    Where is everybody ?



    Two months after lockdown officially ended in Wuhan.

    After they tested the whole population of the city (~10m) and found only 300 cases

    If they tested that many then quite a few of those 5m that left for Chinese new year have returned to Wuhan

    Why are people still afraid

    In Britain, the group will be co-chaired by the Labour peer Helena Kennedy and the former Conservative party leader Iain Duncan-Smith.

    The other members of the group are Japan, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Germany, Australia and the European Union, as well as the US.

    The US senators Marco Rubio and Robert Menendez are co-chairs.
    That's the list of countries for now.

    China’s increasingly authoritarian direction under Xi Jinping has undermined the belief that drove decades of engagement by democratic countries: that as the country became wealthier, it would open up politically.

    The group said in a statement: “The assumptions that once underpinned our engagement with Beijing no longer correspond to the reality.

    “The Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China has been created to promote a coordinated response between democratic states to challenges posed by the present conduct and future ambitions of the People’s Republic of China.”

    “By developing a common set of principles and frameworks that transcend domestic party divisions and international borders, our democracies will be able to keep the rules-based and human rights systems true to their founding purposes.”
    In the quest for a greater China, XJP has jeopardised the perception that China has in the world.
