The Chongqing Trinity

Top to bottom: forest fires; power cuts; PCR testing
This was a few days ago in Chongqing, central Sichuan province, central China, a city of over 30 million. Temps in the mid 40s. Waters in the Yangtze are at the lowest levels in a century. Hence the power cuts. 

Says Manya Koetse:

Chongqing is dealing with a lot: the wildfires are burning, the power cuts are leaving parts of the city in the dark, meanwhile the Covid tests are ongoing. (Image on Weibo, it says: mountain fire - power restrictions - nucleic acid)
