    What are you trying to say? Spell it out, dude.

    Yes, but that strategy is basically the same as other countries. We just don't want too many infected and sick at the same time, our healthcare wouldn't cope.

    Coronavirus

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-52092395 A number of European governments have rejected Chinese-made equipment designed to combat the coronavirus outbreak. Thousands of testing kits and medical masks are below standard or defective, according to authorities in Spain, Turkey and the Netherlands.
  4. I think this will be fixed sooner than most, with maybe a backlash in the fall. I don't think travelling to Los july or august is impossible and hopefully back to "normal" whatever that'll be , at the end of the year. But what do I know, this is just my guess (and hope), everyone is a pandemic expert nowadays, and we're all just guessing.

    Several countries in or neighbouring the EU have rejected Chinese-made coronavirus testing kits and protective equipment as substandard, raising concerns about the quality of supplies. https://www.ft.com/content/f3435779-a706-45c7-a7e2-43efbdd7777b

    Sihanoukville

    Congrats, Cambodia. I'm sure this will end well. In scrappy Cambodian casino town, Chinese plan future beyond coronavirus SIHANOUKVILLE, Cambodia (Reuters) - When casino owner Kang Qiang looks out the window of his 20th floor office in this city on the remote Cambodian coast, he sees construction cranes sitting idle. The Chinese-funded gambling enclave of Sihanoukville has suffered a double blow. Travel restrictions imposed in recent weeks to slow the global coronavirus pandemic have deepened the effects of a ban last year on lucrative online gambling. But Kang is betting on a future beyond the pandemic, banking on the return of money from China to finish transforming the scrappy frontier town into a gleaming metropolis. In a sign of his confidence, Kang's casino has installed gold urinals. "China speed", exclaims Gavin Gao, a gleeful young Chinese tech entrepreneur from Chengdu who has chosen to stick things out. "Sihanoukville is going at China speed ... Here is China 2.0!" Cambodians have mixed feelings about the Chinese. Their arrival brought money and jobs - and now their sudden absence is causing problems. The expatriates' confidence is buoyed by China's apparent success in fighting the coronavirus pandemic. As cases skyrocket elsewhere in the world, zero local transmissions have been reported on some days in China, where the virus originated. "They got it under control," says Bob Zhao, an earnest 28-year-old from Shandong who came to Sihanoukville seeking his fortune and found it as a sales consultant for a Chinese property developer. https://www.yahoo.com/news/scrappy-cambodian-casino-town-chinese-232757192.html
  7. Thailand's tourist haven Pattaya devastated as coronavirus hits travel PATTAYA, Thailand, March 29 (Reuters) - Beaches are deserted, go-go bars stand empty and cabarets have shut their doors in Thailand's tourist haven of Pattaya, as business has ground to a standstill after worldwide travel restrictions because of the coronavirus pandemic. For one of the world's most famed - some might say infamous - tourism hotspots, the economic devastation is near-total and business owners say haven't seen anything like it for four decades. "Our organization has halted business 100%. Pattaya is a tourist city, we rely mostly on them. The whole city is affected by the virus," Alcazar Cabaret Show executive Pawin Phettrakul told Reuters. In normal times, the theatre - which features high-kicking dancing girls wearing elaborate feather headdresses and sequined dresses - sees over a thousand tourists daily, but now there are zero. Alcazar Cabaret is not planning on laying off its staff at the moment, but the foreseeable future seems bleak. Thailand depends on tourism for around 12% of its GDP, but in Pattaya, nearly the entire economy runs on visitors. The resort town saw over 15 million visitors in 2018, according to the 2019 Chonburi Provincial Statistical Report, which was already a 20% drop from the previous year. "I would say that this is the worse that has ever hit Pattaya. And, during the past two to three weeks, so much businesses has already folded, has already went bankrupt, closed down due to the coronavirus," said Roy Fu Wanlong, a business owner in Pattaya. The city in recent years has been trying to shed its association with sex tourism that started in the 1970s when it became a rest and relaxation spot for U.S. soldiers during the Vietnam War. https://www.yahoo.com/news/thailands-tourist-haven-pattaya-devastated-081749199.html

    Wuhan's Crematoriums Are Filling Thousands of Urns With Coronavirus Remains Each Day Wuhan residents are waiting for hours in line to pick up the remains of their loved ones. The Chinese government insists that the death toll from the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan is 2,535. But last week, 5,000 urns were delivered to a single Wuhan crematorium in just two days. The crematorium is one of seven in Wuhan. Now, as restrictions on residents’ movements are eased in Wuhan, thousands of people are making the grim journey to funeral homes across the city to pick up their loved ones’ remains. https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/88435z/wuhans-crematoriums-are-filling-thousands-of-urns-with-coronavirus-remains-each-day

    Wuhan's death toll could be astronomically higher than the Chinese government has reported, some residents say Almost a week has passed since a case of the novel coronavirus has been reported in Wuhan, China, where the viral outbreak began late last year before sweeping the world. Coronavirus cases are flattening off across China, Reuters reported on Monday. But some Wuhan residents believe that government officials have not accurately counted the number of deaths from the coronavirus. The majority of China's cases were reported in Wuhan, with more than 67,000 people contracting the virus in the province of Hubei. According to the Mail on Sunday, the British government is furious with China, accusing it of underreporting its number of cases. The newspaper, which cited unnamed sources, said scientists told UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson that China could have downplayed its number of confirmed cases of the coronavirus "by a factor of 15 to 40 times." https://www.yahoo.com/news/wuhans-death-toll-could-astronomically-204533948.html

    Wuhan Residents Dismiss Official Coronavirus Death Toll: ‘The Incinerators Have Been Working Around the Clock’ Wuhan residents are increasingly skeptical of the Chinese Communist Party’s reported coronavirus death count of approximately 2,500 deaths in the city to date, with most people believing the actual number is at least 40,000. “Maybe the authorities are gradually releasing the real figures, intentionally or unintentionally, so that people will gradually come to accept the reality,” a Wuhan resident, who gave only his surname Mao, told Radio Free Asia. A city source added that, based on the aggregation of funeral and cremation numbers, authorities likely know the real number and are keeping it under wraps. “Every funeral home reports data on cremations directly to the authorities twice daily,” the source said. “This means that each funeral home only knows how many cremations it has conducted, but not the situation at the other funeral homes.” https://www.yahoo.com/news/wuhan-residents-dismiss-official-coronavirus-164859600.html

    Well, unfortunately these sources aren't, but quite the opposite. Very depressing read: Here's How China Is Rewriting the History of the Coronavirus Pandemic to Make Itself the Hero The Chinese government has waged a months-long disinformation campaign to portray itself as the country that defeated the virus, when it attempted to hide it for months. https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/8843dz/heres-how-china-is-rewriting-the-history-of-the-coronavirus-pandemic-to-make-itself-the-hero
