That is a difficult question to answer. It is difficult to understand how China can shutter entire communities and cities when there are only a handful of infections. Yet, this is being done. Logic says that there must be a much higher number that is not being reported in the media to justify these large scale shutdowns. Until China accurrate and honestly submits data, your friend's question will remain unanswered.

"It is difficult to understand how China can shutter entire communities and cities when there are only a handful of infections. Yet, this is being done."

 

China isn't the only country doing this though, we did the same thing here in NZ and a state in Australia has recently done pretty much the same thing. We aren't the only countries to take this approach.

 

"Logic says that there must be a much higher number that is not being reported in the media to justify these large scale shutdowns."

 

I think that's exactly the logic they're working on. By the time someone starts showing symptoms and comes forward to be tested they've already been around countless people, coughed on countless door handles etc ... it's next to impossible to know who they might have infected and in the meantime those newly infected are walking around, coughing on countless door handles, using public transport etc. A few of those infected might be picked up in testing but the majority probably won't be, especially if they show no symptoms, they'll continue quietly spreading it.

 

So whatever official numbers they release to the public I doubt that the scientists trying to contain the virus assume that because they found a handful of cases then they only have a handful of cases, they'll be going on the assumption that the handful of cases they know about will indicate probably a busload of cases out there all unknowingly spreading it around. 1 very quickly becomes 2 becomes 7 becomes 35 becomes150...

 

If you've decided that containing the virus is less damaging overall than letting it get out of control I think that closing down a community or city when you find a handful of cases makes a lot of sense.

Zoom is bad ... Argentinian MP resigns after sucking on woman's breasts during online congressional session

Stop forgetting to turn off camera: Argentinian MP resigns after sucking on woman's breasts during online congressional session

In perhaps one of the most high-stakes Zoom mishaps of the pandemic, Argentinian MP Juan Emilio Ameri decided to suck on a woman's breast amid a virtual parliamentary session, which resulted in his suspension and resignation.

In perhaps one of the most high-stakes Zoom mishaps of the pandemic, Argentinian MP Juan Emilio Ameri decided to suck on a woman's breast amid a virtual parliamentary session, which resulted in his suspension and resignation.

During Thursday’s budget talks the father-of-three legislator first put a young woman on his lap, then pulled her top off and proceeded to touch her breast with his mouth. Ameri was suspended immediately after the scene played out for both his fellow MPs and the viewers at home.

Of course it has been completely eradicated from China for several months. Only those filthy western dogs keep attempting to reintroduce the virus. Legitimate measures are undertaken to ensure the ideological purity of the mainland. We praise the Chairman for his foresight and planning to bring peace, prosperity and harmony to the society.

and ... selling some PPE to other nations battling China virus .., i.e. Chinese humility ... and influence .. .

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
