Landed Shanghai, Customs officer glances at my passport, stands up and shouts "clear the line behind him, he's an American!" And settles in. Didn't take too long, maybe 15 mins, but lots of personal questions, including "which US political party are you affiliated with?"

Many of my friends in Shanghai still talk about last year’s very hard lockdown. For some, it lingers - clearly it’s hard to move on from. It comes up in conversation most days - the struggle to get food, the fear of being taken away etc etc. Shanghai has a long way to go yet.
A lot of my China/Shanghai friends on Twitter are hesitant to keep telling their Covid/Lockdown stories because it’s an “old story” But it’s a story that needs to be told, again and again Please keep telling these stories, they are important Give us updates

I just placed a grocery order from an Aldi 2km away on Meituan and it arrived in ELEVEN MINUTES. The drive itself takes like 8 minutes. That means the driver was already in the store, and the staff took 3 minutes to assemble my order? Why would anyone leave their home? lol

The ‘disinfection robot’. Not sure if it does much good in a crowded mall.

This is shocking, a far bigger government scandal than the Zahawi or Sharp affairs, important though they both are.
The UK claims its trying to stamp out libel tourism and lawfare, but a new leak has shown that the government waived sanctions to allow Prighozin, Putin’s chef, to pay for UK lawyers to sue Elliot Higgins of Bellingcat in a totally vexatious libel suit opendemocracy.net/en/prigozh…

-53°!! I visited in January 2021 when the temperature was lurking at -40°C and that was enough to freeze my eyelashes after about a minute outside.

Over the weekend, China’s health authorities updated their estimate to 80 percent of the population (that’s 1.12 billion people) infected to date with Covid in this last surge (link in Chinese); m.weibo.cn/detail/4860354171…
Breathtaking: @EmilyZFeng reports an estimated one billion people in China contracted COVID in the past month. Official stats say few have died since the government lifted restrictions; but independent estimates calculate 33,000 deaths per day. @MorningEdition @NPR @UpFirst
