While the streets of Shanghai are slowly coming back to life, many remain deceptively quiet, and if you let your guard down you may end up in a serious accident.

Shanghai's traffic police have released footage and details of two serious vehicle incidents this month which led to the death of a young e-bike rider and two more seriously injured. 

The culprit? Those seemingly quiet streets.

It appears people might be relaxing their usual alertness around the roads because of the empty state of the city's streets over the past two weeks. 

Check out Andy's latest vlog above where he details those hideous e-bike incidents and teaches you how to say "Covid-19" (novel coronavirus) in Mandarin Chinese.
