Jan. 1: China tells Trump admin that this is a horrific pandemic. Jan 20: First American gets coronavirus. The time we lost waiting for him to realize what everyone was telling him is heartbreaking.
Aggressive screening might have helped contain the coronavirus in the United States. But technical flaws, regulatory hurdles and lapses in leadership let it spread undetected for weeks.

This information on China is not accurate. Please do not play fast and loose with the facts concerning China's handling of the virus to make the US look worse. Both governments mishandled this.

On Jan 1, rather than warning the US, hospital authorities reprimanded Dr. Ai Fan for telling a colleague about a mysterious illness. Only on Jan 20 did the CCP acknowledge human-to-human transmission. You dishonor Dr. Ai when you selfishly rewrite history

I don’t want to defend Trump’s response in anyway, but it’s not true that China told the US that it was a pandemic on 1st January. They didn’t even acknowledge human transmission until later in the month. China was still arresting doctors for spreading ‘rumours’ in early January.

You have to be careful about tweeting things like this. It might not seem like it matters much to you in the US, but the CCP arrests doctors, suppresses free speech, and commits ethnic cleansing on a massive scale. Don’t give them a free propaganda boost.

Sorry, but no such thing happened on January 1st; quite the opposite, in fact, occurred for several weeks thereafter.

Incredible that they're fine with keeping up this bad and objectively wrong tweet despite people presenting evidence to the contrary. I learned a lot about these people today.

This isn’t accurate. China covered up until January 20, and did not come fully clean then. Timeline here:

Just so you know, my friends on the mainland think this piece is the best. And a few are “free thinkers” but others are such nationalists they posted Mao’s poem about stopping communicable disease.
