US-China war: Is coronavirus ”China’s virus” ?
China always had a history of mishandling the situations and outbreaks.
Everybody is well aware of this fact that the first news of coronavirus was leaked in December when people all over the world started talking and asking about it ,but Chinese communist party was continuously pretending that there was little to be concerned about.
People all over the globe are arguing that if China had taken a serious step when corona virus first appeared in Wuhan whole globe would never had faced such adverse consequences.
China is already under blaming pressure for outbreaks like SARS in 2002 and 2003 , and now this virus which if would had controlled at very start by locking down Wuhan in a proper pattern people would never have been facing such badly remarked situation.
Nicholas D. Kristof of The Newyork Times has noted:
” act decisively they did_ not against the virus, but against whistle blowers who were trying to call attention to the public health threat” .
Recently Donald trump and Republicans referred pandemic as ”Wuhan virus” and kept on pointing on China that all what is happening and will happen is due to China’s leaders negligence .
Trump added that surely we do not blame China for this outbreak as the nation going through a lot like other nations but we blame the government in Beijing who has covered it up in a way as if it is very non concerning matter to look into or take action to and now the globe is under risk and paying a heavy price to that,
Li wenliang (late Doctor) who tried to warn when the virus started spreading at the first place was silenced by the government afterwards and then he gave a statement that his warnings were criminal misbehavior, he was soon dead of the very plague he tried to warn of, and the so many other doctors were silenced in the same way , so whom to blame,
Trump also added that this virus someday will pass away eventually but the destruction will be unbearable and we will not forget China’s irresponsibility.
Are we close to combat virus ?
So many tests have been taken , dozens of drugs have been tested around the world but still doctors and scientists have not found any clue to fight virus.
Latest data suggest that some 20 percent of people infected have serious illness and around 1 percent may die .
People are being traumatized , they are panicking out of terror and waiting for the cure to come .
These viruses had always been a big trouble to the nation and to the scientists.
Anthony Fauci, director of the National institute of Allergy said that ”Even with all the modern medicine, we have only eradicated one virus smallpox , which required a decades long global mass vaccination effort” .
Doctors all over the world right now are giving general treatments ,because there is no proper vaccine or cure is present,
Some are suggesting quarantine , some are suggesting chloroquine but at the end of the day everybody is looking forward to specific vaccine for coronavirus.
