    I’m a medical doctor in SF and I cannot, in good conscience, maintain my silence any longer. The supposedly “evil Chicoms” are providing free ECMO and ICU care for their citizens while here in America, the majority of Americans won’t get access to that affordably. It is only the preserve of the rich.

    See the WHO task force report by Dr Bruce Aylward about China’s response to the virus. The Chinese response has been unprecedented and effective at halting further spread of the virus. Their actions bought us in America a valuable 4-6 weeks before the virus reaches here. However this administration has squandered that time – with still insufficient and faulty test kits and poor response to contain the virus. We can easily expect Pence to do the standard thing any corrupt regime does when confronted with their own gross incompetence: distract us with a foreign target/nation while denying the most basic of human rights to Americans – the right to life.

    Watch him prepare to use terms like “China virus” or “Wuhan virus” – nomenclature that is inaccurate and not approved by the WHO instead of the official COVID-19name – to try to shift the blame on the Chinese as usual.

    Disgracefull!

    • Well said! Respect.

    • @Andrew Smith. You are a lying sack of crap.

    • @Andrew Smith You are a liar, a shill for Communist China. Pathetic.

      @John Smith I’d personally be very impressed if any wumao/communist shill can quote Lancet papers and WHO task force reports. Especially in English, with proper grammar and sentence structures.

    • I live in Beijing. Health care *generally* is not free, although it is very affordable. When this virus hit, it was broadcast through the media and even through the streets that all medical expenses would indeed be covered for this virus, or even for suspected cases. They took great efforts to make that message clear. The fear of course was that people would rather not pay for treatment and try their luck at home, all while spreading the virus far and wide.

      The country has gone to extraordinary lengths to curb the spread of this virus; measures that many of us in the entitled west would bristle at _(‘muhh freeeedums’),_ but it appears to have been very effective. All for nought though, with countries like the US and UK treating it like nothing…. bit of a shame, to say the least.

    SURE the Doc died from Corona virus. 👌🏻

  3. They couldn’t have know it would be this bad, the testing took weeks, but they took it seriously and acted quickly with drastic measures once they realised that it wasn’t a reoccurrence of the SARS epidemic.. Of course the quarantine has helped them, but it is far from done there.
    Trump on the other hand has all of f the information in front of him and is still brushing it off and failing to tackle reality.. If it had started in the US while he was in charge, he would just let the people rot, he definitely wouldn’t warn anyone… As long as the money was rolling in, it will all be fine!!

  4. Focusing on China at this stage is misdirection designed to distract from America’s failed response. Mike Pompeo was on MSNBC yesterday talking about how long it took China report (sure, true) when the issue now is how long it has taken the US to respond.

    • Anon Dr. Redfield from CDC said he has been in contact since China CDC on New Year’s Eve. Secretary Pompeo can spin this however he wants, but basically, the US learned about this virus essentially the same time as Chinese did.

  5. China can do 1.6 million tests per week.
    t’rump is still struggling with how a vaccine works.
    🤣🤣🤣

    • Why I Keep seeing this Muslim concentration camp story EVERYWHERE when there’s news about China? Care for sharing a link please I REALLY want to know!
      I grow up in Muslim region in China and I never heard of it. And about half of all my friends are Chinese Muslims, and they’re all pretty normal ppl with pretty normal lives only except for having some privilege here and there over general policies such as getting lowered college admission line and that’s it!

    • John Smith check out this girl’s YouTube channel, she is Chinese Muslim and has been posting her daily life in Xinjiang China (where most Chinese Muslim live) for a while, instead of looking at bunch fake news, just spend sometime see how Chinese Muslim live, their school, their street, their families etc. Or just simply visit Xinjiang one day, use your own eyes to find out the truth.

    • John Smith wake up, don’t be fooled by the fake news anymore. Where did you see xi jinping admitted that?

      @John Smith Coming from a Muslim family in Xinjiang, never heard of concentration camp.

    Any footage of Chris mattews walking thru the halls after he quit like a little boy.

