Now is a good time to travel. Flew from PP to KL2 this morning and everything is quiet. Air Asia plane half full and one guy sitting in a seat in front of me was coughing ten thousand times all the way, so I told the air steward , but he didn't seem interested. Yes, I moved to a seat farther away and for the first time in my life put on a face mask.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

My neighbour lived in China for several years and has friends there still.
She told me about videos they are sharing on WeChat of body bags crammed with four or five people, including babies and children.

Note at the rising daily global reported death rate making the deaths registered in China at their peak look like a minor blip now.

The US is really just beginning mass testing this coming week. Until now only those with flu symptoms AND certain recent travel histories or relations with known Covid-19 cases would be tested, due to lack of accurate test kits. So expect cases in the US to surge by a thousand per day soon as they have in Italy and Iran. Maybe by the tens of thousands per day, according to the Mayor of Seattle. If 14% of those cases are serious/critical, then the emergency health care system basically stops dead when all beds are filled with people with Covid-19 requiring respirators.

You being on the ground "so to speak" what is the scene and now the daily life in Siam Reap? I was heading up to visit the temples but saw the news early morning and decided to wait, seeing what is to be next, if I turn around or not.
Always "hope" but never "expect".

WHO declares virus crisis a pandemic, U.S. stocks plunge
By JAMEY KEATEN, MARIA CHENG and JOHN LEICESTER
6 minutes ago

GENEVA (AP) — The World Health Organization declared Wednesday that the global coronavirus crisis is now a pandemic as U.S. stocks plunged into bear market territory and several American cities joined European counterparts in banning large gatherings.

By reversing course and using the charged word “pandemic” that it had previously shied away from, the U.N. health agency sought to shock lethargic countries into pulling out all the stops.

“We have called every day for countries to take urgent and aggressive action. We have rung the alarm bell loud and clear,” said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the WHO chief.

“All countries can still change the course of this pandemic. If countries detect, test, treat, isolate, trace and mobilize their people in the response,” he said. “We are deeply concerned by the alarming levels of spread and severity and by the alarming levels of inaction.”

After downplaying the threat of the virus for days, U.S. President Donald Trump was considering a national disaster declaration and new travel advisories. He was scheduled to deliver an Oval Office address to the nation Wednesday night.

For the global economy, virus repercussions were profound Wednesday, with increasing concerns of wealth- and job-wrecking recessions. U.S. stocks wiped out more than all the gains from a huge rally a day earlier as Wall Street continued to reel.

About 6 weeks too late, you useless, feckless bureaucrats. And after criticizing people who correctly warned of this virus as needless fear mongers for the past 2 months. But keep praising China for their response, seeing they bought you years ago.
