I had test in January

it seems like progressed 1 or 2 levels.

the people go to bund to watch the fireworks. when it finish the people went back home so there are too much people so a stampede happened.

every month we have to put money in our social security and the social security includes money for losing job so if you lost your job you can get money from the organizer.

In some towns which is very poor this thing will happen and the people can get food from the government.

if you just go to somewhere in china you don’t need to quarantine but if you are from the other country you have to.

I will be scared everyday because I think he will very hard.
