I came across this list of SARS blogs, several of them emanating from mainland China, where a few intrepid bloggers seem to be circumventing the official Beijing party line with man-on-the-street reports of what it's really like to be living in the grip of a mass panic.
Wang Jian Shuo reports:
"My car is disinfected every morning. This actually started from this Monday. The seat covers are washed daily, while they are changed not frequently before - about once every week. We are also required to open the window during driving."
... I can still smell the vinegar-like disinfectant in the car.
on a totally unrelated note, Wang Jian Shuo also has several gorgeous photos of Tibet's Kham province.
