Chinese authorities have been tying up citizens who go out in public without a mask, parading them through the streets and forcing them to hold up signs apologizing for their mistakes.
As the Chinese government ramps up its efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus outbreak, videos posted to social media show how local police forces are implementing the directives from Beijing.
The videos, which have been shared widely on Chinese platforms like WeChat and Weibo, as well as western platforms like Twitter, show how authorities are taking a very strict stance against anyone who goes out in public without wearing a mask.
