China hasn't had an official COVID casualty for months.
They know what they're doing.... probably.

I should point out that "revenge travel" is an inaccurate translation (it's closer to "make-up travel") and it is happening entirely domestically.
 
2020-10-01 1:24:54 PM  
In a move that couldn't possibly backfire for the chinese populace...

//dear lord. I'm almost more convinced that it was intended to be a "solution" to their overpopulation problem

Problem with Chinese revenge travel is you just want more revenge an hour later.

Why? Community transmission in China is largely suppressed (even by international standards), and mask-wearing is prevalent.
 
2020-10-01 1:28:11 PM  
China has reserves. Many, many, many reserves... this mindset underpins a lot of their short to intermediate planning. Long term planning is 50 plus years in the future.
 
2020-10-01 1:29:56 PM  
Revenge travel: a trend watchers are predicting might sweep the states once the caution around Covid-19 subsides.   In a nutshell, revenge travel is taking extra trips or splurging more than you ordinarily would, all because you've been deprived of travel for so long.

I never liked big crowds even if they don't have disease. It's normal in places like China or India but I couldn't handle it on a regular basis.

They learned from previous epidemics like SARS. The people were more pliable because they'd experienced this just 2 decades ago.

Yeah that's fair. I had a buddy who did a summer working in India for his job. He came back with photos very similar to this (though obviously this is a worst-case scenario, like your local bus or subway at rush hour):

The worst thjng about being a low-wage worker is that you have to spend all your money on drugs to make it tolerable.

So just like any other job then.

No shiat! At work today we have had a lot of the senior staff in, in total about 70 people here out of the 400-500 in pre-covid times. The amount of anxiety I have over that has made me hide in my office or the dock all day. That picture just wants me to go home and hide under my bed for three months.

As with many things in China, the official narrative and reality are not in sync. They publicly announce the holidays, but they're followed up by "adjusted working days" - which are usually over the weekend - so you don't actually net that much.

Why? The US statistics collection is decentralized and Hospitals have little incentive to lowball the numbers, especially if they want to get paid by insurance companies.

Do you have any, real and actual proof that China exaggerated their numbers by a significant amount? Let me answer that for you: No, you haven't because there isn't any.

The simple truth is that China's reporting, after the initial few weeks of farkups, has been fairly truthful and largely in line with the news coming out of China from other credible sources.  I've been trying to explain this ever since February, while debunking all the conspiracy theories, bullshiat news and other taken-out-of-context stories that people have been repeating here over and over again about China, but most people just don't like to hear China is doing some things better as the U.S. for some reason.

The truth of the matter is that China has implemented effective measures with which the population largely complied (and no, not because they get shot otherwise).  There are still some local flare-ups, which now are dealt with quickly.

As result, life has returned to pretty much to normal in China's big cities already months ago with no significant outbreaks.
