China and the Pandemic w/ Ian Goodrum

April 13, 2020

On this edition of Parallax Views, Ian Goodrum of China Daily offers his take on the COVID-19/coronavirus as an American living abroad in China. For some, this interview may prove particularly controversial as Ian makes no bones about coming from a pro-China perspective and working for state-owned media outlet within the country. With that in mind, I think that this proved an interesting conversation about how China handled the pandemic, conspiracy theories concerning COVID-19 as a bioweapon, accusations of countries (particularly China) fudging the number of actual deaths, China's intentions in relation to providing aid to other countries, the issue of "wet markets", and much more.
