In Hong Kong: the coronavirus for authoritarian Beijing will be the same as the Chernobyl accident for the USSR


Opposition representatives in Hong Kong voiced their views on the situation with coronavirus in China. Notes began to appear on the network that the information wave around the coronavirus, which in the PRC had infected about 75 thousand people for more than a month, also has a “political connotation”.


In particular, it was stated that the unprecedented security measures undertaken by the Chinese government, the ban on mass events, the use of quarantine zones, where law enforcement officers work, actually reduced to zero Hong Kong protests.

Recall that Hong Kong has become a center of protest, where opposition forces, which Beijing suspected of being fueled by foreign funds, staged large-scale actions against the central authorities of China. One of the demands put forward by opposition activists was: Beijing must comply with international law and respect the rights and freedoms of citizens who cannot agree with the policies of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party).

Now in Hong Kong, they say that "the authorities took advantage of the coronavirus epidemic to quench protests."

However, other points of view are also expressed in Hong Kong. Thus, Wang Xiangwei, an analyst at South China Morning Post, writes that the coronavirus COVID-19 was "an alarming call for authoritarian Beijing." The author notes the following: materials appeared in the press that the coronavirus for communist China would be the same as the accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant (Chernobyl NPP) became for the Soviet Union, when huge resources were withdrawn from the country's economy to eliminate the consequences of the disaster. Then it hit both the Soviet economy and the political system as a whole, sowing distrust among the people.

Wang Xianwei believes that this kind of judgment is somewhat exaggerated, but nevertheless notes that the coronavirus can really strike at the ruling elites of China.

From the material:

Over the past three weeks, the Chinese leadership’s efforts to mobilize national resources to fight the disease, including localization, which has covered most of the country and several hundred million people, have begun to produce tangible results. But they also involve enormous costs for the economy, as well as the authority and legitimacy of the ruling Communist Party at home and abroad.

The author notes that in China, lessons should be learned from what is associated with the coronavirus epidemic.

            These are homegrown accomplices of the Anglo-Saxons. Liberals are on their hind legs alone! As you know, Hong Kong has always been a springboard for the expansion of the Anglo-Saxons in Asia.

              Hong Kong is the world's largest queen's offshore hole. With the expansion of the British is not very (everything is already occupied by the United States), but they save the leading sector of the British economy and they really do not like the prospect of the transfer of Hong Kong banks under the jurisdiction of China.

        They yell slowly, almost in a whisper. China already didn’t really stand on ceremony with troublemakers, however, they don’t put it on the wall, they have another tradition - the stadium. Now, during an epidemic, any manifestation of disobedience can be equated with a threat to national security, with the ensuing consequences.
        Anyone who conceals the symptoms of a coronavirus or their relationship with people from Wuhan will be severely punished. A Beijing court explained why hiding a trip to the city where the epidemic started could lead to jail. Such behavior during an epidemic that threatens the world will be regarded by the Chinese authorities as a deliberate threat to public safety, which could result in punishment. from three years in prison to deathhttps://www.tvc.ru/news/show/id/178339/?utm_p=pulse_t

        Let’s better in Hong Kong calculate the losses for their economy, after the mess that they made there, fighting for “their rights”. China will survive, but small Hong Kong? Or they think that "big brother" will help. But of course, from the local liberda (and not only from the local one), you will not hear such data. Statements of the "Hong Kong Opposition" remind me of the logic of Ukrainian revolutionaries about the joy when a cow died from a neighbor. Or "Let the hut burn down at the neighbor, I’ll even warm my ass." However, why be surprised, the manuals on all of them are the same.

      Hong Kongers live by the highest world standards - fourth in the HDI - (Canada at 13, China at 85), in 1st place in life expectancy, (Canada at 14th, China at 61st), etc. d. It is clear that from their positions, criticism of China is quite logical - they became part of a less developed country in terms of living standards.

        There is not only Hong Kong. The entire industrial south of China considers itself to be pure, "right" Chinese, despising the inhabitants of the northern part of the country, who since ancient times have "come" to China (the Mongols, as well as various peoples from Siberia and Central Asia). Many large cities in the southern region are governed by mayors who form the top of the Chinese Komsomol. Party members are officially at the head of the Komsomol, but they only formally determine the organization’s policy, in fact, without serious influence on it. They are just observers. The Komsomol is, by law, an organization independent of the Communist Party, unaccountable. It is enough to say that the mayor of Wuhan, one of its leaders, independently organized a blockade of the huge city, without having an order from above. Comrade X took as long as 10 days to digest such insolence and forced to agree with the decision. The mayors of neighboring cities, also "Komsomol", imposed a blockade in their cities also without a party order. This despite the fact that with more serious epidemics, the cities did not block. Intention? How to know. The shutdown of production has already led to enormous losses. The entire south, led by Komsomol leaders, has frenzied sympathy for the United States and is very cool towards Comrade Xi, a native of the north. The South is a kind of Chinese front. Not everything is smooth and unanimous there, as it seems to us from the outside. So, the comparison of the outbreak of coronavirus with the subsequent blockade of the "Komsomol" territories by the "Komsomol" themselves may be rightly compared in their consequences to the Chernobyl disaster. Both in the economy and in domestic politics.

