Instead of learning from China, Trump has blamed her instead but turned to South Korea for help just ...

"Will the US as the world's hegemonic advanced superpower and champion of western democracy, human rights and freedom be anytime coming to the aid of India, the world's largest democracy?"

"Long ago they seemed to have learned that physical contact led to illness even though they didn't know the existence of microscopic organisms that cause diseases."
But modern day Chinese are imitating the west in their handshakes!

That's right.

Think of it this way:

A teacher used to tell her students not to pick their noses.  Fifteen years afterwards one of his students became a billionaire and went to visit her.  The student told his teacher that he was the only one in her class that continued to pick his nose.  Curious to find out if that has anything to do with his being a billionaire, the teacher began picking her nose and gradually even grew to like the feel of it.

Handshaking was strictly a Western social practice.  No other civilized humans used it regularly as a form of greeting before European cultural influence began to soar after the Age of Discovery.  

Etiquette norms are established according to political and military pecking order, not on principles of hygienic practice.

Handshaking is a very unhygienic practice, it passes germs around,  the Chinese should not imitate the Westerners! The Indians don't do that, their namaste greeting is more hygienic!

One can't help being baffled by why the world's richest country, which spend billions of $$ fighting wars and invading other countries, is so ill-prepared to fight this tiny virus!  There is a huge shortage of medical equipment; in NY, they are having to share one ventilator with two patients, elsewhere, nurses use garbage bags as facemasks. This is no joke, it is sadly true!

True.

In Chinese there is a saying, "Those who start out trying to harm other people end up harming themselves." (害人终害己)。
