Denied Truth: Vietnam projects 0 coronavirus deaths as the U.S. projects 100,000 COVID deaths that obviously did not need to happen. That score card necessarily illuminates how well denying the truth or the age old big lie propaganda machine can work for good or corrupt politicians wanting to gain and stay in power.
Curious why the coronavirus pandemic did not kill any Vietnamese citizens to date? A cursory internet research reveals a legendary young Chinese Dr. Li Wenliang discovered the COVID-19 virus. He reported coronavirus pandemic realities to the world’s scientists as he identified them. The Chinese government responsibly feared he may start an undue panic yet enabled him to persist, assuring the World Health Organization could report his warnings in early January to save millions of lives and many, many trillions of dollars worldwide.
Vietnam’s communist president had the same timely intelligence warnings the U.S. president had, proving COVID deaths and economic chaos here are caused by politicians denying the truth for selfish reasons. Contrarily, Vietnam’s communist president respected the World Health Organization’s earned credibility and immediately responded to WHO’s early January coronavirus warning. He immediately closed Vietnam’s borders to isolate and quarantine its very few COVID cases.
Concluding: A heroic humanitarian, brilliant young Chinese doctor urgently researched the COVID-19 virus to courageously pass his results to his peers in real time: Insuring Vietnam/others could use WHO’s early warnings to protect their citizens at very minimal cost. “There is no cure for stupid” comes to my mind as too many U.S. politicians blame China for their own incompetence that will unnecessarily kill up to 100,000-plus Americans this year. It did not need to happen.
A comparable denied truth is “cheap gasoline costs trillions while killing or maiming millions.”
