China will do as China does. What I am criticising is Sinophobia and the tendency of one-way-only labeling. We don't refer to the material we write on as "Chinese paper" do we?eugene wrote: ↑Mon Mar 23, 2020 3:57 amSome common sense measures in China would have stopped this whole things. The Chinese practice of wet markets is what caused this thing, and the subsequent cover-up by the Chinese government allowed it to eventually become a pandemic. I am quite happy to lay this disaster at the feet of the Chinese.
I don't think a Chinese cover up matters much, because when briefed about a potential pandemic by American advisors and intelligence officers in January/February, the US decided not to act until well into March. That aproximate 6 week delay happened after the Chinese cover up was leaked. We knew about it and still failed to act.
