Why the West is overreacting to coronavirus

The West hasn't been so clamorous about the outbreaks of Ebola and Swine flu viruses, even though the rate of infections and deaths of those viruses were far more than that of the novel coronavirus.

Is sympathy too much to ask for from Western media?

The Chinese do not want another province or city to be sacrificed. Before that happens, we must remain steadfast in achieving our goal.
