Original title: Kissinger issued an article stressing that the United States must make major efforts in three areas!

First of all, strengthen the global ability to resist infectious diseases, avoid the dangerous complacency caused by the advancement of medical technology, and constantly develop new infectious disease prevention and control technologies and vaccines. Local governments must also be consistently prepared to protect their people from epidemics. Second, in an effort to heal the world ’s economic trauma, the government should seek to mitigate the impact of the economic recession on the most vulnerable people. Third, uphold the principles of world order, exercise restraint in internal affairs and diplomacy, and determine the priority of issues.

Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger published a column entitled “The New Coronavirus Pandemic Will Change the World Order Forever” in the US Wall Street Journal. Kissinger pointed out in the article that the new coronavirus attacks humans on an unprecedented scale and violent degree. The impact on human health may be temporary, but the political and economic turmoil it causes may continue for generations. Countries must solve current problems on the basis of cooperation, otherwise they will face the worst.

“The surreal atmosphere of the new global pneumonia global pandemic reminds me of my feelings as a young man in the 84th Infantry Division during the World War II salient battle “” Kissinger wrote that now, as in 1944, there is an early sense of danger, this kind of danger is not directed against any specific person, but a random attack and destruction. “Now, in a divided country, (we) need an efficient and visionary government in order to overcome unprecedented obstacles. Maintaining the trust of the public is crucial to social solidarity, relations between societies, and international peace and stability.”

Kissinger pointed out that after the new virus crown, the world is no longer what it used to. The new corona virus attacks humans on an unprecedented scale and intensity. Its spread is exponential: the number of cases in the United States doubles every 5 days. In this case, there is no cure. Medical supplies are also insufficient to cope with the increasing number of cases. The intensive care unit has reached the edge of being overwhelmed. The amount of testing is insufficient to determine the extent of the infection, let alone reverse its spread. A successful vaccine may take 12 to 18 months. “The unity and prosperity of the country are based on the belief that national institutions can anticipate disasters, prevent their impact and restore stability. And when the new corona virus pandemic ends, many national institutions will be regarded as failures.”

Kissinger believes The new coronavirus attack on human health is temporary, but the political and economic turmoil it causes may continue for generations. No country, even the United States, can fight this virus through pure national efforts. Solving current problems must ultimately be combined with a vision and plan for global cooperation. If we cannot do both, we will face the worst.

Kissinger emphasized that the United States must make major efforts in three areas. First of all, strengthen the global ability to resist infectious diseases, avoid the dangerous complacency caused by the advancement of medical technology, and constantly develop new infectious disease prevention and control technologies and vaccines. Local governments must also be consistently prepared to protect their people from epidemics. Second, in an effort to heal the world ’s economic trauma, the government should seek to mitigate the impact of the economic recession on the most vulnerable people. Third, uphold the principles of world order, exercise restraint in internal affairs and diplomacy, and determine the priority of issues.

At the end of the full text, Kissinger wrote: “We live in a new era. The historic challenge faced by leaders of all countries is to build a future while responding to crises. Failure may ignite.” (Zhang Mengxu)
