If someone was the victim of China's early information hidding behavior, they should be the Chinese people, not the European or American people. Chinese people especially WUHAN people have suffered and struggled one month before the break out of the global pandemic. The news has already spread out all over the world during two months, but nobody cared in thinking that this is China's own problem without any specific attention and empathy. The slow actions of the European and American governments are the real root cause of the current situation. Stop blaming for blaming and stop pushing the responsibility to others. Be an adult.

Bravo on a fantastic podcast. Here's to hoping that Michèle Flournoy will be in the Executive Branch come January 2021!
