The New York Times reports China has been handed a major international victory in the fight to contain coronavirus.

President Xi Jinping of China announced at the start of the forum that Beijing would donate $2 billion toward fighting the coronavirus and dispatch doctors and medical supplies to Africa and other countries in the developing world.

Meanwhile, Trump refused to address the global assembly.

And spare me the “China is trying to buy silence over how it handled the initial stages of the outbreak.” I’m reminded that “he who pays the piper calls the tune.”
