Cambodia is ‘the lucky country’ with a management like that.
But I thought the Rainman was trying to enter from the Thai boarder ?
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.

Not sure if anyone else watches Tiktoks but there an expat in Wuhan whose coworker is uploading videos on the quarantine. They locked her apartment and the citizens can make grocery orders with limits on how many people can pick up at a time using a number system its interesting to see


Video on the locks

This channel has a Lot of videos of China and what's happening inside

You kind find a lot of videos on people dealing with the quarantine you just have to filter through alot of nonsense 😅

This was filmed in March 2018,

Contagion: The BBC Four Pandemic.

Interesting documentary but you will need a VPN as only available for UK viewing on Iplayer. (I think)

The world will never be the same again.

People welded in their homes - the biggest quarantine in human history.

Don't worry - get used to the new 'normal'

Now the prisons have 'the flu', - hot off the press is the new Chinese Chain Gang - Wuhan Style

The number of cases reported outside of China is ramping up quickly the past couple days. Still very low numbers overall, but let's hope this upward trend doesn't continue.

No cases in Africa outside the ONE case reported in Egypt weeks ago is most likely like utter fantasy. Just no testing there.

North Korea is problematic to get an idea on numbers. Goverment giving the line that they can protect their people and figure remains low.

North Korea has a large daily flow of Chinese in and out on its boarder with China!!!!!!

Very likely they have the virus and with poor health care North Korea is going to be another hot spot.

The UK is well prepared as much research has been done on what they call the number one threat to the population, in a study completed in 2018 it was estimated that up to 43 million could be infected before a vaccine was developed leading to a death rate of 886,000.
