Forums > Living in Kunming > Wearing Masks

I agree with you on mask wearing, however...

colinflahive wrote: "Yes, I know there is little scientific evidence that masks are that useful, at least when used how most of us are using them, and they might even help spread contagions more."

Is the source of this information from the U.S. CDC? They've advised Americans not to wear masks if healthy, but to wear masks only when ill.

As the United States reported 977 new cases and 18 new deaths just yesterday, there are signs that U.S. health officials (e.g. State Dept. of Health) are waking up to the prevalence of asymptomatic cases of transmission. The asymptomatic spreading to 80 contracted attendees of a Biogen tech conference in Massachusetts raised new alarms, though substantial empirical evidence of asymptomatic spreading have already been documented in China, as backed by peer-reviewed studies.

Those who are unknowingly infected yet show no symptoms (asymptomatic), may cough or sneeze viral droplets inside an elevator. Those floating droplets could possibly suspend in air, such that next passengers risk inhaling them. This highlights the importance of mask wearing even if you feel fine.

The point of mask wearing despite feeling healthy is made clear by President Xi as he made victory laps in Wuhan while donning a mask. He is intentionally setting an example to the public at large.

So perhaps no, it is not "only a false sense of control" as some camps in the U.S. would have you believe.

Patrons of will be allowed to dine inside restaurants, not just take out, starting tomorrow throughout most of Kunming.

Is Colin in Thailand, or is he back to open Sal?

Another lead for surgical mask acquisition in less time. Kunming pharmacy chain Yi Xin Tang (一心堂) have been offering 5rmb surgical masks (supposedly imported from abroad). 2 pieces limit for each person, and ID must be presented. Buyers have to first register with the pharmacy then wait for perhaps one week or so for shipment arrival. Ask the Yi Xin Tang pharmacist about this next time you or your wife pass by them.

herenow, thanks for the update.

bucko, back so soon? Safe journey tonight/after midnight/tomorrow morning.

More leads on surgical masks...

The Green Party is a lifestyle store on the second floor of Kunming's Golden Eagle Shopping Center (B annex) where Burger King used to be above Starbucks.

On their WeChat official account, they are selling 50 surgical masks for 125 rmb.

Prices used to be 95 rmb, but demand markup rose to 105, then 115... currently 125 cny.

For those in dire need of surgical masks, you could follow The Green Party WeChat and order online.

Lastly, don't get complacent with hand hygiene and mask donning. The fight is ongoing.

Sure, i'll humor the one who habitually engages in straw man arguments.

This time, inferring that I am painting Igor as a crafty chef trying to fool Chinese people. The reflection in your mirror is the actual culprit throwing ad hominem stones inside a glass cafe. One am I am actively bumping out of goodwill for Igor.

Yes, it is rather pedantic of you to digress and misconstrue my point repeatedly.

First by informing us the French, or half-Sicilian, chef's superb Chinese proficiency as if I was implying otherwise. This subtle name-dropping 411 is another red herring from my argument that Chinese language use is apropos for the Chinese market as locals may not understand French, such my croissant example.

Second, you writing out the more common Chinese term 牛角面包 as an opportunity to boost your own personal ego, while generalizing that everyone knows it as a side swipe to the many expats who may not, in an effort to Cloud my point. But more strategically, to set up your go-to grammar police mode... which is, to dwell on spelling mistakes in not seeing forest for the trees. In your case, actively cutting down saplings in a Brazilian forest fire. Hypocrisy for someone who tells others to find better use of their time.

herenow, you are a bit late to the French sourdough party.

Straw man cloudy is clinging on to erroneous assertions.

But to piggyback off his point, the bulk of Igor's patrons are Chinese. They probably don't understand the word "croissant" unless you label it as 法国羊角面包. Same with the Chinese equivalent name for pain campagnard. We are in Kunming after all. It wouldn't be unreasonable to converse in the local language, as you would say in the outskirts of Paris.

Presenting delicacies with all their international glory, be it slapping a French pastry name, sticking a mini French flag on the bread, or being greeted by an accented, foreign face... may justify the price of an "imported" product or service in the eyes of the typical Chinese consumers.

I get that pricey French cuisine restaurants sporting all French menus come with the territory. The elegant aura of French authenticity in dinning experience... which to my point, is added to the final bill.
