China reacted relatively later than Italy, and they are so much further along in progression. This makes absolutely no mathematical sense under any conservative calculation.
WHO had to issue an entire booklet telling people not to call it "China Flu" or "Wuhan Flu" and are now saying "it is uncertain it originated in China"
Yet they have no problem saying "Spanish Flu" all over their website and they even have a funny little pop quiz about it. Best part is, Spanish flu did not originate in Spain either, there are debates over the origin, and theories point towards Either England, France, or... China.

Let’s talk about survival. Individuals, groups, nations. Let’s talk about how fictional threats can teach us real survival skills. Let’s talk about why my fictional zombie book, “World War Z” was banned by the very real government of China and how that government has let another very real plague get out of control. No matter what I write about, zombies, World War 1, Minecraft, and even my new threat, Bigfoot, the theme is always the same: adapting to survive. Let’s talk about what it means to adapt to this new Coronavirus danger and what it will mean for all of us.
Sorry for the long post, but it is for me to make a case using the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic as an example.
If you guys didn't see the conspiracy theory spreading on Weibo that alleged that SARS-CoV-2 was actually introduced into China by the US. The original post stated
>Asahi TV reported this evening: The CDC's US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released astonishing news, suspecting that some of the more than 10,000 flu deaths were due to SARS-CoV-2, the inspection system had loopholes, and new detection methods have begun. Appealing to patients with COVID-19 symptom patients to be retested...
They provided the link to the Japanese news report and to US CDC website as evidence.
Firstly, none of the netizens who posted comment about this Weibo post actually checked the sources.
I do. Taiwan is the best china 🇹🇼🇹🇼🇹🇼
I’m curious how most Chinese citizens feel about the handling of the outbreak
I lived in China for 6 years, My wife is Chinese and my son was born in China. I love many aspects about China, its people and culture. This does not mean I love everything about China and I can and will be critical of things I think are wrong or need to Change. I will always be critical of the oppressive government as an example.
I love how the Chinese families are so close, I hate how these families let their kids take a crap on the floor while in line at the store.
A a historian I love the vast and rich cultural history of China, I hate how 100 people will try to get in front of you in line by rushing the window or whatever.
I love the food, I hate thinking I might be getting a fake egg that will kill me.
Etc. Just like any other place in the world it is ok to love and hate aspects of that place.
I will always call out what I believe to be government hacks who are either paid to make positive post and people who just hate their own country so much the have to prop... keep reading on reddit ➡
You may have noticed r/worldnews becoming increasingly pro-China. This is not just a result of increased wumao activity, but more importantly, a result of the r/worldnews moderators banning users who argue with the wumaos and post content critical of China.
I have already had 5 "legitimate" accounts banned, where 3 of which had never used the same device and always used different VPNs. This account was banned as a result of this comment .
I also mentioned this in a r/hongkong thread, where a user called chichang123 had difficulty believing moderators would flip allegiances so quickly (which is understandable since r/worldnews used to be ~90% anti-China whereas they're now mostly pro-China). So I made a new account called hellochichang which got banned within 3 hours and after 12 comments (https://imgur.com/a/P56... keep reading on reddit ➡
Obviously China is not perfect, I would argue far from it, but what’s the point in following a sub just to throw hate and spread negativity?
I joined because my parents are both Chinese, but I was born and raised in the UK, and I wanted to broaden my understanding of my own culture. But a good chunk of posts and comments are just “Fuck the CCP”.
Yes, we get it. The political situation in China is a shambles. But as far as I’m aware, that’s not what this sub is about. It’s about life in China.
How many of you have actually lived or even been to China?
I am trying to get back to China for work. I heard there were mandatory quarantines for people coming into China from hot zones. I also saw reports that a home quarantine was fine for those who had their own place and lived alone. The list of countries were Italy, South Korea, and Iran.
Did they add USA to this list now? My buddy lives in Shanghai but spends time in Dongguan. He landed in Hong Kong yesterday and tried to get into Shenzhen. They took him into quarantine and we haven't heard an update from him in a while now.
I don't see anyone else talking about this yet. I'm wondering if I stay in Hong Kong or Macau forn 15+ days if that will allow me to bypass the quarantine or if all Americans will just need to be quarantined.
Not sure how they plan on having the Canton Fair with this policy.
Edit: My buddy made it and they took him to some medical screening center. Then took him to a converted hotel. He has to record his temperature twice a day and slide it under the door.. Foo... keep reading on reddit ➡
Do people believe that the US caused coronavirus? I heard that the government was pushing that conspiracy theory
I am in Henan province. This is my first time to use reddit and my english is not so good. Ask something you want to know about the virus or china.（why I cant find a button to upload pics）
I am from Europe and went solotravelling in China. In Dujiangyan ( 都江堰) I got lost in the evening. I wanted to take a train back to Chengdu. I was at the wrong train station. Without asking for help three Chinese women tried to explain to me where I had to go, but I did not understand them.
Then two other men came and tried to explain. Must have been a funny but frustrating sight for them. This foreigner who did not understand. So there were five people trying to explain to me where I had to go.
Anyway, one man told me to follow him, he got a taxi with his phone and he took me all the way to the train station (other side of city). I tried to offer him money as a thank you. When he saw my money he RAN AWAY while saying "no no no".
So yea, I really liked how the people treated me. I did not even have to ask for help.
Felt like sharing this :)
They managed to coronise the world.
Edit: thank you for all the awards!
Hi dear redditors! I'm a Chinese based in Shanghai, daughter of 2 communists. Thanks to this community, I've been seeing things I couldn't be able to see while living in China and I'm truly grateful for that. As a local, I feel obligated to share more detailed information to you all so that more people from all over the world know what's actually going on inside the "Great Wall".
Cyber surveillance has long been practiced by CCP. The nearest Cyber Massacre happened in 2013 which is one year after Winnie the Pooh being in power, millions of individuals and contents have been erased. The second biggest, which was actually a complete Internet block happened in Xinjiang in 2017. That's why millions of Uyghurs got transferred to concentration camps and nobody knows shit until later it got revealed by the western media.
This time, as far as I know, will be worse. This week the Cyber Ministration of China announced that they are starting to implement this new Cyber Law from March 1 2020, ai... keep reading on reddit ➡
I stumbled into a Youtube rabbit hole and came across Nathan Rich who is creating Youtube videos while in china, getting millions of Coronavirus video views explaining the Chinese response to the virus using a digital timeline. His videos are aimed at the Chinese audience and have very similar lines of thought as CCP media.
One of his last videos ️"X EPIC CHINA: Barbarians Arrive" explains the history of the opium trade with the west and colonialism. It has 69k views. I would be interested to hear any history majors' view on it. (There are also some really questionable looong conspiracy comments in English on this video that are worth a read.)
His views on Dr. Li's death can be seen here.
Here you can see his timeline on the virus spread in China with 300k views and h... keep reading on reddit ➡
