WHO On "Racism" Nonsense Re: "Chinese Virus": Bogus Pretense Of Expertise, Laughably Fallacious Arguments

Holy crap these people.
No time now, but...obviously: medical expertise doesn't make you some sort of "expert" on "racist" language. The WHO has no expertise and no authority with respect to those issues.
How about these straw men, eh?:
viruses know no borders and they don't care [about] your ethnicity, the color of your skin, how much money you have in the bank
Oh! Gosh! We all thought the virus itself had a race (sorry! "ethnicity"!) and was Chinese! And it had skin of a certain tone! And that it was...well...I'm not sure what that last bit's about. Is he suggesting that we thought the virus was poor or something? Jesus Christ, these aren't even minimally passable as straw men...
   Trump's being a dumbass by overextending from the perfectly-acceptable-and-perhaps-even-optimal 'Wuhan coronavirus' and 'a virus from China' to 'Chinese virus' and 'foreign virus.' And he's the damn POTUS, so even small errors matter.
   But PC is far, far, far more dangerous than Trump, and it's infected basically every significant institution. It's based on lies, distortions and absolutely godawful reasoning. And it absolutely, positively will not rest...even during a global pandemic...
