…but you survived. Many in China don’t trust the government because of past BS so they don’t trust Chinese vaccines. Add to that the preference for herbal remedies, particularly among the elderly, and you have all the ingredients for a perfect tragedy. Compound that with far less ICU beds on a per capita basis.

Several years ago I read a story about another person in India that built small, simple dams across the drainage ditches. When it rains each dam would create a mini reservoir behind it and after the heavy rains, the water would remain there instead of running off. This would allow the aquifer below to recharge. I think they called these little reservoirs wadi- or something like that. All of this shows that small contributions can add up to big results!
