Q: Are you ready ... for 2nd wave of beer-virus?

Second Wave? China Orders 'Partial Lockdown' Of Border City; Seoul's Newest Cluster Explodes To 120 Cases: Live Updates

This does not bode well for the US and Europe ...

 

Wed, 05/13/2020 - 06:41

 

Summary:

  • *China imposes 'partial lockdown' on northeastern border city
  •  
  • *SK's 'Itaewon' cluster climbs to 120
  •  
  • *Germany, Austria agree to reopen mutual border
  •  
  • *Global cases: 4.22 million
  •  
  • *Global deaths: 291,519
  •  
  • *Poland reports record jump in new cases
  •  
  • *Russia sees numbers start to slow after shocking record run of confirmations
  •  
  • While South Korea remains on high alert, the situation in northeastern China grew even more dire. As we have reported this week, local party officials in Jilin City had reimposed restrictions after an outbreak. Now, they're taking things a step further and ordering a 'partial lockdown' of the village. Residents will only be allowed to leave after they've completed a period of 'self-isolation' and tested negative for the virus. Residential compounds have been closed to visitors, and public transit has been halted.

    It's just the latest sign that both China and South Korea might be seeing the first stirrings of the 'second wave' that Dr. Fauci and other scientists have warned about.

    After rocketing into the No. 2 spot directly behind the US, Russia’s rate of new coronavirus cases eased on Wednesday, even if only slightly, as the country recorded an 11th consecutive day with more than 10,000 fresh infections. Russia recorded 10,028 new cases on Wednesday, according to official government data, the smallest rise in almost a fortnight. Its total number of cases is now at 242,271, with 2,212 deaths.

     

    As of Wednesday morning, the virus had infected more than 4.2 million people globally and killed 291,519, according to JHU's tally.

Because each and every person in the world has not been tested for Covid 19, it is impossible to state who has had the virus and who has not.

 

There is a good chance that if you may have already had this virus, but the symptoms were so mild that you did not notice,

 

by and large most (European) countries are only testing those admitted into hospitals, those exhibiting a specific combination of symptoms and those in close contact with confirmed cases.

 

Chances are, if you are one of the 80% who will exhibit mild to no symptoms, you will not even know you have had Covid 19. 

Keeping up with fresh air (no masks as this reduces oxygen flow into the body, which is necessary for good health), exercise of some form and healthy food, will allow for continued support of a good immune system.
 

isolation also means a reduction in your mental health, which impacts your physical health.

 

I am related to a nurse, and have a few nurses/doctors in my social circle.

 

They all advocate the above and emphasise the fact that wearing a face-mask (unless you are a madical professional in a hospital environment), is completely unnecessay and actually may contribute to reducing your over-all health.

 

Stress and fear from the whole 'isolation' being promoted also impacts your overall health.

 

bottom line

if you can, get out, exercise, breath the fresh air deeply and talk to people as you pass them by - even if it is only a 'hello'

    Hundreds Of Villages Locked Down In Northeastern China As Beijing Mobilizes 'Army Of Volunteers' To Suppress Latest Outbreak

      Along with the lockdown measures, officials are launching a testing drive seeking to test as many residents of the province as possible.

       

       

      We had a hunch when we saw the Chinese press yesterday playing up China's latest "milestone" of one month without any COVID-19-linked deaths that some, shall we say, suboptimal news would likely soon follow.

      And once again, our instincts proved correct: Local officials in China's northeastern Jilin Province - which is situated along China's border with Russia, which is presently struggling with a raging outbreak of its own - revealed on Saturday that the government was locking down hundreds of villages in the province, as well as some 1,000 residential buildings in Shulan, a small city (by Chinese standards) located in the center of the province, NBC News reports.

      Over the last couple of weeks, reports of new cases in the province led to officials in Beijing designating the province as "high risk" and imposing a "partial lockdown" be restored a few days ago.

      The CCP has blamed the latest outbreak on Russia and Chinese nationals living in the province who had recently returned from Russia. At least this theory absolves China of the blame, and reports of infected Chinese travelers returning from Russia have been popping up in the mainland press for months.

      Along with the lockdown measures, officials are launching a testing drive seeking to test as many residents of the province as possible. They've already tested ~20k of the provinces ~27.5 million residents.

      Meanwhile officials in Jilin Province are mobilizing tremendous resources including hundreds of nurses, doctors and volunteers. Most transport has also been halted to 1,205 villages and their surrounding areas.

      Shulan City Mayor Jin Hua said Saturday that all prevention and control measures had been "strictly implemented in accordance with the central government's decision-making and the requirements of provinces and cities" since the beginning of the outbreak.

      She added that before May 7, there had "been no indigenous cases," in the city, noting that likely some "Shulan nationals living abroad, especially Russia," had returned with the virus.

      As of Friday, Shulan city reported a total of 16 locally confirmed cases. The wider Jilin province reported a total 121 local cases, and 19 imported cases, according to the region's health commission.

      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
