Remember this? Screenshot from Johns Hopkins University's #Covid19 board long before this was deemed a #pandemic. Seen the name of the virus in the title line? #Wuhan representing! Seen where the virus had been spotted by January 29th? Yup, #China. But hey, this mess could have started anywhere, right? Nope. Top-down authoritarian systems offer no reward for reporting problems. The messenger always gets shot. This slows down the response and avoids learning from mistakes. This is the #CCPvirus.
