ABSTRACT

China's Deep State: The Communist Party and the Coronavirus   [open html - 0B]

From the Key Findings: "[1] China's initial mishandling of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], and its subsequent suppression of the virus, reflects the weaknesses and strengths of the governing system. [2] The power of the communist party, once applied in full, is akin to 'war powers' in a democracy and has proved highly effective in containing the virus within China. [3] China's early lack of openness, subsequent trumpeting of its achievements, and mishandled diplomacy provoked backlash abroad and have damaged its global image."
