More Chinese Cities Under Quarantine; Wenzhou Allows Only 1 Person per Household Outdoors
In the past few weeks, the viral pneumonia has quickly spread from Wuhan City, Hubei Province, where the disease first broke out, to all of China and more than 20 countries and regions. Official figures report more than ten thousand confirmed cases, but Wuhan residents say that the true scale of the outbreak is far worse than what authorities described.
About 560 miles away from Wuhan, the city of Wenzhou in Zhejiang Province, located on the country’s southeastern coast, has begun issued travel restrictions.
The city, which has 8.29 million residents according to the latest official statistics, shut down its public transportation system on Feb. 1.
The following day, the city government published two new regulations. The first rule requires that only one person within each family household can go outdoors to shop for basic necessities. In addition, that designated person can only go out once every two days.
“No other travel is allowed except to get medical treatment; do tasks related to disease control; and for people who work in important sectors related to people’s livelihood.”
That rule, which took effect at midnight Feb. 1, runs to midnight Feb. 8.
The second regulation shut 46 of the city’s 55 highway entrances as of 10 a.m. Feb. 2. People wishing to use the highway can only use the nine permitted entrances.
Other cities in Zhejiang also published similar travel bans, such as Yiwu and Wenling, on the same day. Yiwu also banned people without a local “hukou,” or household registration, from entering the city.
In the epicenter of Wuhan and other cities in Hubei Province, roads have been closed and checkpoints set up to prevent vehicles from traveling.
For example, the Huanggang City government announced on Jan. 30 that no vehicles can use the roads, except “those for outbreak prevention and control, medical rescue, basic needs, and emergency rescue.”
In Wuhan, scores have died from the virus.
On Feb. 1, Chinese dissident Han Lianchao posted an official notice from the Chinese Funeral Association, which was originally published on an internal news bulletin earlier that day.
The notice asked for other funeral homes around the country to donate supplies to funeral homes in Wuhan, such as body bags, goggles, protective suits, and disinfectants.
Hong Kong-based Initium Media reported on Jan. 26 all 14 cremation chambers in the Hankou funeral home are operating 24 hours a day, seven days per week.
Before the outbreak, the business operated its cremation chambers for four hours per day, five days per week, the report said.
On Feb. 2, Wuhan health authorities released a notice explaining that each district government will arrange all diagnosed coronavirus patients; patients suspected of contracting the coronavirus; patients who have a fever; and the close contacts of coronavirus patients to be quarantined inside hospitals and hotels, where they will receive treatment. The addition of facilities that were not previously designated to treat coronavirus patients indicates that the outbreak has become more severe.
On social media, family members of the quarantined patients said that conditions inside the facilities are poor, with many not receiving proper treatment.
Chinese independent magazine Caijing also reported on Jan. 31 that coronavirus patients in Wuhan are having difficulty receiving treatment due to all hospitals being at capacity.
The report quoted a doctor who has treated patients in a Wuhan hospital since Jan. 21: “Our hospital beds are fully occupied by patients, medical staff have to work day and night, and many of us have infected each other with the virus.”
He said there are 10 doctors and 20 nurses working in his department. By Jan. 29, seven of them were diagnosed with the novel coronavirus. Furthermore, 61 medical staff from the hospital were diagnosed by Jan. 27.
The doctor said they lack human resources and medical supplies. Because of the limited hospital beds, most of the patients cannot be treated at the hospital.
And although the medical staff believe the patients to be infected with the coronavirus, they cannot fully diagnose them.
“Our hospital has 600 beds for coronavirus patients… [The city government] only allows each department to use diagnosis kits to detect three to five patients every day… In other words, most of our 600 patients can only be designated as possible cases,” the doctor explained.
The doctor said that only when one of the hospitalized patients have died and a bed has been freed up, can they arrange for a patient in very severe condition to be treated in the hospital.
Combating human trafficking and disappearances of refugee children
The Council of Europe should “do more to combat human trafficking and to ensure that its legal standards are adequate and implemented by all member States”, the Assembly declared today during a joint debate.
In an adopted resolution, based on the report prepared by Vernon Coaker (United Kingdom, SOC), the Assembly noted with deep concern the high numbers of victims of human trafficking in Europe, “of which the largest proportion concerns the exploitation of the prostitution of others, forced labour and organ trafficking as well as trafficking for the purpose of forced marriage and illegal adoption”.
