TAIWAN NEWS -- An Ly is an English master’s student at San Francisco State University.

“China’s vaccine tactic has failed since the first days,” Ly wrote. “Instead of using the vaccine to help countries in need and fix its relationships with other Southeast Asian countries due to disputes in the South China Sea, China has used its vaccine as a tool to get a political advantage. But, that is not the only reason China'’s vaccine diplomacy collapsed. The new variants of coronavirus are a test for made-in-China vaccines, and China has failed that test.”
