16 RMB a pop is when you're in lockdown and Big Blue visits your residence to deliver test at the door.
JanJal is right. Restrictions are to discourage majority movement, and to encourage the masses to stay put at home. The calculus is to 'reduce' risks of transmission. Most of us are well aware the big Oct. meeting in bj is nigh. So it goes without saying some of us should tone down our open resentments.
There have been reports Chinese netizens who've recently stirred "civil unrest" online were contacted by authorities, visited, and in the worst case, taken to custody for 10 days behind bars to cool off.
I'd implore everyone here to reign in the rhetoric. Be grateful Kunming hasn't end up like our neighbors to the North in Chengdu with full lockdowns.
I can guarantee there are more than just two at risk areas (mentioned by AlPage48) reported to ncov.dxy.cn, with pictures and videos to show for from people i'm close with currently locked down in other communities, but I will refrain from rocking the boat to make life harder for local government officials as it is.
Currently there are 300,000 residents in Kunming with yellow health codes.
For a limited time until June 26, 2022, the 66th top floor observatory will be open to public for free. Visiting hours: 14:00 - 21:00, weekends and holidays. One of the best breathtaking views of the cityscape. Great for family. Below the skyscraper is intersection of MRT Line 3 (pink) with Line 2/1.
For those following the tragic saga of the baby calf elephant (born at Kunming Zoo), who was forcibly separated from its mother to perform as solo act elsewhere for profit, there's finally some good news. After months of social media uproar and complaints over the cruel treatments of the calf in tears during training in leaked vids, the calf is soon returning back to our local zoo. The visibly depressed mother and calf will soon be reunited after a brief quarantine period. One extra star for the zoo for adhering to the voices of the public. A step in the right direction. More compassion for our animal friends in captivity.