Preventing trafficking and providing protection to victims “must be of highest priority”, the parliamentarians said. For this purpose, member States should in particular ensure that victims of human trafficking are not penalised, that they receive adequate health services and legal assistance, and that witness protection programmes exist for their testimony against human traffickers.
During the same debate, the Assembly called on national parliaments and governments of the Member States to do “whatever is necessary and required in the best interests of the child” to avoid the disappearance of thousands of child refugees and migrants around the world.
While recalling that all Council of Europe member states are parties to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and therefore must uphold the best interests of children as a primary consideration, the parliamentarians called on governments to ensure that reception conditions and care for child migrant and refugees fulfil the basic rights and needs of these people.
The adopted text, based on the report prepared by Serap Yasar (Turkey, NR), underlines that “on no account should children be placed in detention” and refugee and migrant children should be “accommodated as far as possible with their families”. International cooperation between the police and the judicial authorities should be strengthened to prevent their disappearance, and civil society organizations helping to find them should be supported in their work.

Human trafficking is the crime of stealing a person’s freedom for profit, and it continues to be a widespread global problem. According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, traffickers might use violence, fraud, manipulation, or false promises of well-paying jobs or romantic relationships to lure victims into some type of labor or commercial sexual act (www.dhs.gov/blue-campaign/what-human-trafficking). The International Labor Organization estimates that there are currently 25 million victims of human trafficking around the world.
While human trafficking may sound like a third world problem, you may be surprised to learn it is much closer to home than you think. Within the United States, human trafficking is widely unreported for a variety of reasons, including fear or immigration status, but the ILO estimates that approximately 403,000 persons are trafficked here at any one time. You could be encountering human trafficking in your backyard—no matter where you live or the size of your financial institution.Profits from human trafficking are estimated globally at $150 billion a year and are flowing through the U.S. financial system. As the non-profit anti-trafficking organization Polaris reports, “While there are certainly some completely unbanked traffickers, a significant portion of that overwhelming sum passes through legitimate financial services businesses.”
January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month, and the good news is that the financial industry and especially anti-money laundering professionals, can help stop these criminals with:
- Enhanced awareness and training
- Knowledge of typologies and red flags
- Strong relationships with law enforcement
What is human trafficking?
Understanding and detecting human trafficking starts with dispelling some of the common myths and misconceptions surrounding this form of modern slavery, the fastest-growing criminal activity in the world. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security outlines the following six myths:
- Human trafficking doesn’t occur in the United States. It only happens in other countries. As recently as June, a construction contractor in Northern California was sentenced to eight years in prison after a jury convicted him of obtaining forced labor in a case investigated by the Department of Homeland Security’s Human Trafficking Unit. Evidence at trial showed the contractor had kept 13 undocumented workers he recruited from Mexico in squalid living conditions while making them work as long as 24 consecutive hours, according to prosecutors. He was also ordered to pay nearly $1 million in restitution for unpaid wages.
- Human trafficking victims are only foreign-born individuals and those who are poor. Actually, the U.S. Department of State noted its 2019 Trafficking in Persons Report that a number of international organizations have estimated that human traffickers exploit a majority of their victims without moving them from one country to another.
- Human trafficking is only sex trafficking. Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to exploit someone. It does not have to involve sexual acts. Forced labor is the second most common type of human trafficking, and this can occur in factories, on farms, in construction, in private homes, and other places.
- In order to be considered a victim of human trafficking, individuals must be forced into commercial sex acts. In addition to the other types of human trafficking such as forced labor and debt servitude, any commercial sex act by a minor is human trafficking even without force, fraud, or coercion.
- Human trafficking is the same thing as human smuggling. Human smuggling is a transportation-based crime that requires an illegal border crossing, usually by someone voluntarily being smuggled. Human trafficking does not require a border crossing and is a crime against an involuntary victim. These are not interchangeable terms, although human smuggling can sometimes become human trafficking.
- Human trafficking victims will try to seek help when they are out in public. Victims may be afraid, through coercion or threats of violence against themselves or their families, or they may not be in possession of their identification documents. Fear of law enforcement and/or deportation is a key factor in the reluctance of undocumented people to report their victimization.
