China is reshaping UN development workwww.passblue.com19 July 2023 (LINK)

— Since taking over FAO in 2019, Qu Dongyu, recently re-elected, has been credited with making FAO more agile through management reform and innovative partnership mechanisms, including the Hand-in-Hand initiative. At the same time, Qu has attracted criticism for his initial position on the war against Ukraine, which echoed Russian rhetoric, and for evading UN accountability structures.

Taken altogether, Chinese engagement with the UN development pillar reflects a notion of multilateralism that differs from established (Western) concepts. China seems to see the UN more as a platform for facilitating bilateral exchanges, thriving on individual member state contributions. China’s approach receives low scores on conventional global governance indices. But it might well offer a mechanism for adjusting the UN to changing political realities.

China is in default on a trillion dollars in debt to US bondholders. Will the US force repayment? cf the UK under Thatcher →thehill.com4 July 2023 (LINK)

— The United States pays interest on approximately $850 billion in debt held by the People's Republic of China. China, however, is currently in default on its sovereign debt held by American bondholders. "Thatcher said that for China to have access to U.K. capital markets [on the return of Hong Kong to China in 1987], it had to honor the defaulted Chinese sovereign debt held by British subjects. Faced with that stark choice, China agreed. Unfortunately, the U.S. failed to take such a common-sense stance. To this day, China has had access to U.S. capital markets while openly rejecting its sovereign debt obligations to American bondholders."

BF.7: What to know about China's Omicron COVID variant: cbsnews20 December 2022 (LINK)

— Reports from China indicate BF.7 has the strongest infection ability out of the Omicron subvariants in the country, being quicker to transmit than other variants, having a shorter incubation period, and with greater capacity to infect people who have had a previous COVID infection, or been vaccinated, or both. To put this into context, BF.7 is believed to have an R0, or basic reproduction number, of 10 to 18.6. This means an infected person will transmit the virus to an average of 10 to 18.6 other people. Research has shown Omicron has an average R0 of 5.08. The high transmission rate of BF.7, taken with the risk of hidden spread due to the many asymptomatic carriers, is understood to be causing significant difficulty in controlling the epidemic in China.
