In Brazil the virus is spreading very fast every day, hospitals only diagnose people when they're already in late stage and the partnership with China (its biggest buyer) is very fragile thanks to some parliamentary buffoon wanting to start shit blaming China for the outbreak (when in fact it came to Brazil through Italy) and comparing it to the Chernobyl disaster.

As if that wasn't enough, a big number of people are buying into this "China want to start a biological warfare" bullshit.

State Governors are trying to lockdown their states and The President ain't happy with that because he thinks they are overreacting and because he's a fucking jackass.

Considering that its public health system is inefficient (to the point of letting people die in queues), shit's about to hit the fan hard.

Talk about a country who's gonna have a field day.

There's a real danger to underreacting to this, but the media is reporting on it in an irresponsible and misleading way. Recoveries are an after thought, they always throughout the horror numbers, and then there improvement they go silent. They never mention number of cases relative to population or increases in testing capacity. And. mentions of it are in totally unrelated articles. Its fear porn.

And it holds true for both, the MSM and the conspiracy theorists out there. And the latter often mixes it with literally any other conspiracy.

I think what I personally don't like, working in the media, is the deception that's going on in a drive for clicks.
It's to the point where Channel 9 Australia, is just outright making up headlines, paying "experts" massive fees for fearporn opinions (they could have chosen other experts with normal opinions, but they didn't) and then you have Sky News Aust are launching a new channel devoted solely to 24 hr Coronavirus news.

Your assertion that Italy and France don't have modern or adequate healthcare systems is laughable. They're developed countries. The two main problems being faced in the West are: the lack of precedent, as in there really isn't a knowledge base to pull from, unlike East Asia and SARS, and the inherent lack of government control in free societies. The US cannot simply start welding people inside apartment blocks or administering the final vaccine to those infected. There's a push to quarantine afflicted cities but there is a debate on whether or not that's even constitutional. In the West you simply cannot start locking shit down. Italy waited as long as it could before it did this and in the US it's doubtful it could be legally done at all.

Italy is a shithole and so is France. Italy has poor medical care in the North, it's been robbed blind by the EU and never made itself a decent economy to support all the freeloaders it has.
France has black people living in the streets. Neither are what I'd call first world countries anymore.

Yeah, one of my forums that was never political is white-knighting the media and blaming the President for the virus, not blaming the media for pushing a run on paper products. Oddest thing is the only member who is the voice of reason is the one living in/near the northern California region.

The Chinese are going to be able spin this whole thing greatly to their advantage. All they have to do is send a few thousand ventilators and a couple hundred thousand masks to every badly affected Western country and they will be able to instantly buy enough goodwill to make people forget about their initially bungled response and lack of transparency that sowed the seed of this pandemic.

They are experts at the application and exercise of soft power, and a kind of crisis like this is the ideal opportunity for them to apply their talents in that respect.

In fact it was a number of factors that made this happen, (1) a large number of Chinese immigrants, (2) locking elderly people in old buildings without ventilation (3) a government that follows orders from psychopaths ...

In Brazil the virus is spreading very fast every day ... (to the point of letting people die in queues), shit's about to hit the fan hard.
Our hospitals are as empty as the U.S., and our mainstream media is the same as the Us as well... search on your own and stop eating in the latrine. YT search by "hospitais vazios"
