China Lifts Lockdown On Wuhan But Some Restrictions Remain

WUHAN, China (AP) — Amid streets newly bustling with cars and pedestrians, Wang Chun celebrated the lifting of a virus lockdown on her hometown of Wuhan on Wednesday with a dance outdoors after 2 1/2 months largely cooped up at home. “I’m so happy Wuhan has defeated the virus,” Wang said after recording a K-Pop-inspired duet with a male partner for posting on the internet. Neither of them wore face masks, at least for a brief few minutes. After she put on the mask again, Wang confronted the q...

Comparing Wuhan to Italy and New York

There’s some very tentative information today that New York may be nearing the peak of its outbreak. I want to emphasize very tentative. If we go by the progression in the hardest hit countries in Europe, even if this is at or near the peak we are likely to see more days where numbers spike again. And I will finally say that there has been evidence of some numbers slowing over weekends. With all that, the number of fatalities in New York was lower yesterday and today than it was on Saturday when...

How Did Covid-19 Begin? Its Initial Origin Story is Shaky. (slashdot)

The story of how the novel coronavirus emerged in Wuhan, China, has produced a nasty propaganda battle between the United States and China. From a report: The two sides have traded some of the sharpest charges made between two nations since the Soviet Union in 1985 falsely accused the CIA of manufacturing AIDS. U.S. intelligence officials don't think the pandemic was caused by deliberate wrongdoing. The outbreak that has now swept the world instead began with a simpler story, albeit one with tra...

Is simple breathing enough to spread coronavirus? Some experts now say yes

For weeks, the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control said coronavirus spreads mainly through droplets expelled when sick people cough and sneeze. The risk of catching COVID-19 from someone with no symptoms at all, they said, was very low. Officials downplayed the need for widescale protective gear for all health care workers and dismissed the use of face masks for the general public as potentially dangerous. Now — as California’s governor encourages people to cover t...
