How China Halted Coronavirus Using A 'Social Nuclear Weapon'

China halted the coronavirus using a 'social nuclear weapon' of extreme measures that other countries will struggle to replicate, an expert has warned.  

Nicholas A. Christakis, Sterling Professor of Social & Natural Science at Yale University, took to Twitter yesterday to explain how China has managed to rapidly de-escalate the threat of COVID-19 within its borders. 

Christakis argues that China's unique collectivist culture, and authoritarian government, have allowed it to combat the disease quickly and efficiently. 

 'It [China] is well suited to fight a pandemic, if it indeed takes in factual information and responds rationally,' Christiakis tweeted.
