John Bolton Issues Scathing Take on China’s Virus Response: ‘Must Be Held Accountable’

John Bolton was downright furious with China’s handling of the crisis.

Around the mainstream media this week, an argument of nomenclature raged:  Was it politically correct to refer to the novel Covid-19 causing strain of coronavirus by its origins in Wuhan, China?

The controversy revolved mostly around President Trump’s insistence on referring to the illness as the “Chinese virus” or “Wuhan Virus”.  Others in the administration were chastised for their use of the insensitive term “Kung Flu”, with the President himself throwing shade at whomever was behind it.

It seems the belief on the left side of the aisle is that referring to the virus via its Chinese origins is somehow in poor taste – something that isn’t true when speaking about the Spanish Flu of 1918.  The fear here is that someone out there will see this moniker as an invitation to discriminate against the Chinese people, which is not an appropriate behavior in any which way.

Now the Chinese government, on the other hand…they have some explaining to do.  At least according to John Bolton.

Former National Security Adviser John Bolton condemned China for its handling of the coronavirus outbreak and called on the rest of the world to “act” and hold the communist government accountable.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and his Communist Party have been accused of silencing doctors and critics in the early stages of the coronavirus, costing thousands of lives.

“China silenced coronavirus whistleblowers, expelled journalists, destroyed samples, refused CDC help, and concealed counts of deaths and infections. It’s fact there was a massive coverup. China is responsible. The world must act to hold them accountable,” the former U.N. ambassador tweeted.

This certainly isn’t the first time that China’s response to the pandemic has been called into question, with a number of doctors from the Asian superpower having attempted to previously sound the alarm on Covid-19.
