10 Ways The Chinese Government Lied, Misled, & Messed-Up Early On In The Pandemic; Poll: Joe Biden Losing Trust on Chinese Coronavirus, and other C-Virus related stories

10 Ways The Chinese Government Lied, Misled, & Messed-Up Early On In The Pandemic:
A plethora of politicians and government officials across the globe screwed up in their handling of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The Chinese government, however, was acutely damaging with its ineptitude, because it, more than any other entity, had a chance to limit the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus when it first emerged in late 2019. Instead of trying to contain the virus with the help of the international community, however, the Chinese government lied, misled, and stalled. All of humanity has experienced the disastrous result of this negligence.
In his new book, Uncontrolled Spread, physician, senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb focused his considerable expertise on pointing out the ways in which the world's response to COVID-19 fell short, and how we can better prepare for the next inevitable pandemic. Early on in the book, he chronicled numerous examples of the Chinese government's inept, corrupt handling of what was then an emerging outbreak. Here are ten of them:
1. Silencing Genetic Sequencing.

In late December 2019, doctors around Wuhan started noticing people coming in with a strange pneumonia, and began sending patient samples to genomics companies for sequencing. The reports they received back were disturbing – it was a never-before-seen, SARS-like coronavirus. By January 1, provincial health officials instructed these companies to stop testing samples from the Wuhan outbreak and to destroy their remaining specimens. Two days later, China's top health authority ordered genomics labs not to publish any data related to the novel coronavirus.
2. Censoring Doctors.

Early on in the pandemic, Wuhan's local doctors quickly realized that a novel virus was spreading, and took to social media platforms like WeChat and Weibo to share information with each other. They were soon censored by the Chinese government, and posts related to what was then dubbed "Wuhan SARS' were suppressed. Many doctors were detained, interrogated, and threatened with prosecution. "Chinese scientists and physicians took risks, and their efforts saved lives," Gottlieb wrote.
Poll: Joe Biden Losing Trust on Chinese Coronavirus:
President Joe Biden is losing trust from the American people on the Chinese coronavirus, an Axios-Ipsos poll released Tuesday found.
According to the survey, less than half, 42 percent, trust the president “a great deal or a fair amount” on providing accurate information on the virus.
“This represents a seven percentage point drop from one month ago, a 10 percentage point drop from six months ago, and a 16-point decline from the inauguration (Biden’s high point on the question),” the survey found.
“He’s basically losing the expectations game,” Cliff Young, president of Ipsos U.S. public affairs, said. “Once the Delta variant raised its ugly head, it affected people’s lives, and now they’re adjusting their expectations, which is not good for him.” --->READ MORE HERE
