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.

The gravity-defying, floating Hallelujah Mountains in James Cameron's Avatar film franchise is also fictional, but based off of the majestic beauty of Zhangjiajie National Forest Park in Hunan.

Nature of the cosmos has continuously shown itself more miraculous than our human imagination.

An article titled "In search of the real Shangri-La" on Lost Horizon and Shanghai-la was republished three days ago on the Telegraph:

www.telegraph.co.uk/china-watch/travel/the-real-shangri-la/

"'The place described in the book Lost Horizon has never been disclosed, but we knew it was Muli and the surrounding area' - Xuan Ke, son of Joseph Rock's secretary who organised the translation of Lost Horizon into Mandarin in the 1970s"

Just returned. If all goes well, the high speed rail (HSR) from Kunming to Shangri-La is scheduled to run next year.

In the second to last paragraph, it's difficult to imagine any trains would run through Deqen ["Deqin"] given its challenging mountain terrains and its "godly mountain" (神山) reputation given by locals. Townsfolk are wary of the environmental degradation caused by over-tourism in the event of a HSR station perched along their sacred Deqen mountain range. Although Shangri-La to Tibet HSR is planned which seemingly passes through that NW direction. An update on that would be appreciated.

Between Shangri-La and Deqen is Balagezong Shangri-La Grand Canyon National Park, This 4-starred attraction opened to public just last year with deeper mountainous road accessibility than ever before. The grand canyon view near the summit is spectacularly surreal. FIY, for 70 bucks more per day, local guides will take you further than park shuttles normally traverse by hiking special paths.

GoKunming (or affiliates) should definitely do a piece on Balagezong. The local hero/entrepreneur who spent a decade depleting his entire fortune (~40M) and borrowing hundreds of millions to connect his remote mountainous village to the world ought to be featured.
