  • Bishop Emeritus of Hong Kong Cardinal Joseph Zen took it to Twitter to share a statement he made during an online forum.
  • He said that China started the pandemic and the communist country become a “threat to the world”.
  • Cardinal Zen also said that the “world disaster” of the pandemic has become an awakening for everybody.

Bishop Emeritus of Hong Kong Cardinal Joseph Zen shared on his Twitter account a statement he gave in an online forum. The video conference was about the “Post-Pandemic Humanity.”

Entitled “Post Pandemic Globalization: The Role of China and the United States — Analysis and Action”, Cardinal Zen directly linked the coronavirus pandemic to China’s “lies and violence” and imperialist ambition.

“The fact is (the) pandemic started in China and it spread quickly over the whole world,” Cardinal Zen said.

China and Globalization

In his Twitter account, he said this post was a short reflection on the “tragic reality” of the coronavirus pandemic. He also described the virus as the “apocalyptic dimension causing incalculable loss of lives and economic resources.”

“We don’t see the end of it yet,” Cardinal Zen added.

However, Cardinal Zen likewise suggested that experts and stakeholders should start discussing and analyzing the “obvious facts.” In that way, policy makers can prepare for the “rebuilding” of the society and future defenses for disaster.

Cardinal Zen reiterated that the COVID-19 virus originated in Wuhan, China. Likewise, he blamed the swift spread of the virus to “globalization.”

He also pointed out that the spread of the virus could have been contained if its origin communicated the outbreak early since we are living in a time when news can be passed along much faster.

“The modern progress in communication could provide timely alarm and contain that spreading. Obviously something went wrong,” he said.

In a recent Elite Readers article entitled: “Let’s admit it, Coronavirus is ‘made in China”, we read that Beijing failed to disclose about the virus for more than two weeks. The virus started infecting people in December 2019, but it was only during the last week of January when China announced about the outbreak in Wuhan. The Sydney Morning Herald Political and International editor Peter Hartcher said in a short period of secrecy, the virus started to scatter throughout China and the world.

China’s lies and violence

Cardinal Zen said the “world disaster” caused by the pandemic, became a great “awakening for everybody”.

“Against China’s lies and violence, the world should uphold the truth. Now we realize how more important is the truth, our right to information and the freedom of expression,” he said.
