As coronavirus cases soar in Europe and America, China has begun sending medical supplies to hard hit regions of the globe in order to portray itself as humanitarian and international leader. This calculated diplomacy comes only after Beijing covered up the COVID-19 outbreak that has now claimed tens of thousands of lives globally.

Meanwhile, the Chinese Communist Party is using the World Health Organization to cloak itself in legitimacy and deploying propaganda about the origin of the virus, all in an attempt to distract from its mismanagement of the crisis. General Secretary Xi’s coronavirus diplomacy is an extension of the long-term strategy intended to give it a foothold in afflicted regions to exercise political power and further increase their dependence on China.

Join Hudson Institute as experts discuss the geopolitical consequences of China using the COVID-19 crisis to establish a “global health silk road” spanning Europe, South Asia and East Asia.
