Interesting memoir by a prominent Chinese writer about the early China virus days at the initial epicenter of Wuhan—comparable in size to Chicago. So far (up to entries of early February) no mention about the authorities then welding virus sufferers into their apartment buildings, presumably to enforce quarantine. Maybe mention will come later in the book. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Finally, on Valentine’s Day, she wrote this: We need “just a little more humanistic spirit…just enough so that when someone is infected with coronavirus, a crowd of people doesn’t end up sealing their front door with a steel rod so that everyone is locked inside…” Note it’s not the authorities who do it but just “a crowd of people.”
