    China blocks coronavirus discussion at united nations security council

    China is downplaying its involvement in this unprecedented global event. On March 26, during security council meeting, China effectively blocked a draft proposal prepared by Estonia focusing on the concerns about the extensive effects of the pandemic in the world's peace and security, as well as the importance of transparency.

    A draft proposal prepared by Estonia highlights ‘growing concern about the unprecedented extent of the COVID-19 outbreak in the world, which may constitute a threat to international peace and security.’

    China, which has been indirectly held responsible for the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak especially by the Trump administration, has managed to obstruct a discussion on the pandemic in the UN Security Council with help from Russia and South Africa.
    The UNSC, under the presidency of China this month, has not yet scheduled any meeting to discuss the rapidly-escalating coronavirus crisis even as the number of COVID-19 cases across the world crossed 530,000 and over 24,000 people have died due to the disease.



    A US State Department official said the Security Council had a unique and important role to play in combating the global coronavirus pandemic that poses major risks to international peace and security.

    A draft proposal prepared by Estonia highlights “growing concern about the unprecedented extent of the COVID-19 outbreak in the world, which may constitute a threat to international peace and security.”

    The draft also calls for “full transparency” over the outbreak, which clearly refers to growing criticism that China is hiding vital details about origin about the virus.

    China’s Mission to the UN tweeted Thursday that COVID-19 “is a common enemy of all of us. China is also a victim. China has successfully contained the spreading of the pandemic and is doing its utmost in helping other countries. We will never accept stigma, discrimination or politicization on this issue.”

    Earlier this month, China’s UN Ambassador had said that there is no need to panic over the Coronavirus epidemic and that Beijing does not plan to discuss the situation in the Security Council during its Presidency this month.

    The world must make china pay a big price for this
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    While most humans will continue to remain in the dark as to how this pandemic came about (source cause) there are sure to be people that know if it truly was incidental, or otherwise. The best 'revenge', if you will, is to take away the power that China has built over other nations in regards to manufacturing.

    While taking into consideration things that have been learned in regards to environmental impact and manufacturing, the industries can be rebuilt, opening the doors to more employment that is not electronically, service or hospitality based. It would mean some groups accepting the idea that trades and skills other than 'higher education' are just as, if not more so, important to the survival of society.

    I would like to think that maybe the political pressure cooker that has been created in this country can be redirected towards a common goal.

    This does not mean we all are gonna be holding hands in the shower. I'm just tired of all the negativity and doomsayers screeching to the skies....
    Quarantine is to restrict the movement of sick people.

    ... and that will be the best "revenge," to continue bringing home - Because we started bringing home manufacturing since Trump took office - and cut that umbilical cord!

    ... Yes, all that, but revenge is not a bad idea after all!!

    Chinese(bio-lab)researchers isolated deadly bat coronaviruses near Wuhanl market

    The reality of this thing is they were either poking around with this bug out of a natural curiosity, or more likely they were tampering with it to weaponize it, take your pick, regardless, they lost it and then very obviously committed to a course of total deception, and total obstructionism since. They are responsible for the millions of dead to come from this horror, yet the US media, along with virtually the entire democratic party and its US chamber of commerce cronies, continue to fecklessly carry their water for them, and that will require just as resolute a response as the Chinese communists themselves! Treason is not protest, and companies such as google, and microsoft who have openly thrown in with the communists must be made to pay for this! This article is very important,
    Chinese government researchers isolated more than 2,000 animal viruses, including deadly bat coronaviruses, and carried out scientific work on them just three miles from a wild animal market identified as the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Several Chinese state media outlets in recent months touted the virus research and lionized in particular a key researcher in Wuhan, Tian Junhua, as a leader in bat virus work.


    The coronavirus strain now infecting hundreds of thousands of people globally mutated from bats believed to have infected animals and people at a wild animal market in Wuhan. The exact origin of the virus, however, remains a mystery.

    Reports of the extensive Chinese research on bat viruses likely will fuel more calls for Beijing to make public what it knows about such work.

    “This is one of the worst cover-ups in human history, and now the world is facing a global pandemic,” Rep. Michael T. McCaul, Texas Republican and ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said last week. Mr. McCaul has said China should be held accountable for the pandemic.

    The only things that's been preventing that from happening is the corporations that set up the supply chains in the first place . It's taken the current perfect storm to make that obvious . The true strength of the US economy is it's consumer market , not it's corporations . The corporations are weak , and in constant need of bail outs , at the expense of the consumer market.
