Victor Davis Hanson, Hoover, & National Review Online, in re: Excellent source in Guangdong says that the number of afflicted cases of Wuhan coronavirus is more like 100,000. It's staggering. The bargain hitherto was: “You give us a good economy, we’ll give you loyalty.”  But that’s breaking. We don't have fixed numbers of lethality for transmissiblity.  How are Chinese people responding to millions of their compatriots’ being locked into their homes? With humor. The most common phrase on the Net yesterday was, “Where is Trump?”— that’s their way of saying, “Where is Xi?” since they dasn’t use the hallowed name of their leader-for life. The combination of the trade deal, and he sinking economy, and he million-plus Uyghurs in Xinjang concentration camps, it looks as though the Chinese [governance] is collapsing. The Chinese leadership is rotten, dishonest.
