Exciting times for space enthusiasts this month. There will be three Mars launches in the upcoming days. NASA (scheduled for end of this month), UAE (July 20), and China's CNSA (tentative date set for July 23, if not, July 20 - 25).
"On Friday morning, China's fourth Long March-5 rocket, carrying China's Mars probe, was moved to its launch pad ahead of expected liftoff in a few days. The probe consists of an orbiter, a lander and a rover, and China has worked with many European space agencies on this Mars exploration mission."
Payloads from the French Space Agency as well as Australian Aerospace Agency will also be onboard. If launch is successful, the Tianwen-1 (aka Huoxing-1) journey to the red planet will take around 7 months. Wish them luck.

The student "had just flown from Germany and transited through the Netherlands before flying to Beijing."
The student was another imported case. Not local transmission. Thanks to the Chinese government's successful containment efforts, nationwide local infections have been near zero for days as data clearly show.
State news have reported nearly all new confirmed cases outside Wuhan originated abroad. The virus is at our mercy.
Thank you brethren comrades for your hard work in making China the greatest nation. Thank you President Xi Jinping for your successful coordination. JiaYou everyone!
