  • First of all, this virus would less likely start in US.(either WMD or wild animal consumption) they do not need in the first place. Secondly, infrastructure well built in developed countries. So they do not need in rush. Thirdly, the power of control, Not a single westerner like it. I mean it. some westerners saying how much they love China is because they never in deep touch with China. So if you are from western world, there is no need to envy this. there is an old saying in China : 生在福中不知福(Fools never know when they are well off.)

  • While many hate communism, there are good to it if the government is aware of what it needs to do for its ppl. It is a country of 1 billion ppl and chaos is easy of there are no iron fist control. With that said, this enables the country to do almost anything it wanted to at the fastest and cheapest rate. Unlike US where military contractors and other private companies gets huge chunks of money from the development. It's idea is wages of ppl must be sufficient Vs the development. When cost are low, they can afford to pay workers better. This can be reflected by huge amount of Chinese going for holidays around the world. It's white and blue collar groups are growing and this sustain the country. Most major cooperation are owned or co-owned by the government thus diverting back the money to the country for development such as railway and roads. This is something the few rich at West will not allow to happen. Each country has its unique way to handle situations and in China, they know their strength is people. They have lot and lot of people.

  • China: Builds a hospital in 10 days Also China: Attempts to cover up the Wuhan virus instead of actually treating it, as a result it has spread to a multitude of different countries. Still refuses to reveal the true death toll and number of infected to save face.

  • Speed is not the point dude and never try to describe the event as if Chinese government did it well they didn't. They hid things and even fined a doc who originally said that there's the virus. And to those who admire the 10-day shit: would you like to give up the process of discussion, the voting rights, freedom of speech, freedom of news, rule of law, democracy and a lot of things you have now to achieve that shit? Understand the situation better then talk please
