How to use confined in a sentence?

  1. V Naipaul:

  4. Josh Campbell:

    Portland is not a city under siege. Today, I went to a Starbucks downtown, ate lunch at one of the city's famous downtown food trucks, and bought a new pair of shoes at the mall. As I write this, I'm looking out of my hotel room at a bike tour riding by outside on the downtown street, to be sure, there have been protests -- peaceful during the daytime, and some turning violent at night -- for over 90 days, but the rioting has largely been confined to one city block downtown near the federal courthouse. Last night, protesters showed up at a police precinct a few miles from downtown and were dispersed by police after some protesters started throwing eggs and rocks at police cars. There has been periodic, localized violence, but nothing widespread.

  5. Chucheng Feng:

    However, as the epidemic extends into February, the gathering of China's entire political elite in a confined Great Hall of the People for over a week looks quite dangerous.
