Despite having to quarantine at home for the past few weeks, the rich and fashionable in Shanghai still have a way to show off their money. That’s hanging paper bags with the logos of luxury brands outside the door to collect Covid-19 test kits and other everyday items.
On April 3, Shanghai conducted a citywide Covid-19 test sample. Covid-19 rapid test kits are delivered door-to-door by medical staff. To prevent the risk of corona virus infection between people, the local government asked people to hang bags outside their doors for medical staff to put test kits in.

This is a rare opportunity for the rich to show “they are rich” through medical bags. Accordingly, a series of bags with logos of brands for luxury fashionistas such as Burberry, Prada, Louis Vuitton and Chanel appeared on the doorsteps of households.
In addition to bags printed with the logos of expensive overseas brands, some Shanghainese also show their love for domestic brands. Typically, the image of a Mao-tai bag has attracted the attention of the Chinese online community.
Many people think that the image of luxury bags hanging in front of the house is like a medicine to help people relieve their sadness during the blockade period. This is also considered a different response of the people of Shanghai to the epidemic compared to other areas.
“This is just for fun because people have been isolated at home for more than 20 days,” the South China Morning Post (SCMP) quoted a netizen as commenting.
“The elegant life of the people of Shanghai is demonstrated once again: run away to buy coffee immediately when the quarantine is temporarily lifted; waiting in long queues for Covid-19 test samples with glasses of wine in hand; and now getting a quick test kit in a branded bag,” wrote another.
Many people even joke that bags with famous brand logos are more expensive than the doors where they are hung.
