Forums > Living in Kunming > New code at subway station?

I had the opportunity to use the new code this morning at the subway. Thanks to Giggi I had already installed the mini program and had my wife help me read the Chinese for setup.

At the subway (east bus station), passengers were not scanning and nobody stopped them, but I scanned in anyway.

Coming back from Tuodong Lu subway station the guards were insisting on scanning both codes.

The PSB also has a second QR code to scan now.

Again, it's in Chinese only, which I can't read, and nobody could guide me through it, so they just waved me through.

Yesterday when I took the bus the driver was making everyone scan in.

It brought up the same green screen I've seen before, but when I checked recently used mini-programs a different one was on the top of the list.

With no (reported) community transmission in Kunming it sounds like they're ramping up prevention efforts ahead of the spring festival holiday.

Forums > Travel Yunnan > Covid testing, Anyone had one done in Kunming.

@tigertiger - I may have discovered why the hospital was so busy for covid tests.

My wife was at Yan'an hospital yesterday for an appointment.

They're requiring everyone entering the hospital as a patient or visitor to have a test.

She said the line was huge. I can't see just one hospital doing this in isolation.

You've misinterpreted my comment of "I would bet you'll be the only one on the flight".

Tigertiger's requirement for a covid test was because he was a foreigner, and therefore most likely the only one on the flight.

I've been on many flights in China in regular times that were absolutely full, but I was the only foreigner.

Had my first ever visit to Slice of Heaven last night for a group party. Barbara recognized me as a newcomer and immediately came to welcome me and introduce herself.

While speaking with her at the counter, a server walked past with a pizza for one table. The aroma immediately caught my attention. It was awesome.

Our group shared 4 different pizzas. All were amazing. I think the sauce really makes the difference since it was very flavourful. I also put back to cups of cappuccino. I guess they must have fixed problems noted in other reviews because I found it to be quite good.

If I lived closer I would be a regular here.
