COVID-19 & its Effects on the ‘Balance of Power’

Published

on

In January and February of this year, there was great rejoicing in US foreign policy circles that the Chinese Communist Party would now fall apart, as controlling the Coronavirus epidemic would not be enough for China. And it will lead to such an economic decline that it will not be possible for the Communist Party to sustain it. But as China took a step towards recovery and the Coronavirus turned to the West, it turned into unwise joy and enthusiasm into irrational despair.

Commentators began to express anger and regret that China’s control of the coronavirus would prove its political and geographical superiority, leaving the West and the United States far behind. The problem was that China had raised concerns about the coronavirus being a US product. Along with this, the steps were taken by China to prevent Corona, and above all, China also launched a program called Corona Relief globally. Chinese intellectuals and commentators also began to call it a victory for China. They saw it as a victory for the Chinese communist system and expressed happiness that the Americans were terrified of the epidemic. The victory in the People’s War against Corona was attributed to China. Despite all the efforts of ideological fighters, the painful truth is that both China and the United States will be weakened by the deadly effects of this epidemic.

Neither the Chinese Empire nor the American Empire will emerge from the ruins of the Corona-stricken countries, but both states will be weakened internally and externally. And there are fears that the result could be international anarchy.

In the time to come, three factors will be the benchmark for global change. First, what will be the change in the economic and military power of the great powers after this epidemic? The second thing that will be even more important is how the world will view these economic and military changes. And third, what strategy do the great powers adopt? Based on these three factors, the United States and China will certainly be concerned about their global impact on how to sustain and increase them.

The Americans are trying to move forward with the fact that China has not properly informed the world or its people about the coronavirus. In this way, the Americans are conspiring to make people believe that it is China that has infected its people with this epidemic and that the epidemic is spreading all over the world because of them. That is why there are cracks in the Communist Party inside China. The Americans are happy with this and are telling the rest of the world that Chinese leader Xi is losing his grip. Contrary to popular expectations, the Chinese economy has been hit hard. The West believes that China will have a hard time coping with this economic shock and that it’s domestic production will not increase.

As far as American power is concerned, the mismanagement of President Trump’s administration has made it clear to the world that it is a power that cannot deal with its own crisis but will deal with the crisis of others. The United States is becoming somewhat divided internally, and after this epidemic, it will become even weaker.

Journalist Imran Riaz said that there are some people in Pakistan who are forced to live below the poverty line but there are also some people who belong to wealthy families but they are the ones who are abusing Prime Minister Imran Khan from a long time. They are using abusive language for Prime Minister Imran Khan only because they are used to make money in Pakistan through illegal means, and for these people, Prime Minister Imran Khan has proven to be unlucky.

“I was very happy to see when a man who is causing damage to Pakistan gets ruined,” he said. In the last few days, many people have been ruined who wanted to earn profit through illegal means. For example, N95 mask which is said to be a very good mask against COVID-19, was suddenly perished from the market by profiteers in Pakistan and the same mask was sold in black to make huge profits, even though its price had reached Rs 2,000, but now the same mask is available in the market for only Rs 150.

He said that as the cases of Coronavirus increased in Pakistan, the price of hand sanitizers increased and it was sold in the black market for high prices. Profiteering mafia stockpiles massive hand sanitizers to make a profit in the future, but due to the decrease in the Corona cases, there are no buyers to buy it now. The profiteering mafia is facing severe losses at the moment.

“I am very happy with the news that contrary to the estimates of international organizations, the spread of the coronavirus in Pakistan has stopped, which is a piece of bad news for illegal profiteers because they purchased Corona related goods worth billions. The medicines are now available in the market at low rates, thanks to some necessary steps taken by the government. The availability of medicines in the market is good news for the poor but devastating news for the profiteers,” he said.
