The NYT’s published a piece that was titled ”China Bought the West Time. The West Squandered It”. This piece accused America and other western nations of failing to help China and then failing to help their own people. This is just plain wrong, Chine ripped people from their homes and put them into confinement so the virus could be stopped, they also spent the first few weeks of the outbreak locking up anyone who talked about the virus online. The United States, as well as other western nations, has taken measures to stop the spread of the virus in a way that doesn’t destroy lives and trample civil liberties.
