Yes. Does anyone here remember the UK trying to score political points against China by flying all the British people back to Britain from Wuhan. Talk about pure political theatre and publicity stunt.

And the funny thing was, it all back fire on them because no logistic was in place. And what make matters worse was the drivers of the coach that pick all these people up have their company uniform on for 'protection" whereas all the medic staff and anyone else had the full Protection gear........... sitting next to the drivers! Lol. No wonder the drivers was looking worry! Lol
In NZ our front line staff who have first contact with returning citizens were never tested for covid. When discussing which countries handled Covid well. China never gets a mention. Sweden and Vietnam get held up as hhandling the pandemic well.

It's a crisis of faith.

How can China, a communist, collectivist, one party state possibly do better than capitalist, individualist, "democratic" countries, despite the plethora of evidence. If it's true than perhaps both the dogma that democracy solves all problems, and the publicly accepted image of China in the west isn't true.

But no that can't be right, so let's not think about it too hard.

Hi Temstar,

What happen in India should had happen in China, that should be the norm. Is the image that they wanted desperately to happen, but they under estimate the CCP and the Chinese people.

If the vacines don't work and the possible end of mankind is on the horizon, our last chance to turn to people with genealogist skills like Manqiangrexue and try gene editing to enable immunity.
Hi B.I.B.,

If the vacines don't work and the possible end of mankind is on the horizon

New Zealand will be the safest place to be, being an island with rich resources.

Where is the faux outrage about this jaw-droppingly ridiculous British proposal to deliberately infect healthy people with COVID19 to test their vaccine?

Also, as a fun little live demo. See how long it takes you to find that article if you were just casually browsing the BBC news website. Hell, see how hard it is to find it even if you are actually looking for it without specifically searching for it with the search function.

A nice little case study in how censorship works in western ‘free’ media. Publish but bury.

I wouldn't go that far. We are far far away from the end of mankind. We've had failed vaccines and vaccines with strong side effects plenty times before. To mankind as a whole, this virus is nothing. Our ancestors had gone through much worse. We, as mankind, WILL no doubt get pass this, one way or another. It's up to everyone of us to make sure that we, as individuals, can get pass this obstacle.

Like I said before it was the Chernobyl moment for western powers.

I saw on tv a couple months ago a news segment about the various ways of testing to see if a vaccine works because people were anticipating quick results and one mentioned was this method and an expert there said no civilized country would do such a thing.
