I’m actually shocked by all these headlines I’m seeing about how China botched their response, considering China shut down cities and forced people not to leave. Meanwhile people from the US are free to do whatever they’d like (e.g. take their cheap flight or cruise to anywhere in the world). Even the Wall Street journal had a similar headline recently, am I missing something here?

No, China is definitely the right answer for who downplayed it the most.

Who cares if China downplayed this? We saw this coming since December. Just two weeks ago we were told don’t worry, it’s only 15 cases, it will be handled (which anyone could see was a lie) yet here we are. America botched the response. What is happening here is our fault.

A few actions China took (and why we are screwed)... 1) There mobilized an entire system to check your temperature everywhere. The moment you left your apartment? Someone there to take a reading. The moment you got to a store? Someone there to take a reading. The moment you got on a bus? Someone there to take a reading. 2) They have specially designed outbreak centers. People who are sick don't go to the normal hospital. You go to a specially designed outbreak center where they immediately run tests. You don't leave until the results are back. 3) They have specially designed quarantine centers. You don't go home or to a hotel to quarantine and risk getting your family/ other ppl sick. You stay in a quarantine center where there are properly trained/geared doctors and nurses on hand. 4) In areas that were on lockdown, they instilled a 2 hour per day limit of being outside per household. Meaning, in your house of 5, one person a day could go outside for a max of 2 hours (enforced through facial recognition and cell phone tracking + people are obedient) 5) Umm... people are obedient and care about the greater good? (Looking at all the people out and about like nothing is happening and have made zero lifestyle changes)

Every damn country wants to blame someone instead of taking charge and fixing the problem. As Americans we should be ashamed that we were so arrogant to think we could have avoided this or even dealt with this better than China did. We need more transparency and action from the federal government for better testing and statistics.

Not to be overly political, but there’s a stark difference in the response from both countries. China knew of it and purposely silenced the outspoken (not like its hard for them with state propaganda), then took drastic action with the quarantines. On the other hand, trump completely downplayed the significance of the threat and has made himself look so incompetent from his botched Oval Office address and then the google website shenanigans lol. And no I’m not a huge lib btw

While I'm no big fan of China (in Donald Trump's voice), this is pure deflection and propaganda to avoid scrutiny at your lack of self-preparedness and swift response to an emergency.
