    While I understand the reason for the restrictions, I remember very well China’s protests when other countries did that and calling it ‘racist’. I also remember the WHO stating that travel bans are unnecessary and counterproductive....

    Of course, right to the top of the viral Olympics leaderboard, anything China can do we can do better (even when it's a bad thing). Prepare to see Wumao smugness levels double.

    "China bars foreigners" will do them about as much good as "US raises import tariffs" did them in 1930

    Seriously if I decide to give up my citizenship I'd give my reason as "Trump" and I think they wouldn't question me. Won't even look at past tax returns. Cuz Trump.

    But... China banning foreigners adds weight to the idea that maybe they have otherwise got it under control. Why cut off income if the disease is rampant? Seems only beneficial to the CCP to cut off foreigners if they genuinely increase disease risk.

    Oops. Showing my stupidity again. Foreigners in = foreigners out to tell the story. I always get there in the end.
