The most important lesson: you can’t trust China

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

China could have been the hero in this coronavirus crisis. They could have alerted the world immediately about the outbreak in Wuhan. They could have shared their data and allowed health officials from other countries to help. They could have quarantined Wuhan early, stopping flights in and out of that city. They could have stopped the spread of the coronavirus.

China could have been the hero, but instead, they covered up the outbreak in Wuhan, they delayed reporting the outbreak, they denied access to foreign health officials, and they allowed flights in and out of Wuhan for months after the outbreak.

China can’t be trusted.

China lied about the coronavirus infection in Wuhan, allowing it to spread all over the world and kill thousands of people so far. China is still lying about the outbreak, thereby making any data they share completely useless. Data is only useful if it is accurate. So, other countries like the UK, the US, Italy, etc. had to start with their own data to try to stop the virus.

Worse, the WHO is lying for China, too, so we can’t trust their data either.

Remember way back in January when the WHO used Chinese authorities to tell us there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission?

Tucker Carlson interviewed Marion Smith, Executive Director of Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, to discuss China and the WHO.

We should not trust China, ever.

End our supply-chain relationship with China

The coronavirus pandemic has exposed the dangers of the global supply chain and its reliance on China. President Trump campaigned on the need to fix our relationship with China, maintaining that China was using unfair trade practices against the US. He started a “trade war” imposing tariffs on Chinese goods. This was a good start but the coronavirus crisis is showing the need for the US to divest from China and diversify the sources of our supplies for our own manufacturing to other countries like India, Vietnam, and others.

President Trump’s economic advisor, Peter Navarro explained recently in a press conference,

One of the things that this crisis has taught us, sir, is that we are dangerously overdependent on a global supply chain. Never again should we rely on the rest of the world for our essential medicines and countermeasures.

The president said the coronavirus crisis,

…shows the importance of bringing manufacturing back to America so that we are producing, at home, the medicines and equipment and everything else that we need to protect the public’s health.

The supplies that are most important to us during this crisis usually come from China. Items like face masks, gloves, ventilators and other medical equipment are now in short supply because of the global pandemic. Now medical authorities in the US are asking people to make masks for our nurses, doctors, patients, and first responders. This shows the folly of depending on China or any other country for essential supplies.

The idea that we should not have all our eggs in one basket applies not only to investment but also, and more importantly, to the global supply chain. Many companies that have been hurt by the disruption will learn their lesson and looks for suppliers closer to home.

Because companies all over the world are dependent on China for parts and supplies, China has the power to disrupt not only private companies, but also the economies dependent on their supplies. That is too much power for a country that lies about epidemics, uses international organizations to perpetuate its lies,  and has aspirations to be the preeminent country in the world.
