Q: Any issues travelling domestically?

Has anybody had any issues travelling domestically via train? Did you have to apply for separate QR health check codes in each city?

I have separate health codes for each city I visit, but whether the authorities ask for them or not is a different matter. In Hangzhou, it was asked for. In Shanghai, it wasn't. 

 

No issues travelling by trainJust make sure you go into the "manual check" line, as all tickets are now linked to your passport number, and they scan the ID page of your passport

The health issues revolve around the usual livestock in the aisles, second hand smoke and hawking up portions of lung to spit on the floor. Don't even start me on 'the facilities'. Yikes

Another COVID Cover-Up In China? BBC Reporter Says Numbers Don't Add Up In New Outbreak 

Footage shows residents being rounded up with hazmat-suited officials barking orders....

JUN 17, 2020 1:05 PM

 

The BBC’s correspondent in China has warned that the communist government may be in the midst of a second coronavirus cover up, as a massive police and medical response to a new cluster in Beijing doesn’t tally with the reported number of cases.

 

The Chinese government has locked down the capital city, instituted travel bans, and is rounding up residents, putting them on buses and placing them in quarantine: The footage was shot by activist Jennifer Zeng, who claims that seven hotels in the city were requisitioned by the government to be used as quarantine sites.

However, Beijing only reported 27 new infections yesterday, and 106 in the past five days, prompting many to wonder, just what the hell is going on here.

More footage shows hundreds of people lining up outside Youan hospital in Beijing for virus screening:

Massive amounts of fruit and vegetables have been discarded after Beijing shut down Xinfadi wholesale market:

Earlier in the week huge amounts of police were deployed to the market:

 

The BBC’s Stephen McDonell noted that the Chinese government is either being “super cautious”, or they are again not giving accurate figures on the new infection rate.

Owners of the market that was shut down in Beijing are reportedly claiming that the ‘more infectious’ strain of the virus came from Europe via some dodgy salmon, however the Chinese Centre for Disease has said there is no evidence to support the claims.

If this fresh outbreak is ‘very severe’ as authorities are claiming, then where are the infected?

Will Europe move to block flights coming from China this time, or once again allow transmission of the virus unhindered?

One more intriguing theory of what is happening comes from professor Steve Tsang of the School of Oriental and African Studies, who has contended that China is using Covid-19 to ‘divide and conquer’ Europe.

“China is essentially trying a divide and rule approach to the EU,” Tsang told the Daily Express, adding “Some of the EU countries are being enticed to be much closer to China and to break away from European norms. And that is a serious problem.”

China has sent coronavirus aid to countries that have not received it quickly enough from the EU.

“The pandemic hasn’t helped but the problem with the pandemic is not so much in eastern European countries as it is with Italy.” Tsang added.

Since 2012, China has heavily invested in the infrastructure of 17 eastern and central European countries, including the likes of Hungary and Greece, via the Belt and Road Initiative.

Many see this as a way of exerting dominance in global trade. With the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the lax response of the EU in helping its member states, China has everything to gain.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
