I was reading some first person accounts of the post-lockdown in Wuhan.

This one caught my eye...

YI, 23, STUDENT- Iím living in my grandmotherís old home. I moved in after my mother passed away.
In late January, she began to have a fever. A week before, Iíd heard about an illness that was spreading, but everyone was saying it was a rumor, and the people who started it had been arrested.
The official line spreads fast, with a reminder that spreading anything but the official line results in arrest.
On February 3, my birthday, my mother was having difficulty breathing, but she kept trying to convince me, ďItís nothing. Itís nothing.Ē
Say mothers everywhere.

Meanwhile, racist stereotyping continues. Racists call it "Kung-Flu". Apparently we must blame Yi and his peers.
