Extreme weather doesn't discriminate
Meanwhile, COVID-19 is now becoming more and more ready to be air-borne. Soon it will make into the news (I read the academic papers first-handed so I am often weeks quicker than the news) though I wonder how many would dare to make an honest report (edit: turns out to be 200+) to the as-usual-the-last-to-know WHO. Disasters brought by extreme weather will prove controlling the pandemic more and more difficult as people run around for their lives while more and more resources become increasingly limited, in addition to the resulting dirty mess which is an established ground for another epidemic.
This is alarming since cities are going to be unsafe when things go really wrong. How can you feed a large number of people when more and more of them are sick and contagious? The COVID-19 has proven to be more infectious in the metropolitan setting (not surprising, huh).
When the supply chain goes down and won't be recovering anytime soon, how are the city dwellers going to grow enough vegetables (which cannot be stored like the grains) in their home to stay healthy? The epidemic won't last very long compared to how long, say, rice or meat, can be stored but certainly much longer than how long fresh vegetables can be kept with the essential nutritional elements.
Hong Kong, with a population of nearly 8 million, will not get itself out of such contingency unless 3 million of us leave and disperse around the world. Dying together solves none of our problems and are only creating sound reasons for international military involvement, which would easily result in WWIII. I advise those capable of surviving elsewhere leave in an orderly manner at their first chance.
I am NOT joking or being sarcastic. If people from a developed region die in hordes without committing any substantial violence, this is the greatest breach of any common sense version of national security.
There are just too many things that is above politics when it comes to survival tactics during catastrophe.
I will repeat: extreme weather doesn't discriminate.
