Is a totalitarian dictatorship covering stuff up? Probably.
If there’s any lesson to take away from the Chinese Virus, it’s that dictatorships can’t be trusted to tell the truth about internal conditions. And one of the major bugs of globalization was the insistence that we had to integrate totalitarian regimes into the network with the Chinese Virus as the end result. And of course it goes beyond China. The so-called “international community” to which the expert class, the media, and the weight of globalist opinion pays tribute to is little better than a collection of dictatorships. With results like these.
Doctors in Russia say the government is covering up coronavirus cases in the country and forcing medical staff to treat infectious patients without protective equipment.
Anastasia Vasilyeva, the head of Russia’s Alliance of Doctors trade union, voiced the accusation in a video published on Thursday.
She called on Russian doctors to go public with information about the “true” state of the coronavirus outbreak in the country.
“While the whole world is facing an outbreak of a new coronavirus, Russia is facing an outbreak of a community-acquired pneumonia,” Vasilyeva said. “And as usual, we’re facing the lie of the authorities.”
She said Russian authorities were referring to coronavirus cases as ordinary pneumonia, implying that they’re distinct from the coronavirus pandemic.
That’s actually a thorny question. Different countries classify deaths in which the Chinese Virus is a factor, differently.
But as to what’s actually going on in Russia, much as in China or Iran, or any other member of the international tyrannical community, who knows? We can’t trust the authorities. And that means that there’s no reason to expose ourselves to any risk based on their claims.
If you believe Russia’s numbers, then Poland has a growing Chinese Virus problem (not to mention so many other countries), but they don’t. Meanwhile Russia is the one with a sizable Chinese population.
Forget trust, but verify. Here’s a motto for a post-global world. Don’t trust.
