VITALY TCHERNENKO: My talk at the conference has been postponed. As is the conference itself. This.. is not a surprise. The Russian consulate has called me in. I am to stay here in the consulate building until the crisis has passed. Is very comfortable, more comfortable than my hotel, in fact. But here one feels a little like a prisoner. Am I not more useful to help with study of Green Poison - this is what they are calling the virus. - if I can work with others? It feels like the bad old days. At least I still have my phone and Internet. I will try to stay up on how things develop. Perhaps I can be of help from here.
