China has been trying to get the U.S to focus more on cooperation against Covid-19, oftentimes to no avail.
In a recent tweet, the Chinese Ambassador to the United States Qin Gang called for better cooperation against Covid-19, This comes after the U.S is on an upward trend in new cases, primarily fueled by the new Covid strain Delta.
According to scientists at Yale Medicine, the delta variant is 50% more contagious than the alpha variant, which originated in the United Kingdom and is the most common strain of the virus seen in the U.S.
Fine in quarantine for a week now, yet the rampant spread of Delta variant is concerning. Infections in the US are resurging, and there’re local outbreaks in China. How about our two countries working together on solutions, e.g. more effective vaccines & helping other countries? pic.twitter.com/bhOcawTYxz— Qin Gang 秦刚 (@ChinaAmbinUS) August 6, 2021
