The victory against the pandemic, has not yet acquired, the end is not even in view that turf wars are going on. After the battle of the chloroquine, the polemic of the masks and tests, this is the war of words. It is necessary to find a responsible.
The context of the current war of words with one side :
- The trade war sino-american, which has animated the best part of 2019, and had held the world economic breath, continues. This is characterized with the president’s decision to Trump to no longer fund the world health organization (14 April 2020). The reason is related to the attitude of WHO’s deemed to be too conciliatory toward China.
- The disappearance foretold of some chinese journalists who have denounced the actions of the authorities.
- The Chinese ambassador in Paris, convened by The Drian to discuss the comments made.
- The credibility of the figures the chinese and the delay in their publication when we know the power of censorship.
Another of the truths set forth by this chinese diplomat : ” facts distorted that deserve an answer ” and here are the main items and messages :
- A delay in the action of europeans and americans during the two months that followed the first report from China and a month after the closure of Wuhan.
- The minimization of the pandemic by governments in europe and the u.s. ” this is a gripette “” that there was no need to worry, that in fact, the risk of getting in their country was minimal.”
- The vilification of the China media and experts to mock the strokes of good jokes and hoping for a “effect” Chernobyl.
- The absence of a working group to consider measures to combat the epidemic or the procurement of medical equipment necessary to avoid being caught short.
- The lack of readiness of the british authorities about prevention measures, health british.
- And finally, the resignation of the President of the european Council Research (ERC), Mauro Ferrari, has declared “to have lost faith in the system” european handling of the pandemic, and resigned with a bang. “
A trip to Taiwan, a country that is “close” to China, helps us to understand that the information was available and that it is important in pandemics take the right measures in time. Taiwan, having learned the lessons of SARS, was prepared for a virus attack by putting in place a command Centre of the health whose mission is the anticipation of these crises. The passengers were placed in quarantine since the 31st of December, at a time when China disclosed the information to the WHO. Without waiting for the beginning of January 2020, a cell of crisis management inter-ministerial has been put in place ; followed by complementary measures but coordinated centrally in the utmost transparency with the population. Anticipate, prepare for, respond to attack by acts to prevent any controversy have allowed this country to contain the epidemic. Many lessons will be learned from this example.
While the attention should be focused on the solutions health and economic crisis in progress and the statistics still depend on the availability of hospital beds, the healed and the death, the war of words has already begun. Will we witness the creation of a website to count the points.
Extract from the article in the Washington Post, which initiates the controversy of the words :
“The U.s. State Department warned of security problems at the laboratory of Wuhan, which is studying the coronavirus bats. Two years before the new pandemic of sars coronavirus is not rocking the world, officials of the embassy of the United States visited several times in a research centre in the chinese city of Wuhan and have sent two official warnings to Washington about inadequate security at the laboratory, which was conducting studies risky on coronaviruses of bats. The cables have been fed into discussions within the american government on the question of whether or not the Wuhan lab has been the source of the virus – even if conclusive evidence had not yet emerged. Washington Post, April 14, 2020.
We reproduce below the text of this chinese diplomat :
On April 8, after 76 days in solitary confinement, the order of containment of Wuhan, was finally lifted, bringing around its inhabitants in the streets to celebrate the return to normal life. At the beginning of the fight against the epidemic, the chinese leaders have proudly proclaimed ” the victory of Wuhan, will be the victory of Hubei. The victory of Hubei, will be the victory of the Nation “. Thus, the déconfinement of Wuhan shows that China emerged victorious in its battle against the epidemic of coronavirus.
However, it is more of a stage victory as a complete victory because, at the same time, today in the foreign country, the epidemic continues its mad race with 1.66 million people infected in the world, with 5 countries with more than 100 000 cases, of which 500,000 cases in the United States, and 4 countries deploring more than 10 000 deaths. The terrible ravages caused by the development of this scourge on the lives and health of affected populations, as well as on their economies and societies, we inspire concern and compassion. Our hope is that all countries of the world join their efforts to fight together against this common enemy and to triumph at the earliest.
And yet, at a time where the whole world is mobilised against the epidemic, the media who take themselves to be paragons of impartiality and objectivity, experts and politicians from certain western countries seem to be more concerned about libel, stigmatize and attack China to discuss ways to contain the epidemic at home and in the rest of the world. China’s victory on the epidemic, gives them heartburn. With their theses fabricated, according to which China has “slow to respond” and has ” hidden the truth “, they present it as the person in charge of the pandemic, and its victory on the coronavirus is is a heinous crime. On the other hand, that the western countries have under-estimated the severity of the virus, or they may have been slow to take measures ad-hoc, thus making the epidemic out of control, and not pose any problem of conscience and not disorder anything in their sleep. Some media and analysts have repeatedly stressed that China had, at first, lost three precious weeks “, arguing stubbornly that : “If the chinese authorities had responded three weeks earlier, they would have been able to considerably limit the global spread of the virus, and 95% of infections could be avoided. “
Notwithstanding the fact that the scientists needed time to study and understand this coronavirus hitherto totally unknown, let’s look more closely at what has made the China during these first three weeks : From the 30th of December last, we were posting publicly on the cases of pneumonia are unknown. From 3 January, we were regularly informed about the WHO and the world on the progress of the evil, and, in record time, we were able to identify the pathogen. On the 11th of January, we shared with the WHO, with the complete sequencing of the genome of the virus. On the 23rd of January, at the time of the closure of Wuhan, there was, in China, more than 800 people infected with hiv and only 9 abroad. However, it is more than a month after this date that the epidemic started in Europe and the United States.
