Regarding reliance on Chinese products, after checking down on Ebay and Lazada and noticing that 97% of goods for sale are from China, one can only wonder what the other consumer item manufacturing countries are doing ? After buying a "Made in China" power bar recently and plugging in a small kettle, there was an immediate explosion and puff of smoke. A destructive investigation revealed that the internal copper wiring was slightly thicker than a human hair, which incidentally is very good for reducing cost of manufacture and hence the competition 🙂

Are you sure it was not a vibrator, they use small wires.

While the US has been spending on guns ,bombs and aircraft carrier the Chinese have been developing infrastructure.Now the Yanks realize they are behind in 5g. So because they can't beat them they try to screw them.

The tragedy is that China ever got to be so essential. Everything, IMO, to do with greed and the 1%'s desire to get even richer by exploiting workers in other countries.

Hopefully this is the beginning of the end for China's dominance. They are not "good guys", as is becoming ever more apparent.

Ha ha ha. Don't be daft. As you, very correctly, state - 'to do with greed' - is the nub of the problem. Do you seriously think that this dogwhistle virus has changed the minds of the greedy? NO, of course it hasn't, it has merely given them opportunities to make even more money. Is Apple suddenly going to announce that all their phones and components are going to be non-Chinese within 2 years? No, because they wouldn't make half as much as people wouldn't be prepared to pay a 50% 'greed surcharge' on the price and the market won't be happy to hear that their profits will be severely reduced. Same applies to any company dependent on Chinese components. They are all complicit. They all use them because it increases their profit and now you want to kill that profit by forcing them to use expensive substitutes. Political dogma will do more damage to the economy than any virus. There is still no vaccine for idiotic political dogma expected soon.

TV this morning said that 350,000,000 people had lost their jobs due to the Chinese virus. I think that proves that the world needs to completely rethink China and do away with them as much as necessary and  as soon as possible

That's right, do away with them until the Chinese People rise up and kill the communists.  They deserve nothing short of a slow death.

Chinese citizens are pretty content with their quality of life which is higher ranked than Italy and only 2 levels below USA. By 2025, China will overtake USA GDP. Don’t you know that they now socialist with capitalist characteristic with a central government. Maybe you should find out the definition of communist. Educational.

That would be quite the task for the world to try let alone the people of the nation (if they chose to), folks better realize they're positioned better than anyone presently, especially if the western nations don't test/trace their way to a clearer understanding of where they stand with infection rates. I believe going forward opportunities will open for them to lead the world in many areas while the west keeps floundering. A vaccine will even the playing field though the head start they gain may be insurmountable..
