The Blame Game

Popularity 2Viewed 7538 times 2020-4-5 09:52 |System category:News

Recently there is very large number of negative campaign going on the media against China after the outbreak of COVID-19. Misinformation and shifting the blame upon China ,and to deliberately ignore Chinas fight against this pandemic .The US politicians are still is the phase of denial and rather then acting responsible for the safety and and health of their citizens, they are busy painting bad picture about China . They are failing to recognize that China has won the war against COVID-19, while they are loosing it.Its time to stop this blame game and join hands together to defeat this virus for the sake of humanity . Lets not forget that China is joining hands with other nations and helping them to win the battle against this Virus. While China is giving support to international community against this deadly virus,the huge western media outlets and politicians are demanding apology from China for spreading COVID19 in the world. Is this a joke ? they are using COVID-19 , a natural crisis to pull the rivals rug. Stigmatization is more dangerous then the virus itself.

 

Chinese expat communities around the globe fear they will be blamed for the deadly outbreak.In France there was outrage after the Courrier Picard newspaper used the headlines "Yellow alert" and "Yellow peril". The repeated usage of the word “Chinese Virus” or “kung Fu virus” or “Kung flu” by the President Trump is outrageous .While Uk minister Michael Gove blames China for failing to stop spread of Covid-19. its nothing more then their feeble excuses for their own mistakes.

 

First we need to educate them about corona Virus.The name “corona virus” comes from the crown-like projections on their surfaces. “Corona” in Latin means “halo” or “crown.” Researchers first isolated a corona virus in 1937. They found a corona virus responsible for an infectious bronchitis virus in birds that had the ability to devastate poultry stocks. Scientists first found evidence of human corona viruses (HCoV) in the 1960s in the noses of people with the common cold. Two human corona viruses are responsible for a large proportion of common colds.Symptoms vary from person-to-person with COVID-19. It may produce few or no symptoms. However, it can also lead to severe illness and may be fatal. Common symptoms include: fever, breathlessness, cough, potential loss of taste or smell.

Under the Leadership and direct command of president Xi Jinping, China took advantage of using its national resources and mobilizing them in useful way to fight against the virus. Which resulted in gaining the positive momentum to control the pandemic in the entire country. WHO praised the Chinese efforts of People’s war against the virus.

 

we must stop the fake news regarding the COVID-19 . Many people are comparing COVID-19 with Spanish Flu, which utterly represent lack of knowledge and ignorance.it is a tempting comparison. But it’s not an entirely fair one,The truth is that this comparison is severely flawed and that the numbers it relies on are almost certainly wrong. The Spanish flu, the deadliest viral outbreak of recent history, infected about a third of the planet’s population causing 50 and 100 million deaths in just over 18 months between 1918-1919. Statistically and symptomatically both of the viruses have no comparison.it is "mathematically impossible" that the Spanish flu would infect 500 million people and kill between 50 and 100 million. The error must be corrected to avoid spreading panic in public. This false equivalence depends largely on a false statistic that should never have been published.Media Should Stop Comparing Covid-19 to the Spanish Flu.

 

Leaders of over 170 countries have applauded the heroic actions of Chinese people to contagion the COVID-19. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres described China’s sacrifice in containing the spread of the novel coronavirus as a great contribution to all mankind. WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus noted that China’s forceful actions have limited the spread of the virus, both domestically and beyond its borders. China is protecting not only its people, but also the rest of the world.

 

President Xi Jinping held a telephone conversation with President Trump last Friday. President Xi said that the Chinese people sincerely hope that the US will contain the spread of the pandemic at an early date and minimize its impact on the American people. Under the current circumstances, China and the US should unite in the fight against the virus.In its efforts to fight off the epidemic, China has conducted itself as a responsible country,and true leader of the world. Other countries should also act responsible to stop spreading fake new, hatred and racism against Chinese people.

 

We are living in the advance age of globalization .where all the nations live as one country in one global village .In the face of global challenges like public health security, should we stand closely together, or abandon our neighbors ? Should we fight side-by-side, or adopt a “wait-and-see” attitude? Should we offer timely support, or add insult to injury? Viruses respect no country , race, religion or ethnicity,They don’t care if you are living in Asia ,Europe or in America.Its the battle of everyone. The COVID-19 is a common challenge facing all of mankind. To safeguard global public health, countries must join hands and stand shoulder to shoulder in the fight against the scourge. If we come to each other’s aid in this time of difficulty and fight for our shared future, we can build an “impregnable fortress” and win the battle against the virus.

Its time for the international community to stop the prejudices against China, put all the differences aside, and work with Unity and collaboration to fight against COVID-19.

Some western media outlets. be it broadsheets or tabloids, invariably employ their old hat tactic against China even in the face of the hard fact that China has done a terrific job in containing the outbreak...imagine that epidemic broke out first in the US, given how it has been handling the crisis, that legit would be a diaster on a biblical scale...
