German press compares claims of coronavirus to propaganda weapon


A very resonant article was published in the Western press, which is devoted to the problems of coronavirus. We are talking about the publication of Die Zeit columnist Steffen Richter. Perhaps for the first time in Western media the question is raised about the use of information about coronavirus as weapons propaganda.


Richter recalls that recently in the US statements of dignitaries (up to the president) have become more frequent, where China is accused of premature removal of quarantine and almost purposeful spread of the disease outside of Wuhan.

The author notes that such American statements were a response to the “Chinese propaganda statements” in which the US military was charged with the possible import of COVID-19 into Hubei Province. Beijing then did not provide any evidence, and in the United States, which themselves do not particularly like to operate with evidence of their words, this caused outrage.

From the material:

The United States tried to discredit the efforts of the Chinese government to combat the spread of the virus, in response to this, Beijing promised a response wherever China’s interests are violated.

Steffen Richter notes the following fact: US President Donald Trump has repeatedly used the terms “Chinese coronavirus” and “virus from China” in his speeches and tweets.

Richter:

With these words, Trump teases China, as it were, and tries to announce to the world that it is China that is guilty of a pandemic.

The comments of ordinary Germans on the basis of the article are noteworthy.

I sometimes wonder, and what “leaders” are now generally at the helm of the modern world? In my opinion, Trump is the worst who has ever been elected. I am even ready to praise our mistress Chancellor for her restraint on this issue, even if someone finds her speeches boring.

Trump met with criticism as an opponent of globalism. But if every local crisis becomes global due to the very globalization, we will soon find ourselves in a constant crisis mode. Not a good life.

China survived the crisis, and soon it was he, and not the Americans, who would most likely help us in many areas.

    Trump is the worst ever to be elected

    In comparison with whom? If with Bush Jr. or Obama, then Trump is better than them.

      What, explain to me, is the same hypocrite that he did to stop the war? Name at least one leader of mattress who really helped some state in trouble for free ??? Even during WWII, mattresses on people's grief raised their production, thereby avoiding great diplomacy. One million minuses to me.

      Actually, what is the difference between them, what is it better? For me, that Bush, that Obama, that Trump, all this is far from friends, but outright enemies. And not only Russia. While still in the second grade, I remember how instead of Carter, Reagan became the US president. And the guys, in all seriousness, with the appearance of experienced experts, discussed the question of who is better. It turned out that Reagan is better. The main argument was that Carter wanted to attack the Soviet Union, and Reagan only wanted to attack Poland. Such is political science, at the level of elementary grades of high school. So let's not be like a kindergarten in matters of which American president is better. The answer will be simple to the point - no.

      Yes, of course they won’t fight .. it feels like some kind of large-scale game is being played .. where the coronavirus is a distracting maneuver .. The fact is that the mortality rate of this virus is lower than that of swine flu .. and the resonance in the world is incredible .. I read the article yesterday where the Swedes do not give a damn about this byak .. they have 1000 sick people, 6 people died .. I also read the comments of people who have recovered .. they all say a common cold .. In general, it’s all strange if the bourgeois gathered to take advantage of this cover your debts by cover ..

          Yes, this moment is the trigger for panic .. But pneumonia develops if you don’t start injecting antibiotics on time .. that is, there are about two weeks to understand the seriousness of the disease .. The mechanism is the same as with swine flu .. In other words , there is nothing new and terrible in the coronavirus .. its only difference is a longer incubation period, about two weeks, if the usual flu manifests itself in 3-5 days ..

            When the panic has already started, like a tsunami, you have to be a VERY RESPECTED face that they would even hear it, not to mention whether they would obey! Few, few, in countries of such faces, it is painfully many top, "responsible", lie to their fellow citizens for a long time!
            The crisis of confidence, you can somehow replace forced obedience ... but it is very TEMPORARY!

              That's what it is about .. Merkel is somehow lying lazily, the Swedes have generally scored .. It seems that the United States has muddied the whole circus, but the final goal is not clear .. I read that it is possible that the economic consequences will be so serious that they’re new to this instead of the dollar, the currency will be issued and the debts will be nullified .. and it can also be a good indicator for the special services, you can see clearly what will happen in the case of a bacteriological attack on one of the countries .. It’s clear that this is all conspiracy theology, but that intentionally inflated this situation there is no doubt ..

        There are infections that are both more terrible and much more contagious. If you look at the global statistics on influenza mortality, then in absolute terms it is much higher, with a lower relative. So that the coronovirus will correctly be called informovirus.

    - On-line genetic analysis of SARS-CoV-2 viruses is critical to understanding the evolution of the new coronavirus and its spread. - said the acting Director of the Research Institute of Influenza named after A.A. Smorodintseva Ministry of Health of Russia Dmitry Lioznov. It is important to create highly selective test systems of two types - for the virus itself and for antibodies to it. It is important to create modern differential vaccines.

    The United States owes China a couple of trillion dollars, but how to write off? It’s scary to fight, to pit them with another country (Russia, India) does not work .. I found a very simple way in the depths of the CIA ..
    Now the accusations are quiet, then louder and louder .. And at the peak of everything they will make claims, just for the sum of these trillions and other assets .. Do you think this is fantastic? Alas, no .. Everything goes to this! And Russia has warned China more than once .. We did not believe us! Oh well
    By the way, it is possible that Russia will be blamed for this and will also be withdrawn money from the accounts for the “fight against coronovirus” and immediately send their opposition to posters and other unbridled persecution in the media !!!
    This is just the beginning .. bully

    first economic skirmishes with China, Huawei and so on. something tells me that the CIA could not have done without it and this virus is not of a completely natural origin, TK. coronaviruses have been known for a long time and however they did not cause pandemics.

    China has played a "friendship" with the United States.
    But on coronavirus, it will not end. The Anglo-Saxons will not stop until they get hit on the teeth. They will continue to hammer China. Until he crawls to them with the fifth point forward, praying for mercy.
