Sitting here in a bar in Yangon having a lunchtime beer, just sneezed a couple of times and appear to suddenly have four tables to myself. I do have a couple of masks with me, but no good when drinking beer.

Yup.65291

So 57,000,000 are under strict controls cause 500 have died.....less than the flu.
China wouldn’t cover anything up, would it.

What’s it like on Christmas Island, hope it does not become a popular destination. You can’t enter a major shopping centre, office block or most places where people congregate here In Myanmar without lining up to have your temperature checked, and no cases here yet. They are being very proactive, maybe not make much difference but at least making a big effort.

I believe it’s not to bad, they’ve still got the decorations up.

Well given that you don’t display symptoms for 14 days whilst infected, the temperature thing is a waste of time until you’re feeling ill.

That’s why I said maybe not make much difference, but at least trying.

I understand the chinese government knew of the outbreak months in advance and did sweet fa, in which time god knows how many people carrying the dormant virus would have flown out of the country spreading it worldwide :mad:

It was certainly a strong rumour a month ago. The authorities were taking precautions (if a greater number of body temperature scanners and masks count as precautions) in the administrative regions, doubtless even more so in China itself. Whether they actually made any comment is another story. Like that high speed train crash in Wenzhou where the mangled carriages were literally buried.
