So "the UK is pissed" about China's disinformation campaign about covid-19, and the video asks "I had to wonder, though, at what point do we consider that an act of war?"

I'm just asking when we apply that rationale to the US government.

No, I'm referring to the disinformation campaign coming from the Oval Office.

The Event 201 scenario

The Event 201 scenario | A pandemic tabletop exercise

Quote:
Event 201 simulates an outbreak of a novel zoonotic coronavirus transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic.

Video

Quote:
Selected moments from the Event 201 pandemic tabletop exercise hosted byThe Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY. The exercise illustrated the pandemic preparedness efforts needed to diminish the large-scale economic and societal consequences of a severe pandemic.

Drawing from actual events, Event 201 identifies important policy issues and preparedness challenges that could be solved with sufficient political will and attention. These issues were designed in a narrative to engage and educate the participants and the audience.

Very true. My father and father-in-law have become much more pessimistic since they retired and started spending hours a day watching FOX.
