I don't think that refutes my points.

Moreover: New York has seen "bodies loaded onto refrigerated morgue trucks by gurney and forklift outside overwhelmed hospitals, in full view of passing motorists." There are corpses lying in the streets in Ecuador. This is not the time to be splitting hairs about whether it's safe for people to inhale out of the same apparatus for the sake of an evening's entertainment.

Do you trust with your life that that will happen in a hygienic way? Seems dubious when highly-trained medical personnel are routinely getting infected. Not to mention that smoking a hookah typically involves more than just touching the nib -- there are other ways that an infection could be spread.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Day of mourning for coronavirus dead

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

"Pain campagnard" (or more commonly "pain de campagne") is a specific name used by bakeries in France for a particular type of bread. Just calling something "country bread" in English could mean anything.
