Taiwan helping to evacuate its nationals and others from Peru. Interesting to see no Chinese or Hong Kongers on flight (we know dozens of HKers are stranded in Peru). But then Beijing (& HK by extension) refuses to let Taiwan exist & shuts them out of , so not surprising.

Poor media strategy and disastrous performance. If insists on not recognising Taiwan in any way to appease China, come out and be honest about it. Explain the policy and the constraints.

Here is an idea for “critical thinking”: how about the fact that it’s not about “membership” but “observership” and “meaningful participation.” Let’s also conveniently ignore the fact that China & WHO have an MOU that very clearly politicizes what should be an apolitical issue.

I don’t understand the current scrutiny of Chinese people around the world shipping medical supplies to Wuhan in January and Feb. Like, everybody was sending medical supplies to China in January and February. Which was the obvious and correct thing to do. Can we move on plz?

Not the first. Happened in Hong Kong. A cursory google for “first pet coronavirus” would have brought that up

Someone told me 「美国加油」("Stay strong, America!") was banned on Weibo (China's version of Twitter). I thought they were joking. I tried it myself. Lo and behold, this phrase "violates relevant laws or community regulations." 微博上真的不能发「美国加油」四个字。

2 Wuhan frontline doctors got sick. Then they got better. Now they've tested positive again for the coronavirus. talked to them and 2 asymptomatic Wuhan residents. Their cases suggest our grasp of the outbreak in Wuhan is shaky.

Notice a pattern? Turkey has tossed out a batch of Chinese-made coronavirus tests because of "inaccurate results." Spain withdrew 9,000 Chinese kits because they had just 30% accuracy. The Czech Republic found that 80% of its kits from China were faulty.

Powerful reporting by and pictures by . Like so many other places dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, it is the poor who are the least prepared and the hardest hit.
