Got my new “ironic” brush today. 
“FRIGHTING FOR 2020” with an N95 mask...
I suppose that’s a veiled reference to Xi’s coverup of the outbreak and then lying about the cases.
26 mm “finest” badger fan.
It will be a real keepsake...eventually.

If the mask unsolicited from China, more likely a backhanded insult; their press is suggesting US a third world country with people dying on streets of disease that China conquered.

It would have been more appropriate if they had sent a drawing of Winnie the Pooh.

Could it be a typo as is common on Chinese products? They presumably intended for it to say "Fighting For 2020" - Chinese folks are usually good people but their government is a festering pustule in need of lancing.

I really think that the political tone and obvious hatred of the OP have no place here. Covid-19 has been with us for 4ish months. No one really knows that much about who did what when; who knew what when; but when we are all back to normal or whatever normal looks like after an effective vaccine and treatment protocol are developed, some smart journalist(s) can win a Pulitzer prize and then write a best seller. Until then, don't waste energy that could be used to take care of yourself and your family as best you can.

With all due respect, and even being a decided far leftist, it is absolutely clear who did what and when to spread this curse throughout the world through affirmative acts.  We even know with virtual certainty where it originated and patient zero.  What we don't know with certainty is whether this was engineered as a laboratory experiment to investigate future medical treatments or as a bio weapon.  What we don't know is whether this, once it escaped the lab, was intentionally allowed to spread throughout the world or whether it spread through sheer incompetence although we do know China isolated domestic travel within Wuhan while international travel went unabated.  Those are just facts published by Chinese academic researchers and leading papers around the world based on investigation.

China won WW3 without firing a single missile.

If China sent this as a weapon to win WW3, why are they providing the world with PPE at this point? Why are they allowing the published facts to be published at all? Certainly, China has the wherewithal to squash any mention of the virus both domestically and internationally. No government has taken the virus seriously. Just today I read that the leader of Brazil is still calling it a little flu as hospitals are overrun with virus patients and mass graves are dug. Hating the Chinese does nothing to help the situation at hand, endangers the lives of innocent Chinese people around the world, and will waste time and energy that could be put to better use.

Because China is fighting journalistic/academic publication and exposure hammer and tongs.  Scientists publishing studies that are less than complementary are being silenced and in some cases disappearing; foreign journalists as well as entire foreign press staffs writing exposes are having visas revoked and sent out of the country.  PPE was purchased in masse from foreign entities by the Chinese when they were prevaricating about the disease and are now being sold back to the West at usurious pricing.  Also they are affirmatively using the full resources of the government to spread panic throughout the West with propaganda and stories envoking public panic.  These are incontrovertible facts reported widely by reliable sources across the political spectrum; not sure where you are sourcing your information.  My opinion of Bolsonaro is not germane to this conversation as it is up to the people of Brasil to determine their desired government, internal policies and future - yes, not every US citizen is a military crazed Jingo pursuing manifest destiny fantasies. 

I never suggested China Intentionally released this but rather how they reacted post escape from the lab; there is debate whether they took a let's see how this plays out approach or were just the most inept incompetent bureaucrats in modern history although the efforts to mitigate against the facts being known tends to indicate the former over the latter.

My father was Asian, not like I hate the race as he was the finest man ever known but giving peoples a pass on their misanthropic behavior because of ethnicity is every bit as racist as indicting somebody because of ethnicity.
