Want to believe this is fizzling out but my gut says it's not.

They’re not down. IP blocking.
Instead of blocking WeChat directly which would raise a big response from the populace it’s more effective to block IP ranges or specific IPs. They have rooms full of people from countryside and college students looking for some extra cash watching stuff and blocking it on a custom app written in China. The app communicates directly to servers which blacklist addresses.
They can and do block ranges from being seen from outside China.

Kinda gives credence to this...
Trump administration taps 'emergency' funds to combat deadly coronavirus
The Trump administration has notified Congress that it will tap $105 million from a reserve fund designed to combat infectious diseases in response to the coronavirus.
this number will swell to $400 million once they add my little project to the total. The estimate i worked up was going to be coming from a reserve fund as well.
I am not trying to stoke panic, but you guys need to get prepared THIS week. NOW is the time to get what you need.

So how does this correlate to the other cities, including large cities in the US and Europe, in addition to Tokyo I mentioned before, showing 100% packet loss?
You're making claims of Shanghai being mostly offline, which honestly wouldn't shock me given the Chinese government, but providing no evidence other than your word. Sorry, I wouldn't even know where to begin to find websites that are hosted out of the city.
