And 21 million cell phones just POOF disappeared in China, and everyone in China pretty much has their cell phone glued to their head, so what happened to those 21 million people
The question must be asked then. Was the original outbreak so bad that millions died before the virus mutated to something less virulent?
“And 21 million cell phones just POOF disappeared in China, and everyone in China pretty much has their cell phone glued to their head, so what happened to those 21 million people?
In Hong Kong, there are an average of 3.8 cellphones per person (According to the SCMP several years ago)Kids in HK/China/Taiwan/Singapore have a cell phone just to talk to friends and another to talk to parents. Teenagers will have 3, one for parents, one for friends and one for boy/girlfriends to call. Business people will have an official company phone and a personal phone. Overseas Chinese will sometimes have a Hong Kong or mainland cell phone to talk to banks or other type things from the US or Canada because the bank won’t deal with a nonlocal number.
Many (probably most) of these are pay as you go monthly accounts, with no-contract plans. If the shop is closed because of quarantine the plan lapses and the phone goes dead.
There is probably very little correlation between defunct cell phone nimbers and deaths.
