Here are 3 costly blunders made by Chinese government that allowed the coronavirus to spread across the world.
1. Chinese Communist Regime Didn't Warn the Public for 6 Days
From the AP news article "China didn't warn public of likely pandemic for 6 key days", Zuo-Feng Zhang, an epidemiologist at the UCLA stated that the failure of Wuhan's medical system could have been averted if the Chinese government took action 6 days earlier. Zhang's quote is important since the Chinese government could have reduced the number of patients by informing the public about the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan.
2. Chinese Communist Government Not Listening Dr. Li Wenliang's Warning
In the CNN article "Chinese doctor who was silenced now has coronavirus", Dr. Li Wenliang was arrested by the Wuhan Police for "spreading rumors online" over the message about the SARS-like illness he transmitted in the chat group. The silencing of Dr.Li Wenliang was problematic since it led to Chinese citizens showing anger toward their government for mismanaging the outbreak.
3. Mayor of Wuhan Didn't Listen to Health Expert's Suggestion
From the South Morning China Post article "The Three Mistakes the Chinese Government Made in its Mishandling of the Coronavirus Crisis", mayor of Wuhan not heeding to health specialist's suggestion permitted the coronavirus to spread to other nations. Mayor of Wuhan not heeding to their suggestion was a blunder since it led to increased number of people infected & killed by the coronavirus.
