"For your safety, we hope citizens who want to go to Costco can maintain a rational attitude about consumption and avoid going out during rush hours. Those who have already gone there, you must follow orders," the Shanghai police said in a statment.

It appears this mob mentality is a thing in Shanghai. Lining up for queues is a foreign concept. Pushing one's way to the front is the norm.

The building is regulating entrance to 2000 Members only at a time to keep things orderly.

On social media, the Taiwanese, Singaporeans, Malaysians, and Japanese all collectively sighing at the Chinese. I guess you can liken the Taiwanese, Singaporeans, Malaysians and Japanese to Liberals, and the Chinese to the Redneck southerners in the United States.
