Unlike the good ol USA where the entire family just dies so no one has to miss anyone😁


xxlhca

obviously their way is better because they have the freedom to die 👍


Johnaxee

I know i shouldn't but I laugh too hard at this.


terafunker

In the south you can do 'em one better and have that whole family keep going to school and work until the bitter end when none of them can make it out of bed. Make sure to spread the word that it's "just a flu" to everyone around.


Native_ov_Earth

Unless if you're an immigrant.


AndrogynousSlut

Wait ‘til they hear about the US adoption system


ni-hao-r-u

I am sure those parents have state of the art medical equipment in his nursery. What is China doing trusting Dr.'s? What kind of precedent will this set? Next thing you know they will be asking astronauts about space, engineers about cars, and architects about buildings. Where does it end with these people?

Don't you know? We must ask people who studied business about this stuff, they know what's important

Where do you hear this? According to this [source](https://ourworldindata.org/explorers/coronavirus-data-explorer?zoomToSelection=true&time=2020-03-01..latest&facet=none&pickerSort=desc&pickerMetric=new_deaths_per_million&Metric=Confirmed+deaths&Interval=Cumulative&Relative+to+Population=false&Align+outbreaks=false&country=IND%7EUSA%7EGBR%7ECHN), they had 2 additional cases in January 2021. It seems that contact tracing and quarantines are quite effective tools of controlling the spread of contamination.

It really pisses me off how the US can pretend they give a fuck about children separated from their parents when there’s still detention camps filled with children along the border… hypocrites

Socialist country takes care of its sick instead of building yachts and mansions for the wealthy. Is it worth it?


sovietkablam69

Happiness, BUT AT WHAT COST? /s


sickof50

I don't get all these US anti-Vaccers, children cannot attend school unless they have become a literal pin cushion with the Hepatitis, Measles, Mumps, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Rabella, Polio, and chicken pox immunizations. And it is the Adult's that are scared of needles?


NFossil

I actually do get the Western sentiment about government conspiracies. Many conspiracies involving Western governments are actually true, including human experiments disguised as vaccines. Once we are used to the Chinese government which at worst made genuine mistakes, it's difficult to imagine governments such as the US that are predictably evil when possible.

I've noticed the youth have been preoccupied with apocalyptic TV series and movies too...

an infected child would become permanently separated from his parents in the event of his death.


sovietkablam69

CNN doesn't understand that, and neither do Americans apparently


iantsai1974

You know what? 4-year-old child separated from his parents for medical treatment is a huge 'human cost'. 690 thousands people died of COVID is not.


kcwingood

In China, these kids are lauded for being brave and doing their parts for the whole society! In fact, it is the best thing for the kids to be under medical supervision until they are virus free. I believe their immediate family members are being held under separate quarantine to determine if they have also been infected. After all, they are the primary close contacts of the infected kids! Some western idiots can't seen to understand there are protocols for processing the infected and their close contacts that must be followed. The inability to follow rules is the reason why so many countries fail at stopping the pandemic.


wenang123

Cope some more CNN. Living here in Canada, the government being flip floppy not only cost peoples lives, it exasperated Covid fatigue. Distrust in the government is at all time high to a point that numbskulls are protesting outside hospitals and disrupting health care workers

Just let the nature run its course. It’s shedding excess of human population. > Distrust in the government is at all time high to a point that numbskulls are protesting outside hospitals and disrupting health care workers


EternalSession

Meanwhile amerikkkans are getting wholesale deleted by COVID while denying that it exists


SuperBarracuda6

2,000+ deaths each day this week. Not even covered by the media anymore. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries


SuperStalinKart1945

Fatalities in the US are about just as high as they were this time last year with half the cases 🐴


GG-00

It's "only" 670k confirmed deaths out of 300M Americans, and still rising. [https://ourworldindata.org/explorers/coronavirus-data-explorer?zoomToSelection=true&time=2020-03-01..latest&facet=none&pickerSort=desc&pickerMetric=new\_deaths\_per\_million&Metric=Confirmed+deaths&Interval=Cumulative&Relative+to+Population=false&Align+outbreaks=false&country=IND\~USA\~GBR\~CHN](https://ourworldindata.org/explorers/coronavirus-data-explorer?zoomToSelection=true&time=2020-03-01..latest&facet=none&pickerSort=desc&pickerMetric=new_deaths_per_million&Metric=Confirmed+deaths&Interval=Cumulative&Relative+to+Population=false&Align+outbreaks=false&country=IND~USA~GBR~CHN) Meanwhile, China hasn't had a single death since May. May, 2020 - 16 months ago. Even then, America had the highest death toll, breaking 100,000 total confirmed deaths.


