I need everyone reporting on the devastating #lunarnewyear shooting to know a few things about #montereypark (thread)
#MontereyPark is home for my diasporic family. It is where you find the best damn Chinese food in the U.S. It is the 1st Asian ethnoburb: an ethnic enclave in the 'burbs that thrives b/c it refuses to assimilate, instead unapologetically catering to its own immigrant community.
Formerly an exclusive white middle class suburb, MP became “the first suburban Chinatown” by the 80s, when "highly skilled" Asians, SEAsian refugees, and working class undocumented immigrants started settling in MP and its surrounding areas now known as San Gabriel Valley (SGV).

WATCH: #BNNUS Reports.

Just east of downtown Los Angeles in #MontereyPark, Ca, a mass shooting took place just after 10:30 p.m. as a Lunar New Year celebration came to an end. There are multiple Asian businesses in the area.

#US #Crime
Two witnesses said they heard gunfire but initially assumed it was fireworks to mark the #LunarNewYear.
Per police scanner radio traffic there are 10 dead and 6 wounded. 2 are in critical condition.

All wounded have been transported to local hospitals.

The #YearOfTheOx begins with the #ChineseNewYear on Friday, but for many Asian Americans, this year’s holiday is marked by anxiety and unease, a stark contrast to the usually hopeful attitudes for luck and prosperity. 🧧🧵 by @johannacli:
1/ Ever since the coronavirus pandemic began, for business owners in Chinatown, life has been harder than ever.
2/ “We’re trying to be as hopeful as we can because that’s what the New Year is – having hope that the new year will be better. But realistically, the next three or four months will be very tough for us.” – Patrick Mock, manager of 46 Mott Bakery in NYC

#LunarNewYear is just around the corner. What will the Year of the Ox bring? Some optimism, because the sheer chaos of the previous Year of the Rat won’t happen again for another 60 years, Chinese astrologers say.

Story by @joannachiu
Besides COVID-19, astrologers have pointed out that the first Opium War, the American Revolution and a famine in India that killed as many as 10 million all happened during the so-called “Year of the Gengzi,” which occurs once every 60 years.
Though many Chinese people dismiss such beliefs as superstition, it didn’t help COVID-19 cases spiked right at the beginning of 2020. The #YearoftheOx, which starts Friday, will bring release from the air of depression, but there's more: astrologers say

🚨January 31: Trump signs Presidential Proclamation 9984 responding to coronavirus

This from med journal Stat: "...Mike Cernovich (@Cernovich), a prominent conspiracy theorist and early Trump supporter, had agitated on Twitter for a Chinese travel ban..."
"argumentum ad Cernovich"

'You have only to associate an idea, however loosely, with Mike Cernovich for that idea to be discredited.

Anything that could be remotely imputed to him renders it completely unworthy of further mental consideration'

Thread on internet connectivity in #Wuhan, #China:

Network data from the last ten days show a gradual fall beginning 17 January 2020.

The decline is consistent with population exodus as residents either flee the city closing up shop due to #coronavirus or for #LunarNewYear 📉
Diurnal internet connectivity falls similar to #Wuhan were observed in the US last year corresponding to mandatory hurricane evacuations.

These can be distinguished from power outages and flooding, with #HurricaneDorian the most recent reported 🌪…
Meanwhile the China Education and Research Network #CERNET that connects research facilities and universities has adopted an apparent internet curfew cycle in #Wuhan.

Connectivity falls between 12 am and 6 am daily from 22 January onward for unknown reasons and with no reports📉

[THREAD] China Coronavirus Outbreak
A deadly virus is spreading from Asia, affecting hundreds of people and resulting in dozens of deaths, in what may become a gloabal health epidemic. This thread contains news about the outbreak.
#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus #WarWatch
On Dec 30, 2019, Chinese authorities confirmed cases of pneumonia of unknown cause in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A team of national experts was sent to carry out detection tests. Patients at a local seafood market were put in quarantine.
#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus
Liu Youning, a professor of epidemiology and respiratory medicine, told the Global Times that the #coronavirus found in #Wuhan appears to be far less serious than the virus that caused the severe acute respiratory syndrome (#SARS) or the Middle East respiratory syndrome (#MERS).
