The prospect of confrontation without dialogue between China and the United States is unthinkable, even dangerous — especially during a pandemic. But unless something is done soon, that’s where things are heading.
Public opinion in the United States pins the blame for the COVID-19 pandemic squarely on China. After all, that’s where the virus started.

It was not one lone decision that allowed the coronavirus to spread around the world, and the tit-for-tat game the U.S. and China seem to be playing is doing nothing to improve our current situation. The time for cooperation is now.
