Chinese or Westerners are more crisis-conscious, and it has recently become a hot topic due to the spread of pneumonia. Many Chinese living in Western countries are worried about the local people's ignorance of the spread of the virus. Take Germany as an example. Although there are more than 120 confirmed cases (Editor’s note: The article was written on March 2), Germans generally still do not wear masks; employees in catering establishments also have no special precautions. People still go out to eat and drink.
However, many Europeans still hold the mentality company banner design of being at ease with it, insisting that the coronavirus is not as serious as the seasonal flu, and that the mortality rate is very low, so there is no need to worry about it, just live a normal life. On the contrary, the local Chinese who lived in the area were relentless, they searched for masks and disinfectants before the virus spread in Europe, and persuaded German family members, partners and friends to take preventive measures. But at that time, most Germans still didn't feel the fear of the virus, and took the advice of these Chinese people to heart.
Now that the virus has finally broken out in Europe, some German talents have gradually realized that their sense of crisis is low. There is a myth among some Hong Kong people that children and young people in Hong Kong are spoiled and spoiled. On the contrary, children in Europe and the United States have learned to live independently since childhood. For example, kindergarten has taught them to explore forests and recognize flowers and trees. In elementary school, they learned multiple sports and outdoor survival skills. In middle school, they have already climbed mountains and mountains. Furthermore, Western education values independent thinking, so these Hong Kong people feel that young people under Western education must have a higher awareness of crisis than Hong Kong people, and their ability to judge against adversity must be better than Hong Kong people.
