From near to far, this year is the year of the rat. At the beginning of the new year, we get headaches from coronavirus. Before the Spring Festival, the virus has spread rapidly in China.
So far, the epidemic has been basically controlled, but it has also paid a high economic cost.
It has been postponed for 12 years to 2008, which is undoubtedly a very important year for China. The Wenchuan earthquake touched the hearts of every Chinese. How many families broke up in Wenchuan earthquake?
Data show that the earthquake caused nearly 70000 deaths, nearly 400000 injured, 180000 missing. This is the most devastating disaster since 1949.
Then in 1996, there was a big earthquake in Lijiang County, Yunnan Province, which affected millions of people, more than 300000 of whom were seriously affected.
In addition, resources in housing construction, food and other fields have suffered huge losses, with an economic loss of more than 4 billion yuan.
In 1972, Hong Kong experienced a rainstorm disaster, which lasted for three consecutive days from the 16th to the 18th, with rainfall of more than 600 mm, which directly led to landslides and serious disasters.
Almost the whole of Hong Kong is paralyzed. The rainstorm is the deadliest flood in Hong Kong’s history.
Judging from these disasters, it seems that the year of the rat is not very comfortable, but a lot of good things happened in 2008, and SARS broke out in 2003.
Why don’t these things count? If you really sum up that every year has its ups and downs, why treat the year of the rat in particular?
