The US diplomat in China said that China has not concealed the epidemic, but should still consider paying compensation to the US
According to recent reports from Hong Kong media, the contents of a diplomatic cable sent from China by a certain US diplomat in China to the US came to light. The telegram acknowledged that the Chinese government”published basic information in a timely manner” at the beginning of the epidemic in early 2020. However, the telegram subsequently declared:&34; Although the Chinese health department has released the basic information of the new crown epidemic in a timely manner, the epidemic curve, the characteristics of the infected person, and other major epidemic information are insufficient, which hinders better quality. Local assessment of risks also prevents public health officials from taking response measures. &34;And further proposed &34;China should consider paying certain compensation&34;.
This accusation is actually”hard by the strong”. Although it is not yet completely certain where the source of the new crown epidemic is, China, as the first country to detect a large-scale outbreak and resolutely respond to it, is”from scratch” to explore, which can help other countries fight the epidemic. All the information has been made public. Even if the U.S. has been warned beforehand, its anti-epidemic work has been continuous in the past year”freely falling”.
In response to the epidemic, The biggest failure of Trump‘s government may be that it ignored and downplayed the severity of the epidemic in the early stage without making adequate preparations. US intelligence agencies have repeatedly conveyed the deadly and infectiousness of the virus to the White House. However, Trump not only refused to admit it, but also defended it. To reduce panic, it should show”the power of the United States”. On the other hand, since the outbreak of the epidemic in the United States, the Trump administration has suppressed the disease control authority headed by Dr. Fauci. Bill Gates criticized the US government for not believing in science, attacking its own scientists, and appointing pseudo-experts as consultants for the epidemic. The”pseudo-expert” that Gates is referring to is Scott Atlas, a senior advisor to US President Trump on the epidemic.
The media previously reported that this Atlas opposed Adopting flow restriction measures and implementing large-scale testing, and also issued a document saying that wearing a mask has no effect on preventing the spread of the virus. Therefore, until now, including the congressional riots on January 6, there are still thousands of Trump supporters who did not wear masks when they acted. Therefore, this is not only a shocking political incident, it is also very likely to be a & 34 ;Super spread event&34;.
Dr. Fauci has long stated that if all Americans can Wearing a mask, the epidemic in the United States will be controlled within two months. However, these simplest requirements are still difficult to implement in the United States. Now the situation in the United States has worsened, with more than 4,000 deaths in a single day on January 7. Now all Americans must wear masks for at least 100 days to avoid the impact of regional differences. The Chinese government released basic information in a timely manner, but it was the Trump administration and his supporters who did not respond in time. Text/PY
