As further proof that the story is ironic, the coronavirus outbreak, which was “Made in China” and has multiplied out of control due to initial obfuscation and denial, could expand China`s global reach and influence. It took the fight against Covid-19 for some governments to recognize violence in women`s lives. France and Spain have adapted to the present moment by responding creatively to the unique circumstances of Covid-19. Since people could only leave their homes for the most part, these governments created ephemeral advisory services and asked survivors to seek help with code words at major businesses such as pharmacies. While this is not enough to end violence against women, it is an important step that should have been taken independently of a war. These countries should continue these post-Covid-19 programmes to ensure that women can safely seek help whenever they want. From a European point of view, China`s decentralization is considered dishonest, since the natives are only subordinates who have no civic responsibility other than respect for the center. The opposite is true in decentralized Western democracies. Local structures in Europe, for example, respond more quickly and better to local requirements than the national centre. They should also draw on local needs and assessments with the central government so that it can shape its national policies accordingly. The strikingly different performance of Italy`s two neighboring provinces, Lombardy – the original Covid-19 disaster area in Europe – and Veneto – which led an early and successful fight against the virus – was caused by erroneous initial decisions by the provincial government in Milan, led by the far-right Lega party.
The Italian judicial system has already been activated to decide whether such decisions should be prosecuted. Anything is possible in the coming months, but it`s hard to see Trump getting re-elected if conditions don`t improve to contain the virus. And it`s hard to see a way for containment efforts to improve significantly during this time. China`s dilemma over international sanctions against North Korea is the fear that strict enforcement could lead North Korea to collapse. .
