Australian News Editor Says, Coronavirus Made In China But No One Will Admit It

8China called many countries racist even after its ban on its own citizens

Hartcher recalled how China imposed strict restrictions of movement on Wuhan citizens and various parts of China, yet called countries like Singapore, Canada, Japan, USA and other South Asian countries racist after they imposed travel bans to and from China. In fact, Canberra was accused of over-reaction when the Morrison government decided to also impose a travel ban on travel from and through China in an effort to protect Australia from the virus.

9What people really feel

Hartcher says a noted veteran political commentator, Willy Wo-Lap Lam of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, told him “The official state media have glorified Xi as the brilliant and effective man to deal with the outbreak. In actual fact, this is the toughest test of his power since he took over nine years ago. He’s accused of not divulging the truth about the virus and the number of casualties, of being too slow to mobilise medical supplies to the affected area, and for the people in the huge province of Hubei being left to their own devices under quarantine, without adequate resources from the central government.”

He went on to say “People do not believe the official version because of the long-standing tradition of the Chinese Communist Party to hide the facts and glorify the supposed achievements of the top leaders.

10A clear case of “Made in China” and the country should admit it

The article rightly implies that the Coronavirus is a clear “made in China” product and it can easily be said that this is the result of “China’s persistent tolerance of unsafe animal and food handling practices” Hartcher concludes “This is preposterous yet somewhat successful “discourse management”. How so? Because no leader, no official in Australia has had the courage to speak the plain truth to this authoritarian propaganda. No, Beijing, you made this disaster. We are merely trying to survive it.”
