of Yellow Vest Logistics introduced that they are currently coordinating some home delivery personnel to apply for passes to ease personnel problems.

The shortage of delivery staff directly reflects the supply of materials at the end. On the evening of the 29th, a community group in the High-tech Zone issued a notice: Taocaicai will not open a group today, and there is a backlog of goods for 3 days, and there are not enough drivers to deliver.

On the afternoon of December 29, Chen Jianfeng, deputy director of the Xi’an Municipal Bureau of Commerce, responded that the main reason for the current impact on the supply of living materials is the low rate of employee attendance, and efforts will be made to solve the problems of ensuring that the employees of key enterprises go to get off work and logistics distribution vehicles pass.

As of December 29, a total of 962 cases of new crown patients have been diagnosed in this round of the epidemic in Xi’an. In the past four days, more than 150 people were diagnosed daily, and 151 new cases of new crown were newly confirmed on the 28th.

At the State Council’s joint prevention and control mechanism press conference held on the 29th, He Qinghua, first-level inspector from the CDC of the National Health Commission, introduced that the epidemic in Xi’an is currently in a stage of rapid development, and risk personnel investigation and control measures need to be further strengthened. Follow-up The risk of the epidemic spreading in the community is still relatively high.

On the evening of the 29th, the division of medium- and high-risk areas in Xi’an City was adjusted from the previous buildings and communities to communities and streets. There are currently 1 high-risk area, 58 medium-risk areas, and main urban areas such as Yanta and Weiyang. All counties are involved.
