US hits a new low in demonizing China on vaccines, climate change

By Chen Weihua | China Daily | Updated: 2021-05-21 00:00

It's no secret that American leaders are obsessed with demonizing China, but slandering China for its role in global issues such as the fight against climate change and COVID-19 betrays the United States' promise to strengthen multilateral cooperation and instead undermine global solidarity.

Unfortunately, US President Joe Biden did that again when he announced on Monday that Washington will share another 20 million novel coronavirus vaccine doses in addition to the 60 million AstraZeneca doses it had pledged earlier.

It was good to see the Biden administration finally deciding to halt its vaccine nationalism in the face of growing pressure at home and abroad. Biden's announcement came days after World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus made a fresh appeal to rich nations to share the vaccines with poorer countries so they could vaccinate their healthcare workers and vulnerable groups before vaccinating children and others.
