White people keep trying to play mind games with themselves, trying to convince themselves that China is lying and that the West is dealing with the pandemic better.
This is what happens to countries that are full of idiots. I am an Asian from Africa, and I was talking about how most of Africa is dealing with COVID very well. Then a white dude stepped in and said, "But they're so poor that they probably don't have the resources to track every infection". What an idiot. Even villagers in Congo rainforest can afford a mask, it is just stupid westerners refusing to wear it that is causing so many cases. Africans are smart, we have mosquitos that spread malaria so of course we know how to manage diseases. Same goes with Asia--most of East Asia was prepared for this.
