    Why China has to pay: China can treat their citizens like a number, killing how many they want for social order, but for people who live outside China father, mother, son, daughter, grandmother,grandfather , uncle, Aunty, sister, brother comes before country or the leader. That’s why the evil chineese communist party is a threat to the world. It’s a party which will kill in billions to stay relevant, a satanist state. They have caused this virus, and they must pay in trillions of dollars and gold to the world, as compensation. All there external assets must be seized. The ccp should be dismantled permanently. It’s responsible for the China virus and world wide corruption of world bodies such as WHO, which was pathetic in its response, it looked more like the China health organization. Ccp should be investigated for the killings of Fologong Buddhist and uiger Muslims who’s organs are harvested for organ transplant in ccp hospitals. Ccp should be investigated for the extinction of the

    To be safe, it is necessary to disinfect the test kits before use, as its originates from China that is home to Corona virus family!

    All are contaminated. China is unreliable. They just want to rule world. And have already taken Lanka.

    Please check with many western countries. I believe they returned most Chinese kits. Obviously here there will be no adverse reporting even if the kits are defective. Lots of rear admirals want to feel important.

    No thank you. Please send the plane back. It probably is contaminated too. Globally Chinese test kits are being refused. We should not become a dumping ground again.

    Very interesting. China was given medical supplies as aid by western countries. Most of them end-up in reselling by the chinese Citizens. The Bloody "WHO" or "WHORE" and it's Leaderships are nothing but playing the Chinese Commmunist Party's cards. WHO President is not a Medical doctor but have Doctorate in different field. The Blind is leading the Blinds. Sri lanka should seek advice and medical help from anywhere but China!
