  • China or other countries recovered from what? Covid is propaganda, tests are fake and vaccine is poisonous. Or are there fools that believe there is only one desease? If tomorrow someone will tell you to wear purple hats to protect you from jumping frogs, most of you will do it, because you simply believe the lies without analysing it.

  • I wish the BBC could hire a China correspondent who actually spoke Mandarin without sounding like an Aussie backpacker. His tones were all over the place and his pronunciation is cringey as fuck. For example, in the beginning bit, he tried to ask: "卖得好吗?" which means "Are you selling well?" and he pronounced it as "买得好吗" which roughly would mean "can you buy it?". He's saved by the context, but in any other situation, a Mandarin speaker would look at you perplexed.

  • No surprises. It’s all political. British government desperately needs this after the lockdown. Merely to ease people and telling them lockdown is not against democracy or freedom, but the best they can do for now.

  • Who confirmed covid came from bats. A lot asain country puls Africa eat bats so why did it not start in those area. covid could literally start anywhere because no one really knows where did covid really came from. Covid is hard to control at frist because it doesn't acttak you right away that means people won't get sick right away what if a person travels while having covid they could spead the virus to everyone. at the same time the world won't notice about it because at frist people won't show any symptoms what if those people travels. Think about it we can't blame china completely.

  • IT'S NOT A POSITIVE NEWS!!!(at least not what the reporter think) quote from Stephen McDonell from Twitter ------------------- I fail to see what’s “embarrassing”. We interview people. They tell us things and we put it on air. What’s embarrassing is dopey nationalists in China trying to squeeze some pathetic anti-foreign journalist angle out of the most straightforward uncontroversial piece. ------------------- "nationalists" is what he really feels. i guess bbc is still the same old bbc, nothing changed
