China Lied, Hoarded PPE, and Blamed America for Coronavirus.

As American researchers are working hard to develop a vaccine and a cure for the Chinese coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China, Chinese Communist Party hackers are targeting American research for cyberattacks, according to the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Rogue actors have increased cybertheft and attacks amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“China’s long history of bad behavior in cyberspace is well documented, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone they are going after the critical organizations involved in the nation’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic,” Christopher Krebs, the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, told The New York Times. He added that the agency would “defend our interests aggressively.” Read more…

Australia to China: Don’t Push Us on COVID-19, Mate

Okay, okay, fine. If you want to get all nitpicky, COVID-19 isn’t the Chinese virus. It’s merely the latest Chinese virus. Any number of deadly pandemics have emanated from China for thousands of years, and it will keep on happening as long as the Chinese allow it to happen. But you’re not supposed to say that, because China is full of Chinese people and therefore criticizing them is racist. You’re supposed to ignore facts. You mustn’t tell the truth about why you’re out of a job and worried about getting sick and dying. If you do, your moral, ethical, and intellectual betters will call you names, which they will also do for any other reason.

But not everyone is cowed by China. Not our friends down under, certainly. Read more…

“As emeritus of the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, and for many years head of the institute for medical microbiology and hygiene there, I feel obliged to critically question the far-reaching restrictions on public life that we are currently undertaking to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus,” he begins the letter (which is written in German and unofficially translated below). “It is expressly not my concern to downplay the dangers of the viral disease or to spread a political message.

White House Projects 100,000 to 240,000 U.S. Deaths From Virus

President Trump on Tuesday said Americans should brace for a “hell of a bad two weeks” coming, and projected there could be up to 240,000 deaths in the U.S. from the coronavirus pandemic, regardless of the measures taken to date to mitigate the spread.

At a daily White House briefing, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nations’ top infectious disease expert, offered some optimism. “This is a number that we need to anticipate, but we don’t necessarily have to accept it as being inevitable,” said Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of the White House coronavirus task force.

In a somber press conference, Trump said the coming weeks will be a “a matter of life and death” for Americans, urging them to heed the administration’s guidelines to practice social distancing and stay home. Read more…
