China’s Global TimesA government newspaper reported this week that President Joe Biden was accused by a leftist newspaper of declaring the Chinese coronavirus Pandemic “over”As a way to boost Democrat prospects for the upcoming midterm election, I predicted that this would “lead to a spike in cases and deaths”All across America
Biden – who had previously spent his presidency defending sanitary mask mandates and attempting to impose laws requiring the ingestion of vaccination products – appeared to make a dramatic reversal during a CBS News interview on Sunday in which he declared that the world had moved on because the pandemic is “over.”
“The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with [Chinese coronavirus],” Biden told CBS News’ Scott Pelley. “We’re still doing a lot of work on it. It’s — but the pandemic is over. If you notice, no one’s wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. And so I think it’s changing. And I think this is a perfect example of it.”
Biden’s comments followed similar, and rare, optimism from World Health Organization (W.H.O.) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus (Director-General), who made the comments last week, but didn’t declare an end to pandemic but still promised that the world would be safe. “the end is in sight.”
“Last week, the number of weekly reported deaths from [Chinese coronavirus] was the lowest since March 2020. We have never been in a better position to end the pandemic. We are not there yet but the end is in sight,” Tedros said at a regular press briefing. It is possible to see the finish. While we’re in a good place, now is the time to slow down. Now is the time to run harder and make sure we cross the line and reap the rewards of all our hard work.”

The Global TimesAn official mouthpiece of the Chinese government, Xiamen, strongly disagreed on Monday with Biden, calling his remarks “unacceptable”. “extremely irresponsible” and accusing him of dishonesty onThe pandemic in an attempt to prevent a major defeat for the Democrats in November’s elections.
“Chinese observers believe that the [Chinese coronavirus] issue in the US has become a political tool for a partisan battle instead of a public health issue concerning people’s lives,” the Global Times claimed, “which highlighted that the Biden administration’s decision-making is extremely irresponsible.”
Approved by the communist regime “experts” cited predicted mounting deaths attributable to Biden’s interview and claimed that Biden’s failure to secure America’s borders would also exacerbate the problem.
“Experts said that Biden’s extremely irresponsible remarks may lead to a spike in cases and deaths in the US in the fall and winter when [Chinese coronavirus] intertwines with the flu,”The state propaganda outlet was relayed. “In addition, the lack of prevention and control measures coupled with loosening border control in the US puts the world at risk of a resurgence of [Chinese coronavirus].”
A specialist in this field is a “research fellow” identified as Lü Xiang, drew a direct line from Biden declaringThe pandemic over toThe poor results expected for Democrats in the upcoming elections.
“Lü Xiang, a research fellow at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times on Tuesday that as a weak president, Biden’s declaration had apparent political motives,” the Global Times cited, “as he attempted to show the government’s achievement and boost morale of the Democratic Party before the midterm elections.”

“Instead of making decisions based on scientific assessment from health departments, Biden bluntly announced the end of the pandemic which was absolutely unscientific and extremely irresponsible, Lü said,” the Times noted, describing Biden’s coronavirus policy with its favorite slur for American politics, “chaotic.”
Chinese state media’s attacks on Biden follow months of brutal coronavirus lockdowns in the communist country that have alarmed even the once-supportive W.H.O. Tedros is the W.H.O. chief Tedros, the W.H.O. chief, advised against locking down in May. He stated that rolling lockdowns across entire cities would be unacceptable. “not sustainable” as a long-term strategy and unnecessary given the sharp decline in the virus’s death rate and the existence of vaccine products.
“We know the virus better and we have better tools, including vaccines, so that’s why the handling of the virus should actually be different from what we used to do at the start of the pandemic,” Tedros said at the time, leading to Chinese officials censoring photos of Tedros online.
China is now considering rethinking its policy of locking down entire cities. This has been in response to global disapproval, as well as domestic unrest and attacks on the police. China now blocks individual neighbourhoods, locking them down sometimes all of a city’s neighborhoods but not declaring an official city lockdown. Since September began, 70 Chinese cities have been in partial or total lockdown. Most notable were Chengdu and Ghulja.
Residents of Ghulja in East Turkistan’s Uyghur Region have started sharing videos on social media demanding that the government provide food and allow them to leave. Some people have posted videos showing their relatives’ bodies, which they claim shows the effects of hunger or lack of critical medical care. China has been accused of creating a genocide in the Uyghur region against other Turkic ethnic peoples. Many activists have shared videos showing the corpses of their loved ones who died from starvation or lack of access to critical medicine.
