Must See: How China Enabled the Global Coronavirus Pandemic

The New York Times has taken a deeper dive into the coronavirus pandemic and the role that is China has played. “How The Virus Got Out” offers an unflinching look into the Chinese government and the manner in which they handled the virus initially. The culpability of the Chinese regime is laid back for the entire world to see it.

When the outbreak initially occurred, seven million citizens were allowed to leave the Wuhan region. Obviously, this boneheaded decision contributed to the spread. The Chinese government spent the first few weeks of the outbreak telling everyone that there was no need to panic.

Meanwhile, they were looking for ways to suppress the information from leaking out. Two months after the outbreak first made the news, the entire globe is staring a lengthy depression in the face. The virus may mutate and die off at some point but millions could die in the meantime.

There is no amount of punishment that would be enough for the Chinese. By waiting until the virus had already reached other countries to start the process of warning others, the Chinese have left the entire world in danger. Millions could die and the blood is going to be on their hands. There are no two ways about it.

The coronavirus numbers are becoming more and more horrifying by the day. There are over 300,000 known cases around the world. These numbers are only going to continue to rise in the weeks and months to come. What are the Chinese going to do to help all of the people who are now falling ill because of their unwillingness to make the right decisions in a timely manner?

We are waiting for answers but we are sure that they won’t come. China is already doing its best to pass the buck and avoid blame for what they have done. The former FDA chief of the Trump administration has already spoken out, saying that the scenes from New York City are “going to be shocking”.

The White House is already in the process of nudging various federal agencies to spread the word. They want to make sure that the world knows who is truly responsible here. The media is trying to push back against these efforts, for a wide range of reasons. They believe that this is a needless distraction that is keeping us from our true objectives.

Domestic mobilization efforts are already taking place and America is doing everything in their power to slow the outbreak. There are also those who believe that it is not in our best interests to get into some sort of bickering match with China at the moment. Truth be told, there is probably some validity to that statement.

China has already made its mistakes and bickering with them at the present moment is a waste of energy. That does not mean that their actions should be ignored, though. Other liberal media types are claiming that Trump is only looking to pick a fight with China to distract attention from their own failings.

These critiques can be debated in one direction or the other, depending on where your allegiances lie. However, we can all agree that the White House is correct when it comes to the complaints that they have had made. The Chinese Communist officials who did not inform the rest of the world (or even their own people) have a certain level of responsibility right now and this cannot be ignored.

It does not matter which side of the aisle you are sitting on. The Chinese government hid all of the information that they had about the virus. Doctors and journalists who sounded the alarm bells were silenced. Information was deliberately kept from the American people. None of this is up for debate.

The world needs to know the full depths of the Chinese incompetence that allowed this virus to reach pandemic status. The Wuhan cover-up was problematic enough but the Chinese blunders extend well beyond these initial screw-ups. The government did not even begin to institute lockdown rules until the virus had been given seven weeks to spread.

We hope that war does not take place, as this would be an unwanted development for both nations. It will be a long time before the United States and China are able to engage in their normal business practices. In the meantime, Americans must take the proper steps and engage in the social distancing that will allow us to squelch this outbreak before it has a chance to worsen.

  1. China may well have started this virus but the NYT’s – DeBlowhole and the leftist with their unrestricted open borders ans Sanctuary Cities have done absolutely NOTHINGto slow it down. There us a map of the U.S . that depicts where ALLthe coronavirus test are going – to no ones surprise the vast majority are going to NYC – Meanwhile whiny assed Chuck Schumer – Jerry Nadler and drunk whiny Nancy Pelosi are trying to ibstruct Aid/relief to the rest of Ameruca. The hardest being hit right now are the low income people the Democrats claim to care about. The poir are finding that they are ONLY useful idiots to the Democrats.

  2. They tested it on their lab rats in Wuhan and unleashed it on the world, no radioactive areas to worry about when they move in.

  3. China the biggest culprit of chaos in the world today.

  4. As the days go by and more of the early story gets discovered and pieced together, it becomes more and more evident that the Chinese bear full responsibility for not just releasing but aiding and abetting the release of this virus on an unsuspecting world.
    No amount of reparations will ever recompense the rest of the world for the months of time and the trillions of dollars in lost wealth, not to mention the families destroyed by the loss of one or more loved ones,
    The only fitting penalty for committing this atrocity on the world is to collectively act to take away the wealth that China has undeservedly accumulated through through the breach of a trust of such a magnitude as to not be witnessed since the start of WWII.
    Other sources of manufacture must be developed as quickly as possible and manufacturing moved out of China as swiftly as possible. The peoples of the world must develop a preference for goods from “Anywhere But China” so that the Chi-Coms fall from wealth back into poverty, and concomitant fall from the world political stage is accomplished as swiftly or more so than their rise from the poverty of Mao’s “Great Leap Forward” era.

  5. Any way you look at this, China owns the coronavirus. News and politicians covering for them, yet the truth is coming out. China needs to pay for this. Do not buy anything made in China or made by Chinese in other countries. Example: China sent 100,000 leather workers to Italy to produce goods marked made in Italy so they could made more money. The Chinese workers came from the Wuhan area. How crooked. Italy is paying the price.

  6. As an ex UK Intelligence officer I can tell you with a lot of confidence that the real enemy is not so much the Chinese Government as the Corporate Elite who own the Media (which can be euphamistically described as “Courtesans”) and who are behind the complicated world wide supply chains focussing on China instead of a gradually developed system of supply chains based upon-bi-lateral trade agreements.
    The sad fact of the matter is that Bernie Sanders spells out the TRUTH but has a crazy unworkable solution
    Our best chance of saving our beloved United States is to give Trump (ignoring his imperfections) not only the White House but also a huge majority in both Houses – and then you will see Trump at his best where he will be seen as a great “moderator” between the extremes of both Parties

    • The last time Trump had both houses, they did NOTHING to help Trump!!!

      • Too many OBarry hold overs still in government.

      • Hopefully this shows them they need to take advantage and not be the nice guys anymore. Not crazy about McConnell. He’s too much of a wussy and gives in too easily. I think someone like Cruz or Collins would make a good leader. Someone with backbone . He did nothing about what was done to the president during his impeachment.

      • A possible explanation is that they though Trump was going to be impeached and removed from office, and didn’t want to be seen supporting him-doing a CYA. I’m NOT defending their actions, just stating why they did it.

    • Trump has imperfections just like everyone else. He doesn’t take crap and media and democrats don’t like that. He doesn’t sugarcoat anything. Obama had charisma but not an honest bone. He had everybody fooled because he talked intelligently. I’d rather have someone talk on my level than above me. Obama was smiling while dealing shady deals with his people. If we have a republican house and senate with Trump in November you will see us bounce back in no time an a huge amount of things being done for us instead of our money being wasted for impeachment every 2 months. The democrats showed their true colors and what they wanted during this stimulus bill. Should be proof enough. Also notice the number of infected Americans are most prominent in the sanctuary states. Maybe if we have stricter immigration laws and illegal actually means illegal then we can see a great America. Scary thing about everything that has happen is if the house can do all this to the president you and I don’t stand a chance.
