Nesting at home is a simple sacrifice that's hard to screw up

The pandemic is not a violent war, but it is an emotional and mental battle no matter whether you are Chinese, American or Italian or any other nationality. Support one another heart to heart, mind to mind and spirit to spirit, together we will quell this crisis and meet together under the bright sunshine of a late summer day.

West's sense of superiority caused failure to act promptly

The West is trying to deflect blame, exacerbated by a mind-set which interprets disease outbreaks not as an inevitable aspect of the human condition, but something belonging to exotic, oriental and poorer nations.

Free market weakens US supply chain of much-needed medical supplies

Indeed, when we doff the tainted glasses of ideology, we can see that marshaling a country's economic and industrial resources to achieve a common goal is as essential as the temporary shelter-in-place policy that many of us are now abiding by. In an abnormal era, this is what we call the new normal.

West should stop criticizing China and learn from its achievements

China has shared its experience, but many Western countries are just not willing to follow. When the pandemic is over, these countries will find that it was not China that had led to the severe conditions in the US and Europe, but their own wrong judgments and choices.

China's virus fight squares with shared future concept

China's fight against the novel coronavirus pneumonia, officially known as COVID-19, has continued to make headway. Traffic controls within Hubei have been loosened, and economic production and social activities have resumed. Education departments in some provinces are mapping out the beginning of the first semester in 2020 amid the improving epidemic situation. Yet people are still vigilant about another wave of infections in the country.

'Lack of transparency' claims ungrounded

I have no idea what scientific basis there is for scientists' claims that China's outbreak could be “downplayed by a factor of 15 to 40 times.”

US Republicans devise elaborate cover-up by blaming China

The catastrophic outbreak of COVID-19 racing across the US seems unstoppable with at least 163,000 infection case and more than 3,000 deaths as of Monday evening. Such severe domestic calamity situation has yet to turn some US politicians' attention to implementing better measures to contain the spread of the coronavirus. These politicians have failed to put forward helpful proposals to tackle the virus, but have spared no efforts to come up nonsensical resolutions to blame China for their self-inflicted woes.

Neighborhood committees are in the vanguard of virus control

Returning to my residential community after some grocery shopping, I adjust my mask and roll up a sleeve to expose a bare wrist. “Temperature check, resident's pass please,” the man manning the gate requests.

China's anti-virus aid out of goodwill, responsibility, not atonement

An absurd theory is emerging in international public opinion. It maliciously suggests that China is “culpable” for the global coronavirus pandemic, and that what the country is doing – such as providing foreign assistance – is an atonement for its “sins.” Such rhetoric is completely groundless and is nonsense.

COVID-19 blunders signal end of 'American Century'

For most people it's unfathomable that the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic is the first global event that hasn't been led by the US since 1941. In 1941, the US was a leader in the worldwide antifascist war. During this current global fight against an invisible enemy, the US is hardly able to protect itself. The US should have been much better prepared for the outbreak considering the coronavirus came to its shores after it had rampaged through China, Japan, South Korea, Iran, Italy, France, Germany and Britain.

'Commitment, competence, and readiness' turned the tide in China's virus fight

The coronavirus is posing an increasingly tough challenge to the entire world. What can China's successful experience offer? What role does it play in the global anti-virus fight? What's behind some Western politicians' slandering of China's efforts? Dr. Robert Lawrence Kuhn, chairman of The Kuhn Foundation and recipient of the China Reform Friendship Medal (2018), shared his insights on these issues and more with Global Times (GT) reporter Yan Yunming.

Ill-intentions behind criticism of donations that links current shortages in Australia

The global pandemic is not local or regional. It transcends borders and threatens the entire human race. A global existential crisis calls for global efforts. At this most challenging time, it undermines the global joint virus fight if one continues stirring up political biases and prejudices.