      China was unlucky in this respect - it was the first to fall under the epidemic. But illnesses with the same success mow down the Communists, and conservatives, and liberal democrats of any country. And it may very well be that as a result, serious measures taken by the Chinese authorities will show that they have justified themselves. As far as I remember, according to the forecast, the coronovirus may quiet down a bit, but give an outbreak in the fall. And who will fall under it is still incomprehensible. hi

        Not quite right.
        The strange thing is that the virus kills adults and the elderly, but does not touch the children.
        Why?
        In children, immunity is weaker than an adult.
        And children are less responsible for hygiene.
        And the result is the opposite of what should be.
        Why is that?
        What kind of selectivity?
        Virus is a method of nature to get rid of the weak.
        And here is the opposite.
        Who can benefit from this?
        Well, not nature, after all.

          Yes, this virus has some strange feature - it affects children less. At least for the children calmer. But today we do not know reliable statistics on coronavirus deaths - how many people are of what age. And it’s more correct to take care of it all - regardless of the years lived. hi

            there are diseases, i.e. viruses and bacteria that change their behavior.
            in the beginning, the symptoms may not be dangerous and this helps to infect a large count. people because they don’t take protective measures.
            at some point, an incomprehensible mechanism is triggered and the symptoms become deadly ops.
            such behavior looks strange, as if the disease has a distribution plan but it is a fact.
            so unfortunately it’s too early to judge the dangers of the crust, we will see in the near future.

          Today, the weak is not the one who has few muscles. And not one who has less life experience. We are located exactly on the border of the change of eras. In the new, informational era, neither muscles nor experience from the previous era are needed. Nature perfectly understands this and perfectly copes with unnecessary ballast.

            I allow myself to disagree with your controversial conclusions.
            I won’t explain for a long time.
            I recommend you to refresh the memory of the work of Efremov "Razor Blade".
            The master very correctly and strongly substantiated the need for the presence of both muscles and everything else in the post technological era, i.e. in a period when you do not have to run after mammoths, escape from wild cats, chill in the cold, bask around the fire.
            It turns out that what seems beautiful to us is expediency by nature.
            So it is with muscles. The muscles in a man are fine, and in a woman is nonsense.
            Etc.
            I think that you are wrong.

            It gives me pleasure to show my three-year-old grandson how to climb a tree and run with the ball for 45 minutes.

              Your pleasures from football and other physical exercises are just a relic of a past era, to which we all relate to the old. At the time of Efremov there were not even prerequisites for the environment in which we begin to live. I remember he justified female beauty by the need to bear a child. For that period, it was a logical conclusion. But now even the woman herself is not particularly needed for the reproduction of our population. Even without binoculars, the future is quite visible, in which there is simply no place for physical work. Why strain if the robot does the same job hundreds of times better and faster?
              You do not need to be a very perspicacious futurologist to see the enormous prospects of artificial intelligence. Not just as an amplifier of human abilities, but as a SUBJECT, setting his own tasks and looking for ways to solve them. The only opportunity for us to withstand competition with him and remain as he is is to integrate into the information environment, use advanced achievements to modernize our own body.

            A virus that kills everyone and quickly disappears immediately with the killed population. He also needs to give offspring in order to live. The ratio of mortality to spread rate should be balanced.
            The man himself changed the speed, and very quickly by the standards of biology - we fly, we live in a dense heap in cities, we have medicine.
            And the virus, as it was, remains - a stupid result of stupid slow natural selection. Equilibrium will be established again, one way or another.

              I was surprised to learn that coronaviruses are created and patented. Or patent unraveled natural. For example, the Asian strain of bird flu (the 2008–2010 outbreak) was patented by Baxter International, and the vaccine against it was patented by Roche Pharmaceutical Company, Switzerland. Everything looks like it is being played out on notes. One company creates a virus, another parallel to a vaccine, and when everything is ready, they start an epidemic. And the point here is not only the desire to get rid of the loot on drug sales. If there wasn’t a plan to reduce the population of certain territories, and why it seems to me that some people have such a plan who would allow them to act so frankly.

      That's right. For China, spending $ 10-20-100-200 billion on the fight against the epidemic is not a problem at all. How much will be needed - they will spend so much. Damage to their economies is not critical. Catch up. Moreover, reports flickered that the Chinese are actively buying up amid falling shares in their enterprises.
      I can not disagree with the opposition in Hong Kong that the coronavirus for China is similar to Chernobyl for the USSR, but only in the sense that the fight against the threat rallied the people. In addition, the Chinese have gained vast experience in combating epidemics and have seriously modernized their emergency services and related infrastructure. They now even cope with zombie apocalypse. I have no doubt. So that "Hello Hong Kong!"

    It is no secret to anyone that large Western firms, including the USA, located their production in China because of the cheapness of productive forces. The play played by China with coronovirus will allow them to drive out all Western firms, bankrupt them and buy them cheaply - a restructuring of the type we have in the 90s, only for a turn. I am only happy for the Chinese leadership that was able to do this.

    But the Japanese in front of the whole World did not conduct a human experiment on the speed of spread of the virus in a confined space (cruise ship) and a successful attempt to mutate it to other races ... Detachment 731 exists ...

    And this yells a 90% supply from mainland China. Oh well. First, toilet paper will end in Hong Kong, and then rice with meat ... China will not let anyone interfere in their affairs with Hong Kong. Even if all nuclear power plants explode. What got to the Chinese, it was gone for the rest.

    I’m wondering what and when the answer will come from the Chinese. It is already known that the RNA of the virus is abnormally large and consists of three viruses at once. The carriers of which are VERY different types of living things. Man (the virus is close to flu), bats and snakes. The probability that these viruses have met and combined in vivo is vanishingly small. And there are very few countries that can organize relevant research (genetic engineering). And with whom the Chinese had serious graters recently, it is well known.
