Imagine being on a first date that you couldn’t end? This is what happened to a woman in China whose video blogs about citywide lockdown on a blind date went viral.

More than 100 cases of the virus have been reported in central China’s Zhengzhou city since last week, as China struggles to contain several local outbreaks of the Delta and Omicron variants.

Last Wednesday, parts of the city were brutally closed when a woman named Wang had dinner at her blind date.

“I’m getting old now, my family presented me with ten matches … The fifth date wanted to show off his cooking skills and invited me to his house for dinner.”

Wang did not disclose his age or the man’s identity in the videos.

The related hashtags racked up more than six million views on the Twitter-like social media site Weibo on Wednesday.
