The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) published an article on Wednesday entitled "The Olympics Are Coming to China. So Is Omicron." It seemingly portrays a scenario where the Omicron variant is wreaking havoc in China. Throughout the article lies an ignoble wish that China surrender to the Omicron variant. However, China's effective measures won't turn ineffective under such a naïve smear. Neither will the US' ugly COVID-19 fight become lauded when China sees only a small scale of new infections. 

When the Delta variant raged around the world, China managed to put it under control in a short time. It will be a similar story for Omicron within China's borders. But how has the US performed? Even US Secretary of State Antony Blinken's anti-China trip was cut short because of US' inability to fight the virus effectively. 

The idea that China will successfully host the 2022 Winter Olympic Games, despite the Omicron virus, gnaws at the heart of some American elites. But the US, with "the most resilience" against the COVID-19, had better think about how to survive this most recent wave.
