Medical staff danced at a makeshift hospital in Wuhan, China on Feb 12. Similar scenes were also seen at a Stockton hospital in the UK last Friday. Let optimism spread across hospitals all over the world. Humanity will eventually defeat COVID-19. pic.twitter.com/k98iEEouAw— Hu Xijin ??? (@HuXijin_GT) April 13, 2020
Washington constantly attacks CPC. But the system established by CPC has saved numerous lives this time while tens of thousands people are predicted to die under US democratic system. It shows that the US needs to learn from each other with China, instead of only smearing Beijing— Hu Xijin ??? (@HuXijin_GT) April 9, 2020
China has not seen a wave of unemployment like that of the US so far. Companies are asked not to lay off employees during pandemic. This is socialism. China is speeding up production resumption and minimizing bankruptcies. The CPC can lead the country through this difficult time.— Hu Xijin ??? (@HuXijin_GT) April 17, 2020
President Trump couldn’t understand why China’s death toll is much lower than US’s. It’s because Chinese govt has adopted scientific&effective control measures.Loose political system of the US allows more than 4000 people die of pandemic every day. Americans are so good tempered.— Hu Xijin ??? (@HuXijin_GT) April 19, 2020
The US does not have a bottom line for COVID-19 deaths. Bringing pandemic under control is not a mandatory task for the President and governors. They care more about polishing their image, shifting blame to others. American-style democracy at this time is disappointing.— Hu Xijin ??? (@HuXijin_GT) April 19, 2020
Countries or regions lifting lockdown before the condition allows it will pay the price of epidemic rebounding. President Trump urges early lifting of stay-at-home order, it will become new evidence of his inept governance in 2 or 3 months. Virus likes leaders like him the most.— Hu Xijin ???

I was curious about China’s perspective.
I’ve heard so many takes on the pandemic from FOX News and the Dissident Right. What do the Chinese think of us? Basically, they think our government is run by a bunch of incompetent liberals. They are following the public health vs. the economy debate in the United States.
Note: DP84 has argued here that 100 million dead Americans is preferable to a national lockdown. The range of takes in the Dissident Right has varied from it is “just the flu” to the virus is less serious than lightning strikes to actually it is a blessing that old people are dying.