  7. I LIVE IN SEATTLE WASHINGTON BE SKEPTICAL OF THE NUMBERS OF DEATHS REPORTED HERE. WE FOUND YESTERDAY THAT THEY ARE NOT TESTING THE PEOPLE WHO DIED AT THE FACILITY IN KIRKLAND WASHINGTON. RULING THEIR DEATHS NATURAL CAUSES BECAUSE THEY HADN’T BEEN TESTED FOR THE VIRUS
    A WOMAN AND HER DOCTOR TRIED TO GET A TEST FOR THE VIRUS AND SHE WAS TOLD THAT THE CDC THEY WILL GET BACK TO HER AND 6 TO 10 BUSINESS DAYS
    THIS IS INSANITY, TRUMP IS PLAYING POLITICS WITH AN EPIDEMIC. AND BY NOT TESTING KEEPING AMERICA IN THE DARK ABOUT THE SEVERITY OF THE PROBLEM.THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT CHINA DID AND THIS IS WHY THE VIRUS BECAME AN EPIDEMIC IN CHINA. IT’S TIME AMERICA WOKE UP IT’S TIME FOR COMPETENT LEADERSHIP IT’S TIME TO ELECT AN HONEST MAN PRESIDENT
    BERNIE SANDERS IF WE NOMINATE HIM WILL CRUSH DONALD TRUMP IN NOVEMBER BECAUSE THERE ARE GOING TO BE SADLY AND UNNECESSARILY THOUSANDS OF DEATHS. THAT’S A FACT AND THEN PEOPLE ARE GOING TO WANT HEALTHCARE FOR EVERY PERSON IN AMERICA EVERYONE TESTED AND THE SICK TREATED. NOMINATE BERNIE SANDERS AND I GUARANTEE YOU HE WILL CRUSH DONALD TRUMP IN NOVEMBER. WE SHOULD ALSO CHANGE ALL OF OUR VOTING OVER TO THE WASHINGTON STATE SYSTEM WHERE YOU VOTE BY MAIL YOU GET YOUR BALLOT AND RETURN IT YOU HAVE A MONTH TO VOTE YOU’RE GIVEN A PAMPHLET EACH CANDIDATE CAN EXPLAIN THEIR VIEW IT’S EASY IT’S SIMPLE AND MORE PEOPLE VOTE BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE TO WAIT IN 5-HOUR LONG LINES WHERE A VIRUS IS FREE TO SPREAD.THEY WILL LIE THEY WILL CHEAT THEY WILL SUPPRESS THE VOTE THEY WILL CLOSE POLLING STATIONS THEY’VE DONE THIS ALREADY IMAGINE WITH A VIRUS RAGING WE NEED VOTE-BY-MAIL IN THIS COUNTRY IT’S ONLY SANE IT MAKES SENSE LET’S DO IT VOTE LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT BECAUSE IT JUST MIGHT

    • John Edward you are so right about this disaster!

    • 💯

    • John Edward it is Believable. Look what is in charge. South Korea has tested over 37,000 last week. trump Fired the Experts on Pandemics in 2018 and put Brain Dead pence in charge. They tested last I heard over 400 people and trump says it’s a SCAM a HOAX. The sad thing is that most of his supporters believe that

  8. Trump has assured us once the weather gets warmer in a few weeks, Corona will just go away. Don’t sell any shares….by Demand of The Orange King

  9. Skeptical of China? Better be more skeptical about what the Trump administration is doing and saying.

    Trump and China both have a boy who cried wolf problem.

  11. humm well watched trump run all his businesses down now it’s a country with a health crises and he gave the rich another interest break this week an says virus is dem hoax and it’s fine humm see how that goes seems crying has started though an body’s to

  12. Watch, in the next few weeks Trump will announce a new trade agreement China with that goes in favor of China. Why? Because that’s exactly what it will be, a favor to Xi Jinping/China in exchange for false reports coming out of China on what’s happening with the virus there. Why? So Trump can say “our economy is fine, the best, the maybe probably certainly the greaterest economy teh U.S. has ever seen and we’re helping China out in their biggest time of need” in his 2020 campaign rallies.

  13. Folks this is just getting started and I’m afraid this is going to get much much worse than is being reported! If a carrier can have it and not show symptoms! Think about what that means!

    If even half of the information being leaked out of China (by citizens and officials risking their lives to film and upload) is true, this is not being taken seriously enough by us Westerners. There is evidence to suggest that this is not the coronavirus as the scientific community understands it. Public panic is something that everyone wants to avoid but stressing the narrative that this is nothing more than an average flu, that is only a risk to the vulnerable, is dangerous. As a Canuck, we currently have no travel restrictions or federal preventative measures to stifle the spread so far. And, as a sick Canuck with no immune system thanks to necessary treatments, that scares the bejesus out of me.
