They all look like a bunch of nervous nellies to me..every country..China, others.. :x
It doesn't feel like punishment but if anything I think China's punishing us.. well the world..and themselves in the end. Clearly what started this crappalooza was the first 2 articles from FT and NYT that reported the 250m memo leaked by china top officials and guangdong qingdao health commissions w their 500,000+/day estimates (obtained by running thru models apparently).. all the countries are pointing to WHO calling on China for more data urgently, under report variant risk the usual as the reason for putting up restrictions.
WHO nvr raised any such urgent concerns abt these across public headlines before those 2 articles appeared. Only after..
I think ppl incl me who aren't as worried abt covid or imo taken over by the fear and fragility of life are underestimating the effects on ppl who are.. why would the officials even talk abt these numbers to press and only after relaxation not before.. obv the individuals don't think its a good move and trying to alter the flow slightly by slipping some info that hints at.. don't be too relaxed and share cooties
