He is singling out Taiwan for attacking him (an indirect acknowledgement that it is a country?).

More love from China for the WHO and they don't have to worry about the US cutting their funding.
Tedros is a disgrace for colluding with China.


...and criticising countries for policitising Covid-19 and not acting at the national level when WHO was the first to collude with China, said there was no risk of human tranmission, and condemned travel restriction measures.

I think WHO made that error to announcing something when it's still unknown. I think China's soft power is pretty big

can I shut my mind for six months? If I dont die of the virus, I will get done mentally thanks to anxiety.

God help us all.
Best not to read too much if it's causing you stress. I take one day at a time. If I get it I get it. It feels like Russian roulette. I still take precautions and interact with others as if I got it

I find it fascinating and scary at the same time to see how much risks people are willing to take just to do a job that has no benefit for society at all.

So many people see the "economy" as some essential holy grail for life. Well, I've got news for you, fuckers: Your health is the real holy grail. Without a properly working body, you are fucked.

So maybe think about if a system that forces you to go to work despite a virus raging around the world is really wise.

And don't even start with the capitalism bullshit that its the only way. It isnt. There are countless alternatives that grant people a minimum of income, even if they dont have to work. And no, dipshits, I don't talk about "Socialism". Don't even fucking start with this "capitalism is not perfect, but do you want socialism?" bullshit. Its not a two way choice. Educate yourselves, because change will come.

But of course, the rich and powerful want to keep their status. So in the upcoming months, we will see the really ugly face of it all. Governments will force people to go to work again, the numbers will rise and a lot of people will die.

Unfortunately, what can you do other than deliberately not go to work. Due to lack of government strong directives (France) i still have to go to work and take the risks, other smaller factories in the same domain have closed down and i can tell you they are not necessary to life either.

Basically, it is the government fault as we totally rely upon the director's conscience, or lack of.

You are missing the big picture of the economy.
Even if the death toll is DOUBLED or even TRIPLED, the economy will easily have enough people to work with.
So if we went back to work and the deaths increased dramatically, the economy would have absolutely no problem.
It would make no difference whether you are alive or dead, because plenty would still be alive.

daily death toll over past two weeks:

25: Mar: 21,283
26: Mar: 24,074 (+2791, +13%) rate of change:
27 Mar: 27,345 (+3271, +14%) x1.17
28 Mar: 30,863 (+3518, +13%) x1.07
29 Mar: 34,067 (+3204, +10%) x0.91
30 Mar: 37,776 (+3709, +11%) x1.15
31 Mar: 42,313 (+4537, +12%) x1.22
01 Apr: 47,203 (+4890, +12%) x1.08
02 Apr: 53,182 (+5979, +13%) x1.22
03 Apr: 58,897 (+5715, +11%) x0.96
04 Apr: 64,696 (+5799, +10%) x1.01
05 Apr: 69,433 (+4737, +7%) x0.82
06 Apr: 74,660 (+5227, +8%) x1.10
07 Apr: 82,043 (+7383, +10%) x1.41
08 Apr: 88,457 (+6414, +8%) x0.87

This is all with the caveat that some deaths in France were added from prior days from nursing homes, still this list is an indicator for how things are trending, overall growth is still exponential but some countries are showing great improvements.

Average growth from 27 Mar-01 Apr: x1.10
Average growth from 02 Apr-08 Apr: x1.06

Holy shit ring the churchbells, people, I actually agree with NADALalot for once.

The economy does not give the tiniest bit of shit if you live or not, it can go on easily without the old, weak and unlucky ones.

So to keep the economy going strong, we would have to sacrifice a lot of people as fast as possible.

Thats why some people become mass murderers when they judge the problem only from the economic perspective.

Watch closely who is willing to do that killing in your country and who is not. Its a good guideline for the next vote.

Your profanity and anger are a poor mask for your ignorance.
