Forums > Living in Kunming > Many Condo complexes (小区) are giving Covid testing

@AlPage48 Yes, but the map showing the outbreak locations (which is presumably where they live?) places all 7 in a small area to the west of Tongde....1.7km as the crow flies from me, but around 3km by road from where I live. The text message indicated

it was related to Tongde, but perhaps their travel history included Beichen?

I have not been to Tongde for 2-3 weeks, but last Thursday travelled by bus and metro under Beijing Lu/through Baiyun Lu station/passed Tongde, but none of my friends who I met on Thursday who also travelled through Baiyun Lu station the same day received the text. I believe it is based on where you live not where you travelled, as we live in Beichen (Panlong). The same political district (but several km) as the outbreak. My wife also received the text and she has not been anywhere outside Beichen for 2 weeks. NB my health code has not changed colour...yet. (24/8 07:05)....

I have visited Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen and Kunming is much better planned than any of those cities. It is also much cheaper to live in. The roads here are wide and almost all main roads have segregated cycle lanes. As a keen cyclist, it is far better to cycle here than in any of the other cities. It is also flat here and mostly low humidity. The high altitude also helps strengthen a healthy body and make you more resilient to infection - and makes you feel younger. Of course, there are less foreigners here than the other cities, so it is great being more popular!!! The locals here are much friendlier to foreigners than in the other cities, owing to our "curiosity" value. And of course the climate here is way better than the other cities. I have no idea why Kunming isn't number one best city to live in every year. I have travelled around the world to around 50 countries and Kunming is way better than any other city to live in for a retired foreigner!
