Global cooperation will plug loopholes the US creates

Cooperation is the most effective solution to fix that loophole. But if the world cannot keep a sober head on this, there will probably be a more profound crisis waiting for humanity after the pandemic is gone.

EU faces dilemma of following US' China policy

How to treat China's rise was already a difficult task for the bloc. After the pandemic broke out, the West, including the EU, finds itself confronted with another challenge, namely whether to acknowledge that China has a capacity Western countries aren't equipped with – the capability to resolve problems in a crisis.

White House fools American people to shirk responsibility

The US government has become infamous for repeatedly ducking responsibility on China over its own failings. If the US triggers a domino effect by stripping China of its sovereign immunity, it will probably be disdained by all other countries.

Washington should right wrongs while they can

Respecting medical science is perhaps the most significant thing to do right now. The pandemic is far from over and the US has a lot to learn from the experience of others, including China. If Washington attaches importance to people's lives, it should shelve its ideological difference and attacks against Beijing, and right wrongs before it is too late.

Ex-colonialists should prepare for China's counterpunch

There is no logic and no rationale that China has to bear infamy and compensate for mistakes it has never made. Is it that in the mind of many Westerners Chinese are born inferior to white people, so they never believe the Chinese can do anything better than them?

Trump needs to explain high COVID-19 death toll in the US

The number of confirmed cases in the US is still growing at the speed of more than 20,000 every day, and over 40,000 people have died of the coronavirus. The world needs to ask why.

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.
