Now it is becoming obvious who China's friends are, and who her enemies are. In the West, many nations and individuals are celebrating the short-term difficulties that the Chinese nation is facing, pouring salt into the wound, while giving birth to anti-Chinese sentiments.

Even the WHO (World Health Organization) has been warning not to impose travel bans against the countries affected by coronavirus. And it is the WHO, which is praising Beijing repeatedly and loudly, for its performance during the fight against the new virus.

But no matter what doctors say, and what the objective data is, several Western countries have been maliciously smearing China's determined and successful efforts to contain and combat the epidemy. They exaggerate the danger, spreading fear among the people all over the world. In a spiteful, manipulative and illogical way, they are connecting the epidemic to the entire Chinese system.

Whereas Russia, which is a close ally of China, but even Japan which is often politically antagonistic to Beijing, are keeping it relatively cool, feverishly working on developing an effective vaccine, the United States and many European countries are spreading fake news, issuing travel warnings, and effectively banning their citizens from travelling to Mainland China, even banning foreigners who have recently (within 14 days) visited China, from entering the United States.

Following bizarre logic, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar recently defended the actions of his government:

"The risk of infection for Americans remains low and with these and our previous actions we are working to keep the risk low."

Anti-Chinese xenophobia in the United States is on the rise. Chinese people are banned from entering some restaurants, and racist punches are thrown everywhere.

Some statements are so racist, that they are actually illegal, even in the United States itself. One of the readers (with the handle name @melpol) of a large media site Unz.com, recently commented on my re-printed essay about the determined fight of China against the disease:

I agree it is being overhyped, and there may be many underlying reasons for that. We will see what happens in Japan now that the contagion has clearly established itself here. I don't see panic--not on the surface anyway (I'll see how many students show up for my English classes on Tuesday). Instead I see more denial here. I'm not terribly worried about the new corona virus. I was in Indonesia in December-January, and they had lots and lots and lots of Chinese tourists and some bug going around, which prior to hearing the news, I already pegged as a corona virus, producing ferocious coughing fits. I caught it with what appears to have been a six-day latency and my husband ten days after that, right after I started congratulating myself for not having given it to him. The more I hear about the bug the more I think we may have had it. (I hear Indonesia has finally acquired the test for the virus, but they might not have much incentive to use it if they have to take an economic hit as a result.) My diabetic husband thought he had pneumonia. I got him some fresh garlic and told him to bite off tiny bits and chew them slowly. That is a natural antiviral that the MSM will not tell you about, and it cleared him up in a few hours. Another thing the news will not talk about is the apparent disparity in severity of this bug between different places. There may be environmental factors that predispose people to this, including China's notorious air pollution, and the highly controversial 5G that was introduced in Wuhan and about 50 other Chinese cities late last year. Just a couple of days ago, Switzerland put a moratorium on 5G over health concerns.