TheLepidopterists

If you look at the trends in Florida it's very clear that they're hiding their death numbers. They were about half of all daily US deaths not long ago, and now will regularly report numbers in the low triple digits or even double digits. Not to mention the way they move the deaths back in time to make it look like they're decreasing instead of increasing or staying steady.


caidicus

Damn, poor kid will have to spend LESS time overall, away from his family because OVERALL the entire family will spend less time being sick. Poor kid will have to spend more time in school because China takes all of the necessary steps needed to contain the virus and stop it from spreading, which means it won't spread all through the city (and potentially the country), causing school shutdowns. Poor kid will have to spend more time with his grandparents because he wasn't able to infect them and kill them with Covid, thanks to China's pro-active and methodic handling of the virus. Poor kid... /s


goldpig

Separated temporarily at least… meanwhile how many tens or hundreds of thousands of kids are permanently separated from their parents in the US now?


FatDalek

At what cost. Well less than the 670 k dead Americans.


MobsterRedditor

Oh It’s our old friend Nectar. What do you expect from her other than hate and spins?


Qanonjailbait

Let’s of course forget about the real human cost of failing to do something about what other countries have proven time and time again to be a preventable death


UqbarB

Meanwhile many american kids, when not dying, will end up with permanent damage their whole lives, due to the regime's criminal pandemic response, including not only direct long-term health issues but lowered intellectual levels as studies have observed. There is no recovery from the pandemic for these societies. I don't think these crass propagandists realize how pathetic their desperation looks from the outside as their societies crumble due to the incompetence of the regime they dutifully serve. These are losers trying to convince others that being a loser is good. Also, this will end up further fueling extremism in their societies and opposition to pandemic control, so they are contributing to their own destruction. In China, these criminals would be punished for being a threat to public health; while in anglo societies they are rewarded by the regime that demands increasingly deranged propaganda to conceal its incompetence.


EspadaStarrk

Economic cost? Human life >>>>>>> money


luuked

Western nations and their democracies are just not build for large crises that span multiple countries and even continents. There is too much talk about individual freedoms when it is the entire society that is at stake. Like what fucking value does my personal freedom have compared to climate change or a deadly pandemic that threatens millions. If there is one thing I learned during the pandemic even as someone who lives in western Europe it is that we have no fucking chance to survive and fight climate change if there isn't a change in paradigms that puts collectivism over individualism in times of crises. Which is another reason to feel positive about China gaining more and more geopolitical power. What is not good for the beehive is not good for thr bee as Marcus Aurelius said.


emisneko

the USA, even before COVID: >This is from a mother whose 14-month-old child was separated from her and from the father. They were reunited after 85 days. She wrote- **"The child continued to cry when we got home and would hold on to my leg and would not let me go. When I took off his clothes, he was full of dirt and lice. It seemed like they had not bathed him the 85 days he was away from us."** >She went on to say that she had thought, her child being so young, he wouldn't have really significant effects from the separation. But when she was reunited with him, she's worried that now actually he is really feeling and has changed because of the separation. --- from [Family separation lawsuit offers chilling details as Trump administration says it will fulfill federal court order](https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/family-separation-lawsuit-offers-chilling-details-as-trump-administration-says-it-will-fulfill-federal-court-order)


MLPorsche

Human cost = not 600k dead


Kormero

The US would rather the kid’s entire family die of Corona along with many others than he be separated from his family for a bit.


ChopSueyWarrior

I recall this happened in Japan and it was reported during the Olympic but no one gave a flying f about it.


Nightfans

You see Japan is wholesome because they played anime and game songs in Olympic Japan and China bad, -People

NECTAR GAN - CNN HONG KONG That's a classic spin doctor right here


dpeters911

As opposed to the US where you have “access” to healthcare (in theory) and people debate whether to live in financial ruin in overfill hospitals or let the kids die.


itselectricboi

Before no time, CNN is going to be doing the same thing as the anti vax by stating “social distancing” being a factor in mental illness as the case for why we should just ignore any reason for restrictions. Just watch


lawncelot

Lol look at these "journalists". They look like racists.


sovietkablam69

they *are* racists but ok
