Authorities and government officials have asked the population to stay home due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in order to control its spread.
Such a strategy worked perfectly for China's communist dictatorship. There, the government — along with its political party and the military — forced its citizens to stay in their residences in the face of the crisis caused by the disease. Otherwise, residents of that nation would have faced strong economic sanctions. However, thanks to the fact China’s government manages the means of production, its people had access to various necessary items to survive.
