Yesterday was the first time I have been out since I last went out on New Year’s Day. Everyone must stay at home because of the virus. China has contained the virus to some degree so a lot of people have returned to work. Yesterday, I had meeting with my exhibition/business partner. I drove to his office. There were so many people so I had difficulties finding a parking space. I took thirty minutes to find parking. We discussed the work we can do in this situation. We talked about the future market. Because the situation is getting serious around the world, my business partner in America lost all his projects. Italy,Iran, Korea and many other countries are experiencing the virus outbreak. My friend in America told me the supermarket was empty. People bought everything. A month before, he told me that if l wanted anything,  he would send it to me. I hope the situation will be better soon. Then. I can visit other countries and continue the project.
