Even in the Most Autocratic Nations, You Can Find Heroes

Just amazing;
One of the first Chinese doctors who tried to warn the world about a new coronavirus died on Friday from the illness, prompting an outpouring of sorrow on Chinese social media, as Beijing declared a “people’s war” on the fast-spreading outbreak.

Li Wenliang, 34, was an ophthalmologist at a hospital in Wuhan, the city hardest hit by the outbreak.

He and seven others were reprimanded by Wuhan police last month for spreading “illegal and false” information about the coronavirus after he warned doctors on social media about seven cases of a mysterious new virus to try to help other physicians.

Many ordinary Chinese people on social media described Li as a hero and a tragic figure, reflecting the incompetence of local authorities to tackle the emergence of the virus early in the outbreak.

According to Stanford Medical, It is indeed the ONLY reason this country's women live 10 years longer and weigh an average of 19 kilos lighter than us.

(And by the way, it has totally NOTHING to do with genetics or some secret-exercise and really, EVERYTHING related to "how" they eat.)

P.S, I said "HOW", not "WHAT"...
