    2 biggest cities in China

    How did Hong Kong and Shanghai avoid this virus shutting them down? I heard they haven't had any kind of lockdown.

    With their proximity being so close to Wuhan its amazing they haven't had the kind of outbreaks seen in Italy, Spain and NYC....

    Did China manage to contain it to stay just in Wuhan?

    Hong Kong is not in China....I think it is just a region and not actually part of it

    I know China wants to try to control them

    I was there in the 80's and back then they had nothing at all to do with China

    i understand they operate a little differently but people usually associate the 2 together and they are about as close as you can get geographically

    Either Cuomo and Deblasio are the two most inept rulers on the planet or China is straight up lying and omitting numbers. At this point either of those outcomes is plausible. China aside, I still wanna know why NYC is such a shit show but SF, denser and Tokyo, more populated aren't. It's not looking good for NYC leadership comparatively.
