No, world history will remember who caused this massive problem in the first place. The CCP has no honorable standing or proud face to hold up for the pandemic that they helped to cause. Hypocrites. If it hadn't been spread by the CCP's own inept handling of early warnings and signs by their own doctors and medical professionals in China, then your statement might have meant something. It means nothing but a poor attempt to put a "good light" on the CCP that done nothing to deserve any sort of admiration.

In Thailand, new cases hit 20,000 for the first time on Wednesday -- and then again on Thursday.

Overwhelmed mortuaries are renting refrigerated containers to store bodies, while medical and other frontline workers are exhausted.

If the articles had numbers to support the dramatic claim, it would be more credible. So far, I have not seen an account of a big death wave in Thailand.

Here in Tokyo, the death rate with Covid has been hovering between 0 and 1 for the last few days.... if there is this giant wave of death out there, should we not see it here too?

Overwhelmed mortuaries are renting refrigerated containers to store bodies, while medical and other frontline workers are exhausted.

Intentionally disingenuous.

Read hastily, it would imply that there is an overflow of dead bodies.

However, that is not the case, the "store bodies" is in case there are too many, currently there are not, it's just a precaution.

The writers cleverly added "overwhelmed" and "exhausted" as qualifiers.

Nice trick, but rational people don't get fooled by fear mongering so easily.

If you mean China's contribution to the cause of the pandemic then you are correct. Please remember Chinese government's attempt to jail and suppress anyone that initially spoke up that there was a problem happening in Wuhan. The lack of transparency by the Chinese government is what created this havoc.

China "will strive to deliver two billion doses of vaccines to the world" this year!

This is a formiddable force of fighting the COVID19! When China is struggling her own panedemics against this dangeros virus, she still managing to save the world, to help others to get the vaccines!

China's vaccine is crap!!!

Ask the people in the Maldives if they are happy to have received the Sinovac. In three words, it didn't work. No one now wants the Sinovac except various country health ministers who have received electronic payments in yuan.
