Many Western governments ill-equipped to handle coronavirus

Will virus be a curse or a blessing for Trump's reelection?

If these measures successfully curb the virus' spread, and the US economy isn't negatively affected, this crisis may be a blessing in disguise for Trump's re-election prospects, which proves that in time of crisis and uncertainty, he is the right kind of tough leader that the US people need.

Difficult for Western democracies to build new hospitals quickly: Jim O'Neill

The West is supposed to have an advantage in information openness and transparency. Why hasn't it taken preemptive measures to stop the virus from spreading rapidly even after they witnessed how the epidemic broke out in East Asia? What lessons can they learn from China? Would Western countries duplicate China's virus-control measures?

Ideological narcissism causes heavy losses to West amid outbreak

China's UFC champ beats opponent and racism in the ring

This somehow reminds me of international relations. At the center of the world stage, China has been the target of “trash talk” from some countries. But China is neither submissive nor overbearing. With its power, balance and a peaceful mind, China has proved its strength and will win more and more applause worldwide.

My first-hand experience with US-style 'freedom of the press'

China recently revoked press credential of three journalists with the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) for a racist headline the newspaper published and its refusal to apologize. It's for a specific incident. Yet the US has targeted 60 employees at five separate Chinese media outlets, which reveals its intensified efforts to sour bilateral relations.

Time to pay attention to human rights in US

The newly issued report is filled with diplomatic and political antagonism. It violates the concept of human rights advocated by the UN Human Rights Council. Its only value is to remind people that it is time to pay some attention to the human rights situation in the US.

Russian people have final say over constitutional amendments

Some analysts also suspect that Putin has found a successor, and amending the Constitution will pave the way for the next president. If this is indeed the case, the West's criticism of Putin would have been without merit. As the Chinese government put it, we should respect and support the Russian people's choice.

New Yorkers' calm feels like the start of a horror film

The US' sluggish start could be attributed to many factors, from ideological and cultural differences, to the artificial calm instilled by top leaders during an election year, and human nature that numbs us to problems from afar. This is not the time for psychoanalysis, because there is no time.

Coronavirus a severe test of EU's solidarity

It remains to be seen whether COVID-19 will end up promoting further integration of European health systems, but solidarity and collaboration are essential to addressing global common threats, including the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

COVID-19 will deal a blow to globalization; total decoupling unlikely

The coronavirus has also made countries realize the importance of international cooperation in public health. Countries should at least build some consensus on public health, no matter how tense their political relations are. In terms of public health, we need to build an information sharing mechanism which is transparent, timely and will not be hindered by political relations. After all, no country can respond to all epidemics alone.

US system puts interest groups above public health

US politicians won't view and deal with the COVID-19 epidemic from the perspective of global interests and long-term interests of people. Knowing this, we'll find US' irresponsibility unsurprising.

Western criticism of China proves unjustified as coronavirus victory nears

The Chinese government is determined, and the Chinese people can well discern between right and wrong and will hardly allow themselves to be at the mercy of Western-controlled international public opinion.
