In this article you will find a collection of propaganda banners in China to encourage people to stay at home during the Coronavirus.
Huge red banners are very common in all of China. They can be found in every corner of megacities and small villages and serve as a reminder of how much the Party plays a central role in the life of the people.
Usually, apart from the classic invitation to live in a “civilized manner and in harmony with the principles of the Party” these slogans have no particularly disturbing messages.
During the Coronavirus, however, things have changed. Throughout the country, very restrictive measures have been taken to limit the spread of the desease in all of China but some counties went the extra mile in trying to establish more restrictive forms of control.
One of the thing that seem to have gotten out of hand is the use of propaganda banners to “invite” people to stay at home and avoid contact with other people.
Here are some of the weirdest:
Coming home with your disease won’t make your parents happy, infecting mom and dad proves you don’t have a conscience.
Those who don’t report their fever are class enemies hiding among the people
Stay home to prevent infection, if the in-laws come to visit, don’t let them in
Save pennies by not wearing a mask, spend a fortune to get treatment on your sick bed
A surgical mask or a breathing tube, the choice is yours
No visitors for this year’s Chinese New Year, whomever comes to visit you is an enemy. Don’t open the door to enemies
Please avoid going to crowded places as much as possible, the amount of pension you will receive when you retire depends on how often you go out
Not to gather for a party is to be able to eat in the future, not to visit others is to have relatives in the future
Visiting friends and family is a mutual massacre, celebrating is seeking death
One wild animal bite today, I’ll see you in hell tomorrow
Skipping a meal won’t hurt the love of the family
Those who go out for parties are shameless people, those who play mahjong with others risk their lives
Everyone you meet on the street now is a wild ghost trying to take your life
Even the Chinese gods must wear masks, the epidemic is no joke
As long as there is a shallot at home, do not go to the supermarket
If you go out in public today, the grass will grow on your grave next year
I’ll break your legs if you insist on leaving, I’ll break your teeth if you dare me
You’re a piece of trash if you go out without wearing a mask
Eat a lot of wild animals today, rest well in the hospital bed tomorrow
在家待着不要乱串.空调 电视 wifi相伴
Stay home and don’t go out. You have heating, television and wifi as friends
Don’t touch wild animals, viruses can jump at you at any time.
How to show your filial mercy? By having your parents grounded!
Report the mahjong houses your parents go to, just like they reported illegal internet cafes years ago
Leaving the village is like committing suicide, staying at home is the safest choice you can make
Wearing a mask is undeniably better than being hooked to a breathing tube, lying at home is better than being put in intensive care
What we quarantine are not our comrades in Hubei, but the virus.