The global landscape of trafficking
Clearly, human trafficking is more widespread than many people understand. The victims of human trafficking can be any age, race, or gender, and can be any nationality. However, two out of every three victims worldwide are female, according to the United Nations’ 2018 Global Report on Trafficking in Persons. Sex trafficking is the most detected form of human trafficking globally, with 59 percent of victims trafficked for sexual exploitation, according to the UN report. One out of three victims globally are trafficked for forced labor, and 7 percent for other purposes, including for the removal of organs.
Human trafficking is known to be widespread in certain regions of the world, such as Africa, China, and Russia. The U.S. Department of State’s 2019 Trafficking In Persons Report annually ranks progress by country in the fight against human trafficking. Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo states that “[h]uman trafficking is one of the most heinous crimes on earth,” and encourages us to “band together and build momentum to defeat human trafficking.” He also places some responsibility squarely in the realm of AML when he states that “the use of human trafficking by terrorist groups…acts as a means by which terrorist organizations recruit and finance their operations.”The State Department report breaks countries into three tiers of how well they are complying with global standards:
- Tier 1—Fully complies with standards
- Tier 2—Does not meet standards, but is making significant efforts
- Tier 3 Watch List—Does not meet standards, is making significant efforts, but with significant levels of concern
- Tier 3—Does not comply and is not making efforts
The U.S. is ranked tier 1, with our neighbors Canada and Mexico ranked tiers 1 and 2 respectively. However, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime statistics show that the U.S. is globally one of the destinations for highest concentrations of trafficked victims—those brought across our borders, as well as those within our own communities.
Recent global initiative
The United Nations, at their September General Assembly meeting in New York, released a report called Unlocking Potential: A Blueprint for Mobilizing Finance Against Slavery and Trafficking. This important report has now formed Finance Against Slavery and Trafficking, which was created to support survivors of modern slavery and human trafficking in accessing financial services through a partnership of 12 financial institutions and six survivor services organizations.
FAST’s survivor inclusion initiative provides financial institutions, service providers, regulators, and other key stakeholders with the framework to match potential survivors with basic traditional banking services, such as checking and savings accounts, and debit cards. Many survivors have had their credit ruined by traffickers and have no employment history, so these steps are critical for survivors to return to a sense of normalcy.
Who are the U.S. victims?
Trafficking is not only common in large cities and Mexico border towns, but also in the heartland and in our coastal regions. Agricultural communities are plagued with labor trafficking. In a recent interview, Polaris staff shared information and trends from the National Human Trafficking Hotline and research with survivors, including:
- Migrant workers are recruited to the U.S. on work visas, then charged illegal fees for their visas. When workers complain, they are abused and threatened with deportation, and they are unable to escape debt bondage.
- Substance use issues can be a reason for involvement in sexual exploitation for adults and minors, and men and women. Drug dealers will incite and coerce addictions so that their victims will begin and continue to engage in the commercial sex trade.
- “Grooming,” manipulating someone into a state of trust generally by buying gifts and expressing romantic intentions, is a common way to lure young victims into sex trafficking. Minors from unstable family homes, those who were abused at a young age, and those in foster care can be particularly vulnerable to these types of traffickers.
Those who are especially vulnerable to human trafficking are people who are:
- In need of social safety nets
- Impoverished or homeless
- From areas of instability or armed conflict
- In the U.S. illegally or on temporary work visas
Citing a 2017 report by the National Domestic Workers Alliance, Polaris says victims of labor trafficking in domestic work can pay between $3,000 and $9,000 in recruitment fees, resulting in many foreign workers arriving for their first day of work already deeply indebted to their employer or recruiter.
Debt and immigration status (legal or illegal) not only keeps the workers trapped, but also silent and sometimes ashamed, afraid of deportation. ”There are people from where I come from who have sold their only piece of land just to buy a ticket to come here thinking that they will make money and better their lives. If they have been duped, how and where do they go back to?” asked one trafficking survivor in the Polaris report.

UK: In our 47 years of membership, Britain lost its coal, steel, car, truck, bus, motorcycle, shipbuilding, ship repair and railway workshop industries, and much more besides. All in exchange for the fools’ gold of the casino economics of the City of London, the devotion to which almost destroyed the country in 2008. Germany was to be the industrial power, France the agricultural, Britain the financial. This all led to the desertification of post-industrial Britain and the mounting anger which swept EU membership away in the Brexit referendum. We now can and should rebuild Britain as an industrial and trading nation of the first class. ‘Made in Britain’ must become brand new again. – George Galloway

It’s documented evidence that she committed perjury. I have four witnesses that will testify that she personally turned down their visas.
