Editors note for March 12, 2020

Dear Access member,

Do not blame Chinese people for the coronavirus. No exceptions.” That’s a plea from blogging lawyer Dan Harris (not a panda hugger by any means). He’s right.

Our word of the day is from Xinhua News Agency: “The peak of the current epidemic has passed” (本轮疫情流行高峰已经过去 běn lún yìqíng liúxíng gāofēng yǐjīng guòqù).
