The Chinese must face some kind of reckoning. According to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, there is ample evidence that the virus escaped from a laboratory in Wuhan.
The Chinese immediately stopped all internal Chinese flights in and out of Wuhan. They allowed international flights to continue in what can only be described as a catastrophic error or a display of mind-numbing arrogance.
Either way, it was reckless and stupid and must not go unpunished.
As soon as anything resembling criticism is directed at China, the shutters go up. They get angry, spiteful and ominously threatening. Totalitarian regimes value nothing more than secrecy.
This is one time when the free world must not fear standing up to the Chinese and demanding some form of apology.
The apology will not be forthcoming, but if the entire developed world stands up and gets stuck into the Chinese, their humiliation would be as big as it would be deserved.
