JIANLI YANG AND AARON RHODES ON 8/12/20 AT 6:30 AM EDT “Genocide” is a word that should only be used with great caution in the world of international relations and human rights.

Posted on Aug 7, 2020

By: Jianli Yang August 7, 2020             When the COVID-19 outbreak first occurred in Wuhan, China, few people thought that this epidemic would have such a significant impact in the West. This is certainly related to the fact China covered up the outbreak and misled the world in its early stages. It also has to do with misinformation and bad advice from the World Health Organization (WHO).[1] However, these facts do not constitute the entire cause; some responsibility must also be borne by each country itself. With the high frequency of international travel in the modern era, it would have...
