  • After China released a white paper on its fight against COVID-19, some analysts said it’s an implicit response to #criticism pointed at China for its handling of the outbreak in the early days. In the U.S., for example, when the number of cases there started to soar, the Trump administration started accusing China of not warning the U.S. early enough. But the facts tell another story. How was China communicating with the U.S. and other countries about the shared threat, even in the earlier days? #Coronavirus #Trump
