What do you people think, or have read about, natural resistance that might be developed among populations for this virus?

Specifically I'm thinking that in certain (mainly western) countries the policies seem to reflect assumptation that that it's here to stay, and their main goal is to slow the infection rate within their borders so that their healthcare system can answer to the demand of serious cases.

Unlike countries like China where the healthcare system was probably never going to be up to the task, and therefore completely stopping the spread was considered a necessity.

Given this difference between countries, will some populations in general have better natural resistance in coming years, while in other countries more people will suffer also in future seasons unless prevented with vaccinations among general population.

@vetimo: "1. People are now not required to put on masks in open, outdoor spaces."

Were they ever?

I'm sure nearly everyone did and will keep doing it, but at least GoKunming's official articles only mentioned this requirement for public and non-public transport vehicles and related venues - no word about it being required in open outdoor spaces.

Looking ahead the current situation a bit - those of you working in education, have you heard anything about schools (K-12) possibly cancelling summer holidays to make up for this long spring break?

Forums > Living in Kunming > Wearing Masks

It would be nice if everyone had access to as many masks as they want, or the healthcare that they want, the education that they want, or the food that they want.

In this picture what is common among all states, whether western, asian or african, is that when something is not economically or practically viable, they start adjusting what people should want.

Costs financial or other are a heavy constrain.

I'm curious whether the separate website for Lijiang means less Lijiang-specific content appearing on GoKunming. For me personally it would be double to effort to navigate two websites, which may be why I will not frequent on the Lijiang site.

So basically will the information on the two sites be mirrored so that those who only read GoKunming, may catch all/most of the content about Lijiang as well?

"support the website by making an account, asking questions in the forum, leaving reviews and using the classifieds section to find a job, sell your stuff or rent an apartment."

This (or rather what is not included in that list of to-dos) sums the criticism that I personally have toward the whole ordeal, and how GoKunming (out of no choice I understand) had to respond to it with rest of the nation.
Ask questions and increase revenue, but feel free to avoid discussing and, heaven forbid, debating anything.

Not sure if this applies to Italy visas, but for many other European countries:

The Joint Visa Application Center that used to be in Beichen, is now relocated to an office building at intersection of .Shibo Road and Bojin Avenue.

New address:
1501D, Building A, Low Carbon Business Center, No. 12 Shibo Road, Kunming City, Yunnan Province 650000 China


I'm not a big fan of croissants anyway, and donuts I have not found in either of the establishments you mentioned.

@Dolphin: "savouring the croissant helps to cultivate appreciation. ie appreciating simple things rather than always feeling discontent that you don't have enough"

Perhaps, but it equally helps to cultivate ignorance of all the labor that has been put into creating that experience for you. At least I would allow you to feel discontent on behalf all the people who don't have enough, whether they had part in creating the croissant or not.

I't shouldn't anymore be about what you have or don't have, but what the other 7.7 billion (minus 1) people have or don't have. That's where the musings of Buddha (as quoted above) go wrong in this day and age.
