Chinese dictator Xi Jinping promised the whole world that his Communist Party would be giving away free Chinese coronavirus vaccines, all paid for by Beijing. Xi made his announcement on Monday during the World’s Health Assembly session. The dictator confidently made his promise amid years of known failed vaccine scandals in China and their other neighboring countries.

The World Health Organization (WHO), which has been known to be China’s puppy, offered Xi one of the first available speaking positions during the virtual assembly on Monday to make his statements unchallenged.

“In China, after making painstaking efforts and enormous sacrifice, we have turned the tide on the virus and protected the life and health of our people,” Xi told the audience, which seemed like the complete opposite of what was truly happening in China as there have been reported surges in cases following the lifting of their lockdown orders.

“All along, we have acted with openness, transparency, and responsibility. We have provided information to the WHO and the relevant countries in the most timely fashion,” the Chinese dictator continued—another false statement as the rest of the world knows how the Chinese government has tried to cover up the coronavirus situation and how they withheld crucial information needed to mitigate the spread of the disease better.

Then Xi proceeded to announce his promise of giving away vaccines. “COVID-19 [Chinese coronavirus] vaccine development and deployment in China, when available, will be made a global public good. This will be China’s contribution to ensuring vaccine accessibility and affordability in developing countries,” Xi declared. He also added that China would provide $2 billion for two years to help with the COVID-19 response across the world.

The problem with Xi’s promise? Chinese vaccines are infamous. They are so infamous that even state-owned media outlets openly admit that Chinese parents choose foreign-made products rather than local ones.

One of the biggest vaccine scandals under Xi’s regime was the Changsheng scandal. Changsheng Biotechnology apparently produced nearly a million substandard vaccines, which were distributed to hundreds of thousands of children throughout China. The Changsheng scandal led to widespread protests in the country and was just one of the many pharmaceutical companies in China that produced watered down and ineffective vaccines. However, instead of getting the faulty vaccines out of Chinese clinics, hospitals, and homes, Xi put more focus on silencing outraged parents and citizens who caused protests.

China’s substandard vaccine did not only affect their country, but also their neighbors, including North Korea, who didn’t have a very functional healthcare system. Even so, North Koreans actively avoided taking China-made medications and vaccines, fearing that it might give them more harm than cure.
