Let’s do the math:

Population in China: 1.4B (as of March, 2020);
Population elsewhere: 7.8B – 1.4B = 6.4B (as of March, 2020).

Confirmed COVID-19 cases in China: x (regardless of media reports);
Confirmed COVID-19 cases elsewhere: 650K (as of March 30, 2020).

x = ?



This is the first comprehensive handbook compiled by Chinese healthcare workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Jack Ma, the co-founder and former executive chairman of Alibaba Group, endorsed and funded this project through his foundation. It aims to provide guidance for COVID-19 fighters all over the world.

My uncle: uploaded a video to our family chat group
My uncle: Look! This is Italy! Corpses dumped everywhere. What a sight!

My uncle: What’s actually taking place in Italy must be way more horrid than a TV series!
Me: 🙄

Screw the crackheads who say “If I get corona, I get corona” or “it’s nothing serious.” It’s not YOU get COVID-19. We won’t give you a damn. It’s if you get coronavirus, your grandma, grandpa, senior neighbors, etc. will all be in danger. Don’t be such a jerk as if you were the center of the world. Stay home and continue social distancing.
