China’s foreign ministry denied on Thursday that U.S. diplomats in the country had been required to take anal swab tests for COVID-19, following media reports that some had complained about the procedure.

U.S. media outlet Vice on Wednesday cited a State Department official as saying the test was given in error and that China had said it would stop such tests on U.S. diplomats.

I can just see the smile on so many American faces when Biden orders the tit for tat response. AllChinese in USA must be anal probed. By a large Cartman doll. Dressed like Edward Scissorhands.

Evidently not.

Btw, that cheap omnipresent Uni-President “tea” product may be one of the worst drinks on the market. :upside_down_face:

This isn’t in the news yet (maybe). I drove by a minivan that apparently blew up and was engulfed in flames in Hualien on the Blue 9 route.

Plumes of black smoke were rising up from it. Glass was all over the road.

That sounds awful.

I hope everyone was OK. :slightly_frowning_face:
