Opportunity Knocks, Perhaps?

The message from China is that they have the  virus beaten but there is the possibility of a resurgence as the result of travellers bringing the infection into China from abroad.

Worth recalling that China’s preferred means of government is lies and misinformation. How convenient would it be if future deaths and disruption in China could be blamed on infections from other countries rather than on the “China virus”, as Trump has mischievously characterised it? How brilliantly ironic would it be if the Chinese police state could use the pandemic, which originated under its rule, as the opportunity to  promote its repressive model of governance as best suited to meeting the challenges of a globalised world albeit put at risk by liberal systems which are no longer fit for purpose?

May be not…maybe.
