For anyone who hasn't heard: in addition to being Qingming, today will also be an official national day of mourning for China's coronavirus victims.
From China Daily ( govt.chinadaily.com.cn/[...] ):
"During the commemoration, national flags will fly at half-mast across the country and in all Chinese embassies and consulates abroad, and public recreational activities will be suspended across the country.
At 10:00 am on April 4, Chinese people nationwide will observe three minutes of silence to mourn for the diseased, while air raid sirens and horns of automobiles, trains and ships will wail in grief."
I would like to suggest that foreigners conduct ourselves with an appropriate level of solemnity today, especially when in public and during the three minutes of silence. I say this in the same spirit as @colinflahive's post last month about wearing masks: www.gokunming.com/en/forums/thread/16344/wearing-masks
