Once Upon A Virus: video illustrates Chinese and American responses to COVID-19

A new video from Xinhua News Agency uses LEGO characters to illustrate the difference in the Chinese and American responses to the emergence of COVID-19. Fortunately for the Americans, the brutally accurate video did not include the suggestion from the U.S. President to inject disinfectant as a form of treatment against the virus.

Video transcript:

December

China: Strange pneumonia cases reported

W.H.O.: Roger that!!

January

China: We discovered a new virus

U.S.A.: So what?

China: It’s dangerous

USA: It’s only a flu

China: Wear a mask

USA: Don’t wear a mask

China: Stay at home

USA: It’s violating human rights

China: Building temporary hospitals

USA: It’s a concentration camp

China: Built in ten days

USA: Show off

China: Time to lock-down

USA: How barbaric

February

China: It’s overwhelming our medical system

USA: Look how backward China is

China: The virus is killing doctors

USA: Typical Third World

China: It’s airborne

USA: It’ll magically go away in April

China: Everyone stay home

USA: Violation of human rights

March

China: Our numbers are now dropping

USA: Impossible!! Look at Italy!

China: We wore masks

USA: You lied to us

China: We made our data public

USA: You kept everything secret

China: Your people are now dying

USA: You didn’t warn us

China: We said it was dangerous

USA: You lied!

April

China: We said it was airborne

USA: You gave false data. Why didn’t you warn us?

China: We said it was dangerous

USA: The virus is not dangerous. But millions of Chinese are dead. Even though the virus is not dangerous. We are correct. Even though we contradict ourselves.

China: Gosh!! Just listen to yourself.

USA: That’s right. You lied! We did nothing for three months. And because the W.H.O. agrees with China we’re cutting funding for the W.H.O.

China: Are you listening to yourselves?

USA: We are always correct. Even though we contradict ourselves.

China: That’s what I love best about you Americans, your consistency.

    1. All U.S. “intelligence” agencies are currently conspiring to make it appear as if the virus was created in a lab despite all evidence to the contrary. The people of the U.S. are being led around like sheep just like in the days leading up to the Iraq War. People are going to call us crazy but we’ve got to push back against the imperialist propaganda.

  2. Reblogged this on It Is What It Is and commented:
    American arrogance portrayed one more time … ‘A new video from Xinhua News Agency uses LEGO characters to illustrate the difference in the Chinese and American responses to the emergence of COVID-19.’
