China world’s hope versus COVID-19 and beyond

DESPERATE to cover-up for their own incompetence and inadequacies that resulted to the infection of millions and the death of hundreds of thousands (thus far) of their citizens, Western Imperialism with Japan and Australia, their main lackeys in the Pacific area, have orchestrated a global campaign against China over the scourge of COVID-19.

From being the “source” of the virus that allegedly “escaped” from one of its biochemical laboratories in Wuhan to “withholding” information about the virus to the rest of the world thereby allowing it to spread unnoticed by the rest of the world, China is being bashed from “pillars to posts,” so to speak, and being ganged up, literally, by the major Western governments headed by the United States.

Indeed, one can only be amazed at how well the West was able to invent one accusation after another against China, as soon as their slander has been proven—an effort that mirrors also their campaign against our country and Pres. Rody.

After scientists and respected global health experts dismissed the West’s first accusation that the virus was a “product” of China’s ‘biowarfare’ experiment, proving that the virus “evolved naturally,” the Western Imperialism simply bury this correction thru another round of accusation against China.

Take note that independent reports from France and the UK (and even in the US) that the COVID-19 strain was already present in their countries as far back as September last year (two months before the ‘outbreak’ in Wuhan) and that some of those who died were (mis)diagnosed to have died from ‘influenza’ but were dead because of COVID-19, were also instantly dismissed.

These independent reports were dismissed because they support the now generally accepted fact that the virus is indeed a new strain of COVID (corona virus) that evolved in nature and went undetected precisely because it is a “novel” strain of the corona virus, aside from its symptom being common with influenza and other earlier strains of COVID.

For why not? If COVID-19 was nothing but a nasty product of nature, the slander that COVID-19 was a ‘Chinese experiment’ on biowarfare would be proven just that—a slander.

Ditto, China’s counter-accusation that if the virus is indeed “man-made,” it could have only come from the US’ own biowarfare laboratory based on its own (and some Americans) investigation, was also immediately dismissed by the mainstream Western media for again this would prove the inhumanity of their own governments—infecting the entire world just to prove the deadlines of their new “weapon of mass destruction.”

Of course, the biggest ‘fly in the ointment’ against this ongoing—and ceaseless-- ‘China bashing,’ is the refusal by the World Health Organization (WHO) to jump into, and get along, with this ‘let-us-hate-China’ bandwagon.

The WHO has been pilloried too on many occasions by US Pres. Donald Trump since early this year, even threatened with a cut on US funding, for its praise and support of China’s efforts to contain the further spread of the virus and of China’s immediate decision to share its knowledge about the virus to the rest of the global health community.

And why not include WHO in their blame game? For WHO’s pronouncements about the virus again proved as slander the accusation by the West that China “failed” to immediately alert the rest of the world on the presence of the novel corona virus with its very high rate of infection.

Thus, ahead of this week’s (virtual) meeting of the World Health Assembly (WHA), the governing body of the WHO, we again saw the bullying tactic being used by Uncle Sam and his gangmates for the WHO to adopt a “consensus” mainly proving their accusations against China.

(And therefor boost the monetary claim against China being pushed by some quarters in the United States and Europe).

This effort to turn the WHA into a gathering of the imperial powers reminds one of the Versailles Treaty of 1919 when the victors of World War 1 united to put the blame on Germany for the global carnage; they went on afterwards to impose “reparations” on Germany in the billions of dollars and pound sterling. For who gets to pay but the “guilty,” right?

But if Western Imperialism came prepared to turn the WHA into their version of Versailles, they were stumped with the “attendance” of no less than Chinese president, Xi Jin Ping during the May 18, 2020, WHA, which was held via global “teleconferencing.”

For instead of again turning the table against China’s accusers or falling into the trap of turning the WHA into a “blame game” affair, Pres. Xi rallied the world to unite in beating the pandemic and moving forward afterwards with the following announcements:

China will provide US$2 billion over two years to help with COVID-19 response and with economic and social development in affected countries, especially developing countries;

China will work with the UN to set up a global humanitarian response depot and hub in China, ensure the operation of anti-epidemic supply chains and foster “green corridors” for fast-track transportation and customs clearance;

China will establish a cooperation mechanism for its hospitals to pair up with 30 African hospitals and accelerate the building of the Africa CDC headquarters to help the continent ramp up its disease preparedness and control capacity;

COVID-19 vaccine development and deployment in China, when available, will be made a global public good. This will be China’s contribution to ensuring vaccine accessibility and affordability in developing countries;

China will work with other G20 members to implement the Debt Service Suspension Initiative for the poorest countries; and,

China is also ready to work with the international community to bolster support for the hardest hit countries under the greatest strain of debt service, so that they could tide over the current difficulties.

Over these initiatives, it is clear that China would be the world’s greatest hope in the fight against our common unseen enemy and in the recovery of the global economy.

Of course, China-bashing, like Duterte-bashing would never go away. But an enlightened global community would soon see who is our real “friend,” who is telling the truth and who the “enemy” really is.

Abangan!
