According to friends in Guangzhou, unknown virus outbroke in Guangzhou in the previous week. It is widely believed that 200 people have been infected in Guangzhou alone till Feb 10 (two days ago) and more in other areas. The official report said there is only 5 died from the virus.
I don’t know the exact number and I don’t believe anyone has the actual number, but it is very true that the virus has caused wide anxiousity in Guangzhou and in other areas in China. My friends in Guangzhou is planning to leave Guangzhou immediately. White vinegar and medicines have been out of stock in all stores. Even the virus harm is not confirmed, the impact is real. I was planning some visits to Guangzhou but I have to postpone the schedule.
There are some street phones of current Guangzhou.
