China is troubled with epidemics

It is very serious situation and it is now the Chinese Lunar New Year which sees many celebration activities stopped and the nationwide people movement suspended. Tourism and catering industry suffer hugely.
God bless China and Chinese people!

Hello Nanning. Do we know the cause of these epidemics - the latest of which is fortunately not yet a pandemic?

--

ORIGIN - epidemic
early 17th century (as an adjective): from French épidémique, from épidémie, via late Latin from Greek epidēmia ‘prevalence of disease’, from epidēmios ‘prevalent’, from epi ‘upon’ + dēmos ‘the people’.

ORIGIN - pandemic
mid 17th century: from Greek pandēmos (from pan ‘all’ + dēmos ‘people’) + -ic.

We have almost gone through the disaster, but not without heavy prices paid. Nearly all the population of the country have been stuck at home indoors, with most of them driven half crazy for nearly two months.

While some of the other countries who are not so friendly to China looked on, now more than 100 countries are under the bad situation, with confirmed cases increased day by day, but we Chinese are always ready to offer our Chinese solutions and wisdom to help anybody who needs our help.

The figure of Baidu, the most popular search engine of China shows that most of Chinese staying at home have no other things to do than search online porn materials but porn in any form is banned by governments in the country. Human nature does not lie. What a fucking time it is, there will be more children after the epidemic.

Latest news says that a group of 13 foreigners got into China from Vietnam through the southern border in Guangxi by climbing moutains were intercepted and repatriated. Since all borders are closed, China is a safe place for many foreigners to stay in compared with other places in the world.
The chief of the Chinese border patrol team who succeeded in capturing these illegal immigrants is named Yang Jianfeng, secretary of a Communist Party of China township committee, and an alumnus of our college. We are very proud of having such marvellous alumnus working for the joint efforts in controling and preventing the pandemic.

I saw today that the w-virus is making a comeback in Beijing and other places. And all gyms in Beijing now have to close again because ONE gym miles away in Beijing had one COVID case. Could that be true? Why would they close all the gyms because ONE gym had COVID, yet they leave the restaurants open? Does it mean that COVID is now only targeting gyms :?:

I don't where you got your information. But whatever there is nothing wrong to be very cautious and it is better to kill a thousand wrong men than to let the real criminal at large. The country and the world have suffered so much, a little more trouble added to the disorder is nothing. I live in Guangxi, nearly three thousand kilometers away from the capital and without any confrimed cases for nearly 40 days, but here we still observe the strict measures for controling COVID-19, with no indoor gyms open to the public and most of the schools at various levels remain closed.
Sometines I can't help thinking you Europeans are over optimistic or naive about the disease and that you want to lift the lockdown sooner than China facing with much more cases than in China.