If after having done so many things the first three weeks, we still believe that “China” has dragged on “, that therefore the Europeans and Americans during the two months that followed the first report from China and a month after the closure of Wuhan ? Their leaders have said that it was only a ” grippette “, that there was no need to worry, that the virus struck only the Yellow and that the risk to see it circulate in their countries was minimal. Their media and the experts, while accommodating a serenity blind of their country, sought to defame China, to mock the strokes of good jokes and hoping for a “effect” Chernobyl. On the other hand, he never found anyone to reflect on the measures to combat the epidemic or the procurement of medical equipment necessary to avoid being caught short. The Editor-in-chief of the british magazine the Lancet has called “a national scandal” the measures of prevention health in the uk. Recently, the President of the european Council Research (ERC), Mauro Ferrari, has declared “to have lost faith in the system” european handling of the pandemic, and resigned with a bang.
Media and experts have accused China of concealing the real figures of the pandemic. According to them, with 1.4 billion people, how can I believe that she has had only about 80 000 people infected and only a little over 3,000 deaths ! They have concluded that China had necessarily lied to. And yet if China had obtained this result, it is neither by falsehood or by concealment, but because the chinese government has taken measures to prevent and control the most comprehensive, the most stringent and the most stringent to detect, report, isolate and treat people contaminated with a maximum of reactivity, in order first to safeguard the life and health of its population. China was not afraid to amputate his GDP thousand billion yuan, to inject hundreds of billions of yuan in resources, to mobilize more than 40 000 health care workers from the four corners of the country to go to support of Wuhan and Hubei, and ultimately defeat the epidemic in only two months.
However, at the same time, in the West, we have seen politicians tear to retrieve voice ; to advocate the immunization of a group, abandoning their citizens alone in the face of the slaughter viral; if entredérober of medical supplies ; sell to private structures and equipment purchased with public money to enrich themselves ; we did sign on to the boarders of the retirement home certificates of the ” Waiver to emergency care “; providers of the EHPADs have abandoned their posts overnight, deserted collectively, leaving it to die residents of hunger and disease ; we saw the Commander of an aircraft carrier to ask his superiors for permission to come ashore to allow sailors infected to be treated to earth. He has been sacked… and I could go on. And yet, I have not seen a lot of news stories or in-depth survey of the major western media revealing these facts. These media and these experts, both enamored of objectivity and impartiality, have they a conscience ? Do they have ethics ?
To denigrate the efforts of China, some politicians and western media have pointed the finger at the WHO, accusing him of being too pro-chinese. Some have even called to remove the sources of financing of the Organization. Since the beginning of the epidemic, China has cooperated closely with WHO. She was informed, without delay, and invited its experts to undertake a mission for the field visits. The Organization has praised measures taken by China as well as its results regarding the fight against the epidemic. She has even said that the chinese approach was a new benchmark for the world. It was an objective and impartial evaluation. However, WHO has been the subject of a real seat of the western countries, some launching the same attacks ad-hominem against its Director-general, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. The taiwan authorities, supported by more than 80 French parliamentarians in a statement co-signed, have even used the word “nigger” to attack him. I still don’t understand what could go through the head of all these elected French.
The western media antichinois we are attacking always with the same two processes : first, by inventing lies, and then pounding them relentlessly. Fear of being disproved ? No, because the lie ” short, just let go “. Even if it ends up being found out, the rumor, such a virus has already done the tour of the world. And to give it body, they repeat in a loop, like a scratched record. “A lie repeated 1000 times becomes a truth. “Such is their credo and their modus operandi. In their lies ressassés, China, which has managed to defeat the epidemic and to safeguard the interests first of his people, passes for the ” sinner “. As for the politicians, journalists stationed in China, the poor “sinologists” of some western countries that are delivered to forfaitures repeated, which were so few cases in the lives of their fellow-countrymen, and who are so quick to accuse others, they are erected now in ” judges “, posture oh so bad for them as for others.
A cyber-writer has said something very profound : “When cuttlefish is in danger, it spits its ink to blacken the water and took the opportunity to take flight. It is a well known tactic of some political elites and western cultural. “They wanted to simply be attributed to China the responsibility for their own inability to cope with the epidemic and the multiple tragedies that followed, and so,” to whiten completely. “
By the time I finished my text, I discovered a report on the Net. On 8 April, the academic journal world-renowned, PNAS (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences) has published an article co-written by academics in british and German entitled network Analysis the phylogenetic genomes of SARS-CoV-2. The first author of the article is Dr. Peter Forster of the University of Cambridge. According to the study, the researchers classified the new coronavirus in three types (A, B, and C) according to their development. The type A is the closest of the virus extracts of the bat and pangolin. It is the one most frequently identified among hiv-infected patients in the United States and Australia. That is, what researchers call ” the root of the epidemic “. The strains of type B are variants of the type A and are mainly present in China. Those that are spreading on a large scale in Europe are those of the type C. Unfortunately, it appears that the results of the research of Dr Peter Forster are not interested in the western mainstream media.
