Covid-19 and US-China Tussle
A lose-lose proposition that will do damage worldwide
Covid-19 is becoming a key element in US-China relations. The pandemic has aggravated the already sinking US-China relationship attributed to the two countries’ trade, technology and geopolitical wars. The United States is increasingly blaming China for the spread of the coronavirus, the damage it has done to the economy and the colossal number of deaths. Trump in some of his almost daily briefings on Covid-19 vowed to investigate the Wuhan Institute of Virology, from which US intelligence “sources” speculated the virus was released intentionally or accidentally. China, for its part, accuses the US (and the West in general) of squandering a two-month opportunity to act on its January 3 release of information that Covid-19 would spread rapidly. The blame game appeared to be heating up, with both sides demanding investigations on whether the charges or conspiracy theories were true. However, it must be considered that blaming each other for causing Covid-19 will only worsen the economic, geopolitical and social damages that the pandemic has already caused.
