I'm very proud of all of your strength and dedication during this time of crisis.Many countries originally believed that China was overreacting to the outbreak, but we can clearly see that such measures were necessary and effective towards this terrible situation. The world can look towards all of you and to China as a model of solidarity and tenacity. Let us all be hopeful for a brighter tomorrow.

More and more people are sick in France now. Now, almost impossible to obtain masks or other protective stuff. Only for medical staff and hospitals. The government controls all that now.
That is just the beginning in France and Europe and I think the situation will continue to become worst in the next weeks and months.
I heard that the situation started to improve a little in some parts of China. Good news for everyone.
I hope you and your relatives are all fine and safe.
I believe the light will come back soon for the whole world.
Meanwhile let's continue to be careful and be patient .
