Recently, the International Rescue Center and the Risk Consulting Company issued a “Tourism Risk Map 2019” to tell you which countries are the most dangerous and which countries are the safest if you travel abroad.
In the map of tourism risk in 2019, the public security index is divided by color.
Green means no danger at all.
Yellow means low security risk.
Orange means medium security risk.
Red means high security risk.
Dark red means extremely security risk.
According to this map, the areas with the lowest security risks are Greenland and the Nordic region, and the highest risks are the Central and Northern Africa, the Middle East and the Central American generation. However, security risks in China, Europe, the United States and other regions are low risk levels. ----- But I disagree with it.
Like high welfare countries in Nordic, security is the first thing to say. How can the United States, where shootings occur every day, be in the same class as we do?
Nowadays, social security in China can be said to be quite good. A colleague of me studied in Britain, and when he came back, he said, “You can never imagine how dangerous it would be when hanging around at night? You would be robbed in instant.”
So is China safe? “You will never know the truth of it when you are in it.” Today we will take a look at the “outsiders” ---What do foreigners say about China’s public security?
There's a famous video anchor on the Youtobe, Poppy, an American girl who loves traveling. Some people always ask her these questions about China:
To answer this question, Poppy went to Beijing alone, where she is totally a stranger. In Beijing, she took a camera to take pictures of herself in the distance without the help of her peers, so she could only put it on the trees along the street. It was easy for someone to take it away, but no one touched her camera until the end of her shooting.
Compared with other countries in the world, being safe in China is not Poppy's personal opinion, but the consensus of foreigners from all over the world who have come to China for a period of time.
CCTV once had a street interview, and the theme is do you think China is safe? Why? The following is an interview with foreigners from different countries:
“That's definitely safe. I think it’s even safer than Germany!” When the reporter asked why you thought China was safer than Germany, his answer surprised me: “If you want to take a train in China, you must go through security checks.” So there are no security checks on trains in Germany?
So, is it unnecessary to go through security checks by train in Germany? Not to mention, traffic system security is a rare thing not only in Germany, but also in most European and American countries. That is to say, there are no security checks in Europe, either on the subway or on the train.
As for why there is no security inspection system, in order to improve transport efficiency and save manpower costs, Europe is basically not fortified in public transport system and no matter what explosives, inflammables are brought to the subway or train. In recent years, terrorist attacks against the public transport system have emerged in an endless stream.
Twenty people were killed and 106 injured in a suicide attack on the subway in Brussels, Belgium, in 2016. Despite the endless terrorist attacks, the relevant countries have only strengthened the security of public transport systems, instead of establishing a systematic security inspection system. China’s security inspection system, which requires a sip of bottled water, does a good job. Although sometimes it feels troublesome, for the sake of life safety, I think it's worth it.
“If you were in France, you would not go out very late.” For Chinese young people, they can't go out at night? Isn't the evening the beginning of a wonderful life? Daily night life in China does not exist in France or Britain.
Generally from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., most stores are closed, leaving only some 24-hour convenience stores or bars open. When the sun sets, the streets are basically full of groups of unidentified people. In this case, the consequences of going out are unimaginable. So don’t go outside when it’s dark.
A 2015 U.S. gun survey showed that 315 million people in the United States possess more than 300 million private firearms, and 100,000 innocent people are shot each year, with more than 30,000 people die each year at gunpoint.
On October 15, the NYPD patrol captain posted on a social networking site to celebrate that there had been no shootings in New York for three consecutive days in the past 25 years, and even the mayor of New York praised it as a remarkable achievement. Ten days after the post was sent, a shooting incident took place in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, killing 11 people and injuring 6 others. In a country where the cost of holding a gun is very low, you never know who will pull out the gun to your head.
The blogger Real Oath Egg released this video when the shooting took place in Las Vegas on October 1, 2017:
Indeed, as he said, a sense of security is a very important thing, just like health, only when you are sick can you know how good health is, and only after you leave China can you find out how safe China is. We weren't born in a safe world, but grew up in a safe country.
But there is also an airline stewardess from Dubai who disagrees: in China, girls should never go out at night! Otherwise...
Otherwise, you may encounter the following things at night: make you fat.
Yes, I do agree
But a little bit suggestion for the travelers. Be careful about the taxi drivers’ in China.
Especially, Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Fuzhou.
They are mostly non cooperative with technical moderate robbers.
Which is really prestigious and helpless situation mostly.
