Australia joins US bandwagon over virus policy

President Trump is restoring America as a selfish state among selfish states. It certainly serves no Australian interest if Australia becomes one of them. China is building a cooperative architecture in the Asia-Pacific region to push forward joint development rather than dominate the region.

China's foreign aid shouldn't be bridled by controversy

Beijing has the responsibility to offer medical support to those countries ravaged by the coronavirus. Any responsible global power prioritizing people's lives would make the same choice as China.

Cooperate with US states on virus fight, not federal government

China will continue humanitarian cooperation with the US but won't ignore how Washington has sabotaged it. We should use our actions to demonstrate our attitude.

Nobody accountable in US despite rising virus deaths

While millions of lives are threatened by the #COVID19, the #US is still seeing endless debates over #federalism instead of full cooperation between the federal and state governments. How could people expect accountability mechanisms come into play in such a country?

COVID-19 battle is not a zero-sum game between countries

Perhaps the biggest lesson that we should learn from the COVID-19 pandemic is countries with different political systems and ideologies should unite to deal with our common enemy. Learning to coexist may be the goal of human development in the future as well as the solution to global problems.

Trump's empty promises meant for reelection, not to fight virus

Public health crises do not happen often, but once they do, they expose the various flaws of a system. It remains to be seen how the US reforms its system to address the flaws, or just looks for a scapegoat.

China-US relations will no longer be the same

China's endurance is no longer the same as it was 20 or 30 years ago. We have a unique Chinese philosophy of resistance to pressure. We will not become a second Soviet Union, nor will we provoke the antagonism and confrontation between China and the US from our side. China 's way of safeguarding its core interests will be brand new, and we need to surprise history.

Washington's hysterical COVID-19 claims will fail

The ruling elites in Washington are living in a fantasy where they think blurring the facts and spreading their slander allows them to call white for black.

Racist attack on China's COVID-19 measures groundless

Any claim that suggests requiring Africans to cooperate with China's anti-virus work is unfair treatment or discrimination is a trap set by some Western media and politicians who intend to drive a wedge between China and Africa. China-Africa relations and time-tested friendship between the two sides won't be disrupted by some malicious hype.

China's miracles beyond biased Western understanding

It is time for the US to accept the fact: China is indeed working miracles, and will certainly do more. Realizing this reality will benefit the US itself and China-US relations.

Will the US be able to reform its system after pandemic?

Sanders saw the gap between the rich and poor in the US and the crisis it has brought. But his so-called democratic socialism lacks the will to oppose capitalism. It is also impossible for him to promote reform under the current conditions.

Rising gun sales could be more deadly than COVID-19

The proliferation of guns could be even more fatal than the virus. The US inaction on gun control and the green light given to the firearm business amid the epidemic fully demonstrates its disdain for the right to life – the most basic human right – which also partly explains why the US has so poorly handled the growing coronavirus epidemic.

Cause of US coronavirus crisis systemic, not just Trump

While the US elite write articles analyzing why the US mishandles the crisis, they should give a thought to their system.

Taiwan's green camp shows narrow-mindedness by targeting virus fight song

When people on the mainland talk about being united against the pandemic, entanglement across the straits rarely comes to mind, if ever. It's obvious that Yunnan Media Group teamed up with the stars to increase the popularity of the song. The producers had no intention of targeting Taiwan.

Western countries should abandon silly mask prejudices

Western countries are now the main battlefield of the global fight against the pandemic. It is time for them to abandon their prejudices and arrogance and take the lives of their own people more seriously.

Western attacks on China's media sound like sour grapes

Western media outlets should stop taking advantage of the coronavirus to attack China and the professionals who work in China's media. In the face of the mishandling of the pandemic in their own countries, their offensive and empty accusations simply sound like sour grapes.

US wrong to relieve captain who raised alarm about COVID-19

The US Congress has passed resolutions to interfere in China's handling of Dr. Li's case, but what it should really do is to criticize US inaction over COVID-19 and its unfair treatment of Crozier.

China-bashing politicians should investigate US' failures in fighting virus

The COVID-19 epidemic is raging in the US, but Scott is still attacking China and the WHO instead of doing something useful to the US fighting against the virus. If he has so much spare time, he should have called for a Congressional investigation into the US CDC and other federal departments. Perhaps Congress should appoint him head of the inspection team.
