The latest update on the spread of the #Wuhan-type #Coronavirus:
- the number of people infected has grown to 9692 - more than SARS ever had
- the number of casualties has been raised to 213
- the #WHO has declared an international health emergency situation
Apart from that, the ISPO #Beijing trade show has been cancelled and CNY holidays have been extended by another week.

I guess all is well in #China - NOT.

Congress to Google: Stop incentivizing climate change misinformation on YouTube

The search giant has been accused of sending millions of people to climate denial videos every day. #climatecrisis #climateemergency #environment #pollution #misinformation

All the village's round where I live are preparing for the zombie apocalypse. This is the Yangshuo area outside of Guilin in Guangxi province all roads are being blocked.

No police, no government officials, no fire service, just good old direct action. Although I think there are better things they could do to stay safe. I really like to see this direct action from the community instead of the useless government.

According to Reuters, #China has announced to extend the #LunarNewYear holidays in #Shanghai (NOT in #Wuhan) by a full week. Expect an impact on the Q1 growth numbers due to this extra week of holidays and closed offices: one week is one thirteenth of a quarter after all, which accounts for about 7.5%. #economy #Coronavirus

China makes pig do 68m bungee 

A China theme park in ChongQing forced a live pig off a 68m bungee jup tower!

Nurse in #Wuhan, #China talks about the #Corona virus. Says 90,000 people are infected, says government numbers are lies. Asks Chinese not to go out with New Years to keep each other safe.
This sounds pretty scary.

Hubei coronar virus 

"Just entered Hubei Province where the outbreak started. virtually nobody on the streets here. At the checkpoint the police said we can go in but they won’t let us back out. It looks like the entire province of Hubei, population 30 million, to be locked down."

The latest plot twist reg. that #Wuhan-type #Coronavirus and its spreading is almost funny (not really seen the seriousness of the situation): In #China, wearing #facemask|s is mandatory now to avoid a further spreading of the disease. This renders all those surveillance cameras useless as the masks prevent #facialrecognition. From a mask ban in #HongKong to a mandatory masks in a couple of weeks, who would have thought so?

Probably the only good thing about the ongoing outbreak of the #Wuhan-type #Coronavirus is that the ban on facial masks in #HongKong is off the table now: Rather than being a sign of rebellion, those masks now become a sign of responsibility. And yes: That virus is also metaphorical for the spread of #China's power and oppression in the #FarEast.

While the new type of #Coronavirus has been successfully identified by now, the spread has not been stopped: Two new cases reported from #Wuhan with additional cases in #Japan and #Thailand. #China may be reckless and efficient at silencing dissent and monitoring its subjects, but it has failed at containing diseases repeatedly due to a mix of ignorance, censorship and wrong priorities. Please avoid a SARS 2.0, will you? #FarEast
