    Sharing some 中国QT Photos... I know someone on their 14 day QT right now. They picked a hotel at the 400rmb per room price and this includes breakfast. They can order food and drink into the hotel. The food is actually from a different hotel where 3 meals were provided due to having no option to order in. Overall they’re very happy with how they’ve been treated and the experience in general. Someone regularly checks in on them (phone calls) and in English. The people on site also speak some English. If they have any issues there’s always someone available to ask. They also got a negative test result back so just doing their 14 and then can go home.

    This may be for a while, but the world needs to find a solution. For now, going to everyone wearing a mask (when supplies are sufficient in the Western world) should control the outbreak to the point when travel can happen again. China is ahead of the world in this. If their controls prove effective (and I expect this to be the case), then transmission will drop below that needed to sustain the epidemic (i.e., Ro<1). Long-term, we need a vaccine. Then we can return to life as normal. Humans show a strong immune response to the virus, so a vaccine is possible. However, it's hard to say when a safe & effective one will become available. Even longer term, the world should be investing more in vaccine research & development. However, once Covid-19 is addressed, interest in vaccine research will likely drop considerably and we'll go back to being surprised by a new virus. Fortunately, this wasn't like African Swine Fever that kills 90-100% of pigs and has been sweeping across Africa, Asia & Europe.

    I can't find the original article I read, but I also found it here on ChinaDaily http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/global/2019-08/05/content_37498627.htm Yeah, it's pretty crazy how fast these schools turn around. In my old office building, all you could hear was constant decorating. While one school is opening, others are shutting down. The outside of the building is nonstop changing the signs of different education places. I know that to be registered in Hangzhou you have to be on the third floor or below, and as these are mostly above the third floor, you can see the problem. There are still definitely fewer schools working illegally than when I first arrived in 2012. Back then, I used to get approached just walking down the street "Hi! Where you from? English? English? You teacher? Wan' come teach my school?"

    Unsure! I reckon a visa like that (doesn’t expire for a long time) will likely be valid again once this period is over (if and when). If you’re visa expires during this period probably 没办法. All speculation though! Who could know! Things change here twice a day 😂

    its a section of the most famous calligraphy work in Chinese history, the Lanting jixu, 'The Orchid Pavilion Collection (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lantingji_Xu) The section in your picture is from near the end, and reads 故列敘時人,錄其所述; Hence, we record the people presented here today and their works; 雖世殊事異, Even though time and circumstances will be different, 所以興懷,其致一也。 the feelings expressed will remain unchanged. 後之覽者,亦將有感於斯文。 The future readers shall also empathize the same by reading this poems collection.
