China's totalitarian socialism is superior to democracy in the pandemic fight

At least that’s what Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi believes. He wants the world to buy the fiction that the communist regime is the perfect answer to fighting the coronavirus pandemic.  He said, “China’s signature strength, efficiency and speed in this fight has been widely acclaimed.
