    What difference does it make whether China's number are true or not. They are likely understating - that only makes the Pandemic worse.

    And, suppressing such alternative views does not permit Americans the opportunity to assess such conflicting perspectives.

    Knowledge is good.

    Lying China officials knew of coronavirus in December, ordered cover-up, report says.

    Lying China accounts for 95 percent of U.S. imports of ibuprofen, 91 percent of hydrocortisone, 70 percent of acetaminophen, 40 to 45 percent of penicillin, and 40 percent of heparin, according to Commerce Department data. In all, “80 percent of the U.S. supply of antibiotics are made” in China, warned Senator Chuck Grassley in an August 2019 letter to HHS and FDA officials. Grassley said that inspections on drugs imported from other countries needed to be stepped up.

    “It was a blunder of epic proportions that we allowed the manufacture of penicillin to leave our shores,” said Rosemary Gibson, author of the 2018 book China Rx: Exposing the Risks of America’s Dependence on China for Medicine. “Right now, we have virtually no capacity in the United States to make even basic drugs for treating coronavirus, or antibiotics for infections that may come with it, including bronchitis or pneumonia.”​

    “I think nations are going to question their dependence on one another through the global supply chain, and I think people are going to rethink whether it’s a good idea to be so reliant on a totalitarian China that blames everyone else in the world for their problems, and is not a responsible stakeholder or honest broker. One outcome of this is that the perception of China as a bad actor is going to be crystallized,” said Kazianis.​

    “I wouldn’t be surprised if you see a lot of other countries rethinking their reliance on China.” Kazianis added.

    Ya, I had saved that one for future use. I think I aIso have a few promises of 2-1/2 million dead in the US stashed somewhere.
    Looking forward to when they get back to,

    I presume that you've seen evidence that China lied about their numbers?

    And they don't seem to remember how the numbers might have been 2 1/2 million.

    Seriously?

    You're seriously still taking China's numbers as the truth?

    Do you still believe the number of COVID deaths the Chinese have reported to be accurate?

    I've seen plenty.

    Just the simple math alone doesn't add up.

    Do you still believe the number of COVID deaths the Chinese have reported to be accurate?

    Digging Richard Millhouse Nixon up and burning him in effigy on national TV would be a start in ending this subservience and cult worship of China.

    A year on the forum and you still don't know how to get around the WaPo paywall?
    You're right people really don't like you.

    Someone who posts statements such as "Now there's a post that didn't age well" would be presumed to have seen new evidence, not something that just does not feel right

    Hey, it's the WaPo for Gods sake,
    They are the ones who eulogized,
    Abū Bakr al-Baghdadi as an ‘Austere Religious Scholar’
    and
    Qasem Soleimani “American attack at Iraq airport kills revered Iranian military leader”
