Good question and I am glad to see the question asked. After all I have been asking this same question for months now. The way the US and the UK are acting, “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark…“ (Act-I, Scene-IV – William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet)….you know, I had to read that play when I was a kid!
Beijing has called on Washington to address the concerns of its own citizens about the US response to the Covid-19 pandemic, while condemning American politicians for shifting blame for the crisis squarely onto China’s shoulders.Asked to comment on a series of American media reports on the US government’s slow and often inept response to the health crisis on Monday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang relayed some of the questions raised by the reporting, asking whether Washington may have swept information about the virus under the rug.“Recently there have been many voices in the United States that question and worry about whether the US government has responded to the epidemic in a timely and effective manner,” Geng said, adding his hopes that the US would soon answer their questions. They wanted to get the facts straight: when did the first case occur in the United States? Is the US government hiding something? Why is it so desperately seeking to pin the blame on other countries and international organizations?
‘What’s the US hiding?’ Exactly what I was thinking and have been saying…
