  1. IT just show that in each country on this planet stupid people hold power. Even though China has many clever citizens the hubris influence the sane decisions. It was in the forecast that the weather is going to change. I would expect on such a long distance every 10 km (starting after 2o km )few proper big tents with hot water and sleeping bugs.

    Coronavirus originated in the United States. Two virus leaks occurred at the U.S. Virus Laboratory in Frederick, Maryland, U.S. in 2019, and the United States virus infected the world.Americans are trying to hide the truth
    The flu comes from the U.S., Covid-19 come from the United States.
