Writing in the Atlantic, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution fires his shot at the Chinese government, which he claims grossly mishandled the coronavirus crisis for its own selfish ends.
Some American commentators and Democratic politicians are aghast at Donald Trump and Republicans for referring to the pandemic as the “Wuhan virus” and repeatedly pointing to China as the source of the pandemic. In naming the disease COVID-19, the World Health Organization specifically avoided mentioning Wuhan. Yet in de-emphasizing where the epidemic began (something China has been aggressively pushing for), we run the risk of obscuring Beijing’s role in letting the disease spread beyond its borders.
So, there it is — our daily reminder that either China or Russia is the villain always at the ready to take us down.
