VIDEO: Chinese Authorities ‘Disinfect’ Wuhan With Fleets of Trucks Spraying Chemicals in the Air

Chinese government-owned newspaper The People’s Daily released video of the “disinfection” of the city of Wuhan featuring fire trucks and platoons of men in hazmat gear roaming the streets and spraying chemicals in the air.

The People’s Daily, which is the official newspaper of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, posted the video to Twitter.

“Full-front disinfection work has started in #Wuhan, an effort to contain the spread of #coronavirus,” the tweet caption read.

In the footage, fleets of fire trucks can be seen rolling down the streets of Wuhan spraying some type of chemicals, presumably disinfectant, into the air.

The flashing emergency lights and clouds of mist create an interesting scene on what appear to be otherwise deserted streets.

In another clip, men in hazmat suits run while rolling a wheeled liquid cannon down a street, covering storefronts in a white mist.

Another man-portable variant of the “disinfectant” cannon is seen carried by several members of the hazmat crew. This version has a set of twin gas canisters that are mounted to the back of the user.

The footage seems to suggest that the Chinese government is launching a concerted, high-budget operation to fight the spread of the novel Wuhan coronavirus, contrasting with early reports that characterized the virus as a minor infection.

In Indonesia, deplaning passengers were sprayed with liquid as they descended the steps of their flight in an effort to fight the spread of coronavirus.

Video footage shows deplaning Indonesian passengers being sprayed with liquid by men in yellow hazmat gear, presumably in an attempt to fight the coronavirus.

The tanks holding the disinfectant liquid appear to be labeled “ALKOHOL.”

The passengers, many of whom are clad in religious garb and facemasks but with no eye protection, are unceremoniously doused with the spray as they descend the airplane staircase.

Clothes and personal belongings appear to be of particular interest to the hazmat crew, but some passengers take blasts direct to the face from the hose.

The video was posted to Twitter by @russian_market with the caption “They call it disinfection? Indonesia… no words.”

The exact makeup of the chemicals used in the disinfection campaign was not released by The People’s Daily.
