This is a quite interesting article contrasting the response of China & the US to the coronavirus epidemic & speculating about the political ramifications in terms of competition between the two countries for world dominance. There’s more to it than the article lays out–like those 700 US military bases all over the world–but there is also the economic competition between the two where Chinese exploitation of Uyghur, child, & sweatshop labor gives it an advantage. We should not get too caught up in the power politics of this worldwide health crisis so much as understand the complete failure of the two political systems to address it & their chicanery in manipulating it.
