SHANGHAI (Bloomberg): A Shanghai nursing home resident was mistakenly taken to the morgue while still alive, state media reported, as the city’s Covid-19 outbreak and prolonged lockdown stretch aged-care and medical facilities to breaking point.

The municipal government confirmed the incident and said it has launched an investigation, local media reported. While the nursing home apologised, the error has triggered widespread anger and condemnation among Chinese people, according to discussions on social media.
