There is a growing global concern that China may be attempting to downplay the severity of this latest outbreak of a deadly strain of Coronavirus in order to save face.
China has long been tight-lipped when it comes to news and events that aren’t complimentary to their cause. They are not unlike the now-defunct Soviet Union in that regard, particularly as it pertains to the attempting coverup of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in the 1980’s. Neither nation wants to admit that there is trouble brewing, despite the fact that the entire globe could be in peril.
With this latest virulent disaster quickly spreading throughout the world, China has received offers of help from the United States and beyond, but it appears as though Beijing is again too proud to accept it.
During a Tuesday news conference which included U.S. Health Secretary Alex Azar, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Robert Redfield, National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Disease (NCIRD) Director Nancy Messonnier, and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Director Anthony Fauci, officials said the outbreak is a “potentially very serious public health threat” in the United States, but that the current risk remains low.
Azar said the Chinese have refused continued offers from the U.S. to send CDC officials to the country to help with outbreak responses.
There have been several cases already diagnosed within the United States, including in some highly populated areas such as San Francisco and Chicago.
