    Yes, they're saying cold symptoms, and very well may be just a common cold or flu. Could also be COVID-19, we don't know. But likely he got sick meeting and greeting large groups of people in Italy, and both him and most people did not wear masks. Seemed like a decision to quell fears in people rather than putting his health at a priority.

    Working "with" the outbreak is a good choice of words. I thought only mainlanders had such an infallable/unflappable view of their govenment.

    Thus far BC (just 1 province) has done more tests than ALL of the USA. And US hospitals happy to bill $3000US for a test! Meanwhile in South Korea drive thru tests are avilable for free.

    Get further out. We went hiking at the weekend at Shing Mun reservoir and it was very busy. But once we got past Lead mine Pass it tailed off and we were alone for the next 2 hours!

    I found the same with Chinese/Japanese tourists in Yosemite in the past.

    Most locals will only go an hour from the bus stop. Don’t go to the obvious as well, like the Peak!
