Photo: VCGA well-known Chinese news anchor together with one Chinas top live streaming celebrity on Monday launched an online sales promotion for products from Central Chinas Hubei Province, which has been under lockdown for over two months due to the coronavirus outbreak. The live stream promotion, intended to boost economic recovery in Chinas hardest-hit province, went viral online and 40.14 million yuan ($5.7 million) worth of local products were sold in just two hours.The day before an official lockdown was lifted in Wuhan, capital of Hubei and the city most impacted by the novel coronavirus outbreak in China, a public benefit live stream broadcast on e-commerce platform Taobao drew an audience of 10.91 million, 122 million views and 160 million thumbs-up, according to state broadcaster CCTV.The live stream was launched jointly by CCTV news anchor Zhu Guangquan and Li Jiaqi, one of the top live streaming celebrities in China. The unique pairing has sparked huge interest among Chinese netizens and was the most searched hashtag on Chinas Twitter-like social media platform Weibo for over four hours on Monday.Nearly all 15 promoted products sold out within seconds of their introductions, and netizens said on Weibo that products sold out so quickly that they were unable to buy anything. Goods included Wuhans famous hot dry noodles, tea and other local agricultural products.Netizens were surprised by Zhus humorous and resourceful promotional slogans during the live stream, giving Zhu and Li the nickname “Peppa Pig,” saying they never thought the normally serious news anchor could be so funny.As Wuhan is set to officially “restart” on Wednesday following all-out efforts to combat the virus, which came at huge economic cost, e-commerce platforms have been rolling out promotional events to help assist the citys recovery.Alibaba on Monday launched a “Focusing on Hubei” channel to sell goods from the province, and received over 200,000 orders for agricultural products within one hour, according to reports.Live-streamed sales promotion has been widely adopted on Chinas e-commerce platforms in recent years and a host of nationally famous celebrities have followed. Li, dubbed the “lipstick king” in China, has sold over 33 million products since early February, according to reports.With support from celebrities, e-commerce platforms and other institutions, the hardest-hit province has seen gradual economic resumption since its standstill. Chinese netizens have said that though they were unable to fight the virus on the frontline, they are ready to help by placing orders for Hubei products.Global Timesload_file(“/includes-n/article_share.html”);RELATED ARTICLES Chinese live-streaming platforms facilitate remote learning for students in WuhanMore than 900,000 students in primary and secondary schools in Wuhan, epicenter of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, … A day with two Chinese live-streaming hostsZhu Cancan,a lively girl from Bozhou, a small city in East China’s Anhui Province, graduated from Shanghai Theatre …load_file(“/includes-n/article_most_view.html”);var wxs = (function() {return navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf(micromessenger) !== -1})();if (!wxs) {/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 1184870;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = https:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();}Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disqusload_file(“/includes-n/footer.html”);load_file(“/includes-n/addthis.html”);
