n eerie scene of a blood-red sky over a Chinese city has sparked fear among citizens.

Footage taken by residents in Zhoushan, neighbouring China's Covid-hit port city of Shanghai, shows the night sky turn into orange-red hues among a thick layer of fog.

The "red sky" phenomenon can be seen across the entire city for hours since Saturday night (May 7).
