Petit survol en drone du nouveau centre de quarantaine international de #Guangzhou qui ouvre ses portes le 20 septembre, en prévision de la prochaine ouverture aux voyageurs étrangers. Moins fun que celui du @PGATOUR ou du centre des Dallas Cowboys.


257.800 m² et 5.000 chambres payantes avec TV, internet, air conditionné et salles de bain privée. Les dimensions des chambres vont de 18m² pour la plus économique jusqu'à 36m² pour une famille souhaitant s'isoler en quarantaine ( 14 jours + 7 jours ) ensemble.

La réalisation de cet énorme complexe vise à améliorer les conditions d'arrivées des étrangers, mais aussi à limiter le nombre de contaminations et de clusters naissants provoqués par le personnel en charge du ménage ou des livraisons des repas dans les actuels hôtels Covid

I am trying to explain the health code system in China.

I have traveled to mainland China two times since borders closed in 2020. My trips covered 10+ provinces, 15+ cities.

These are my observations & comments, not from official sources. 🔽
First there is not one code but two commonly used codes - 健康碼 health code that's province specific & 行程碼 travel record code. Occasionally there's another code.

There's no one unified national code. Inconvenient but also means not centralized as some may think. 🔽
This is the health code from the Guangdong province. Area A is the famous green/amber/red code. Most place you only need to show, no need to actual scan. This code can be accessed from WeChat or AliPay or other banking/govt apps. 🔽 Image

#Covid19 drove hundreds of Africans out of Guangzhou. A generation of mixed-race children is their legacy

""Now it is very, very quiet," Dieng says of Little Africa, a nook of #Guangzhou."

#BlackLivesMatter—China #Biracial #racism #ChinaAfrica…
""China wants to be the middleman and not have Africans (in its borders)," says Mathews, author of "The World in Guangzhou." "So it would make much more sense for the Chinese merchants to move to Africa, rather than having the Africans go to China."

Jenni Marsh, CNN, says that

'Africans also brought with them value systems that did not easily fit in with China's political environment.

"Many were deeply religious, founding underground Christian churches, which sometimes attracted Chinese congregations

Meanwhile in #France,
"the peak of this second wave is over"

(according to the President in his Adress to the Nation):
Wait... "the peak is over" doesn´t mean "it´s back to normal"!

Confinement will only fall on December 15,
if there´s less than 5.000 new cases a day.
(today it´s ~9.000).

France is disappointed.🙁

Although they certainly can make it happen.
Meanwhile in #Switzerland:
(excess mortality of the second wave is significant)

Good news: fastest decrease in infections happens in the worst hit areas now.

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

(If you don't care about geopolitics, kindly scroll through.)
Living in Taiwan, I am obviously watching #China with great interest. And what I see is an unmitigated PR disaster that will have an enormous impact on the country even short term, more so long term. 1/n
If you are not familiar with Chinese culture, the most important thing you should know is "face". It doesn't matter how bad the situation is internally, the only thing you can't afford to lose is your "face". Appearing weak, being criticized, God forbid being laughed at. 2/n
Combine this with the extreme inertia of a Communist regime and you get the worst possible mix. A country that can't face its failures internally AND externally, and can't correct its course. #China, now as we speak, is digging herself into a very deep hole. 3/n
