The private conversation of a secretary for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in Wuhan was recently leaked to the public. She said she believes that it’s her responsibility to speak on behalf of the people.
Let me tell you guys, the situation is not good.
Don’t you think it seems alright? It seems as though there’s zero infections.
Let me tell you. You are not like us at the frontlines. You will never know what it is like now.
I will say it out loud. Why not? Let me tell you.
Other than being a secretary for the [Chinese Communist] Party, I am also a real person, one of you guys.
I have to consider things from the perspective of you people. Don’t I?
If you don’t tell, and I don’t tell, we will all become Li Wenliang.
When the Disciplinary Committee comes to inspect the epicenter, we will say what we are supposed to say. Why can’t I say it?
If I don’t say it as the party secretary, who will?
If I don’t say it, people will think that governance in Wuhan is good. In fact, it’s not.
