There’s an odd opinion piece in the Washington Post Wednesday by journalist Xinyan Yu. She writes about the different approaches to containing the coronavirus taken by China and the United States. She admits that neither has been entirely successful and notes that China approached the COVID-19 pandemic as one nation and not as a collective of individual states. But why this headline, WaPo?

She’s from Wuhan, but she never says in the piece that she’s been back to Wuhan anytime recently; it’s almost certain she hasn’t.

But Chinese officials were suggesting that U.S. Army troops brought the coronavirus to Wuhan … who are you going to believe?

She apparently did call her family in Wuhan, so maybe she contracted it over the phone.
