Lack of US leadership can't stall global virus fight

The virus knows no borders or ideology. Solidarity and cooperation are the only way to survive the disease. Fortunately for the world, many countries have turned to China instead of the US for help, and China has given active responses, demonstrating its responsibility as a big power. The international community should unite to win this battle together. The absence of America's leadership does not amount to the end of the world.

US scholars call for cooperation while 'erecting barrier': Chinese expert

Those in West indifferent to China's early pain now blame China for their loss

At a critical moment when global cooperation is direly needed to fight the novel coronavirus pandemic, some Australian media outlets and personnel have been fabricating facts, groundlessly accusing China of being responsible for the spread of the virus and demanding China pay for the losses the pandemic would cause to the world. One notorious example is radio shock jock Alan Jones, who has been sending wrong and misleading messages with lies and unfounded accusations about China since the global pandemic reached Australia.

Australian radio host racist, fans hatred with lies about China

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison made an appearance on a Sydney radio station Friday morning accepting an interview with host Alan Jones. Although Australia is being increasingly ravaged by the COVID-19 pandemic with more than 5,300 confirmed cases as of press time, the right-wing radio shock jock cares less about how to effectively contain COVID-19 and more about pointing an accusing finger at China.

Global synergy needed to defeat COVID-19

Countless people like me from business circles, educational departments, diplomatic corps, and other entities have invested heavily into peaceful global trade of the past 19-years since China joined the WTO. I would argue that to a person, we are concerned about the sheer stress test to these peaceful structures of globalization.

'American exceptionalism' has become deadly arrogance

The US has had the highest number of coronavirus infected cases in the world. It is time for Washington to abandon its exceptionalism, spare no efforts to learn successful countermeasures and experience from other countries, and cooperate with any country that can get it through these tough times. This is the only way the US can effectively curb the deadly virus.

West's sense of superiority caused failure to act promptly

The West is trying to deflect blame, exacerbated by a mind-set which interprets disease outbreaks not as an inevitable aspect of the human condition, but something belonging to exotic, oriental and poorer nations.

Free market weakens US supply chain of much-needed medical supplies

Indeed, when we doff the tainted glasses of ideology, we can see that marshaling a country's economic and industrial resources to achieve a common goal is as essential as the temporary shelter-in-place policy that many of us are now abiding by. In an abnormal era, this is what we call the new normal.

West should stop criticizing China and learn from its achievements

China has shared its experience, but many Western countries are just not willing to follow. When the pandemic is over, these countries will find that it was not China that had led to the severe conditions in the US and Europe, but their own wrong judgments and choices.
