The Russian aid to Italy was perceived in quite a strange way by some European media – French President Emmanuel Macron had also shown concerns about it. This situation shows that the EU continues to keep the concept of the Russian enemy alive. A similar concept of the “Chinese enemy” appeared in the USA as there were attempts to call the Coronavirus a “Chinese virus”. It is pure racism – unfortunately, there will be no quick reconciliation.
Some Western tools in the fight with the Coronavirus remind the theory of natural selection. How can they treat older people in such a way? In the case of Iran, no one has heard about old people being left without medical assistance. The attitude towards the old is one of the indicators of civilization. Also, would someone without an insurance be cured in the USA – no. We are not ready for the coronavirus epidemic because we have destroyed a social state. The virus has shown that the market economy is naked.
This message is part of the Kremlin’s disinformation campaign around the Coronavirus epidemic – it promotes a narrative of failing Western efforts in the fight with the epidemic.
The message that the Western states limit the access of the older and uninsured population to medical care in conditions of the Coronavirus epidemics is a conspiracy theory. The main focus of the medical and social services of Western states is to assist the older population as it is the main risk group for this disease.
In the USA, the treatment of the uninsured persons having the coronavirus will be financed from the state budget.
