So the net effect is that China's image is worsening dramatically, regardless of Trump's verbal attacks.

    Maybe at this point China doesn't care what the rest of the world thinks. Ok, but in that event Beijing should not be shock if its cooperative gestures are brush aside or ignored by the rest of the world.

    I'm surprised that i have seen no widespread news notice of this 'quid pro quo' deal between the chinese vaccine and the Uighurs living in turkey.
    Seems rather like blackmail to me.
