    1/5 of the people here is different, and you are saying that is relatively the same?

    Also, 3/5 of the people look different because they changed their profile pic. Are you still saying that people look relatively the same when most of the people don't look the same?

    I'm thinking about it.  Mostly because we have so little reliable data about what takes place within the Chinese Govt. that the case should be impossible to prove.  However,  inadequate is a low and fuzzy standard to have to prove.  Any big government response is going to prove inadequate to the needs of some as care and aid is prioritized.  I would certainly argue that China's response was more effective and transparent than the US response although that's a pretty low bar.

    I would disagree with your statement that China's response was more transparent than the US, although I would says both of their responses should be conceived as failures.

    I agree, but again, both responses were terrible.

    I would argue that disinformation is less transparent than cover up.  The instrument of international pandemic transparency is the WHO.  Let's note that President Xi addressed the World Health Organization (and reps from every nation except the US) regarding the virus yesterday and welcomed a major investigation into China's response.  The US has essentially dropped out of the WHO and so has no access to the agreed upon instrument (and so need not submit to any international investigation of US response).  Putin may be jailing whistleblowing doctors but at least he's not on television actively selling drugs that the FDA advises offer no benefit and substantially increase the likelihood of death.

    Yeah now I agree with you. The doctors are probably giving Trump a placebo anyway. China caused a lot of corruption in the WHO, but at least their president is playing his cards carefully.
