    I saw that video but I think and it appears to implicate various people working FOR certain US government agencies of much less grave violations (but not at the level of intentionally causing a pandemic) during the Obama administration but I’m sure many will use videos like this it to try to relieve the Chinese government of responsibility. After all, they would much prefer to make the evil United States a scapegoat and I can understand why people often think along these irrational lines. The Dr. is not claiming that the release was intentional by anyone; she claims that some scientists like Fauci are trying to profit from the virus release, as she claims Fauci and others have in the past. I have no opinion on that; I don’t know. She seems sincere, having apparently had her work stolen from her by established corporate researchers. Again, no opinion. Maybe true. I could believe her on that. She sure seems to believe it. To me, the video just adds to the conspiracy theories of the day by implication, not fact.Actual conspiracies exist sometimes as well but the video does not come close to establishing the theory presented by the interviewer as indisputable fact. Fauci has a low level of trust amongst the American people but: Dr. Fauci did not conspire with Bill Gates to infect the whole world so they could sell a vaccine. There is no conspiracy to hide the beneficial effects of hydrochloroquine; scientists are still testing the drug and as fast as the public wants the results, conclusions on its safety and efficacy are not established yet. This is not an established conspiracy either. Certain researchers may be guilty of illegal transportation of micro biology materials back and forth between the USA and China (under investigation) but nobody is saying these materials were covid or even generic Coronavirus themselves, just micro biological materials. If such materials were shown to be bio weapons, big problem fiir the university professor and other researchers themselves. That would be treason. But, more likely, it is the much more boring, benevolent scenario of vaccine development. It is still illegal to import/export such materials without a license. They were apparently careless while transport the materials in their luggage (but nothing dangerous apparently escaped). Such violations of import export laws generally happen in the interest of saving time, as I have read. I think the woman is very sincere but I think the interviewer presents a case that is beyond what she is actually claiming, if you watch it. Most likely, Fauci is a stockholder in medical companies that would benefit from research at the Wuhan lab, and he shouldn’t be holding stock in such companies because, in his position, that could be an actual or perceived conflict of interest *by an individual citizen*, not the government that he is a citizen if. But you say you think “the US” has a lot to answer for? I think China has a lot to answer for given their KNOWN coverup of the initial epidemic in Wuhan and anyone saying otherwise is just as bad as the propaganda arm of the China CPP who is now in a very embarrassing and defensive position. But think what you want, I believe the woman is telling the truth as she knows it but that does not implicate the US Obama administration or any other previous one under which most of this research occurred. Neither China nor the US had any interest in causing this pandemic.

    The document from the Governor uses the word "co-morbidity" to describe an at risk peson. According to good old Google; co-mordity is a person with 2 or more chronic illness.
    This can be basically interpreted to mean if you are living with a sickly person you should stay home to.

    I'm not going to get too excited about the new rules until at least version 2.0 or 3.0.

    Might be better to turn up anonymously, at first! We could then play 'who's who'.

    In all seriousness (not much of that about), I'd been thinking it might be good for as many members of the forum as possible (or motivated) to get together for a beer or three when this is all over. Maybe putting some faces to names and having a chinwag might expel some of the old preconceptions we each have about the various nationalities here....and if we drink enough, we could have the fisticuffs after.

    Just an idea to float for those who might be up for it.

    Same at hypermart. Asked my ID and didn't let me enter. Said I have to send my wife (so she can bring corona at home). I went to bureau of immigration for visa extension (took hours), seniors everywhere in the streets, queues outside the stores, jams in downtown, but everybody wear masks.
