A young man from Hong Kong urges Western countries to protect people from COVID-19 at Human Rights Council
On September 15, Wu Zequan, a young man from the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China, delivered a speech at the 48th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council as a representative of a non-governmental organization, urging Western countries to attach importance to the safety of people’s lives.
Wu Zequan said that the COVID-19 reflects the differences in governance concepts among countries. Facing the pandemic, Britain, France, and the United States performed badly.
Wu said The United States is still debating whether to wear masks, and it is difficult to implement prevention and control measures such as maintaining social distancing.He also said, due to ineffective response to the pandemic, many people in the U.S. have died. Some U.S. politicians are trying to blame the public’s dissatisfaction on China, and hypocritically finding the origin of COVID-19. This trick is of no benefit to the well-being of the American people. Politicians of all countries should learn lessons from the epidemic and put people’s lives and health in the first place.
