The number of Chinese cellphone users dropped by 21 million in the past three months, Beijing authorities announced on March 19.
For me - from this article it is more important that the government wants to control people over the phone, and they justify it to society because of the coronavirus. That is, initially the government wanted more control over ordinary people, and after that they found how to present it to residents so that they agreed (because of their health, a new virus).

Dans le désert péruvien, un panneau publicitaire transforme l'air en eau. BUJAMA (Pérou) – (AFP) – A première vue, c’est un panneau publicitaire géant comme il y en a tant sur la route menant aux stations balnéaires de la côte péruvienne, non loin de Lima, mais celui-ci présente l’inédite vertu de convertir l’humidité de l’air en eau potable pour les habitants d’un village perdu en plein désert. Bujama, à quelque 90 km au sud de la capitale péruvienne, est situé dans la bande très aride séparant la côte péruvienne du début des Andes. Dans ce village bordant l’autoroute au milieu d’un paysage désolé, les habitants boivent une eau de mauvaise qualité, puisée dans des puits de fortune. Mais depuis peu, ils peuvent s’approvisionner en eau potable au robinet d’un réservoir de 100 litres situé au pied d’un énorme panneau publicitaire d’une quinzaine de mètres de haut.
Dans les entrailles de ce panneau d’un nouveau genre, cinq générateurs captent l’eau contenue dans l’air et la diffusent dans un circuit de purification connecté au réservoir.
