【禁聞】中共消極援助埃博拉 原因何在?

FacebookPrintFont Size簡體

【新唐人2014年10月24日訊】今年2月西非爆發的埃博拉疫情持續蔓延,至今已造成將近5000人死亡。日前,英國《每日電訊報》一篇文章指出,聯合國的一個機構在繼續指責富裕國家沒有全力對抗埃博拉病毒的同時,也抨擊中共當局沒有給予這項對抗足夠的援助。那麼,中共為何消極援助埃博拉呢?請看報導。

英國《每日電訊報》22號刊登一篇文章說,聯合國「世界糧食計劃署」(The World Food Programme,WFP)的官員,對中共和中國「一夜暴富」的億萬富翁,在西非爆發埃博拉後的反應,公開表示不滿。

文章引述「世界糧食計劃署」在中國的代表的話說,現在是中國的億萬富翁展現他們巨大影響力的時刻,但是這些富翁們卻一點表示也沒有。

文章指出,中共是非洲的主要投資者,中共知道,可以通過大型商業項目來擴大自己在非洲的影響力,但無論是中共當局還是私營部門,對於運用自己的經濟實力,來支持非洲抗擊埃博拉,反應卻相對遲緩。

到目前為止,中共當局只向聯合國最主要的「埃博拉援助基金」(Ebola relief fund)捐獻了大約830萬美元,而英國的捐款是1880萬美元,美國則多達2億美元。

文章說,北京當局曾經承諾,將再向聯合國這一基金捐出3400萬美元,但是這筆錢至今尚未支付。

在聯合國人道事務協調辦公室(Office the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs)的援助資金中,現在美國的捐款佔了三分之一,但中共的捐款還不到百分之二。

中國社會問題研究人士張健:「中國在世界發生了一些大的災難的時候,它所扮演的角色是無足輕重的,它所付出的也是杯水車薪的,但是對於共產國家以及極權專政的國家,它是非常慷慨的,比如北韓、當年的紅色高棉,它都輸出了大量的金錢,因為中國所有的援助建立在支持它獨裁政權的基礎上,而不是真正為人民福祉的基礎上去進行援助。」

世界衛生組織WHO緊急委員會,22號在日內瓦舉行會議,討論埃博拉疫情。世衛組織表示,埃博拉疫情至今已造成至少4877人死亡,而截至10月19號,已有9936例有記錄的感染病例。

世衛組織說,遭埃博拉疫情打擊最嚴重的三個國家:利比里亞、塞拉利昂和幾內亞,仍嚴重缺乏病床,以及外國醫療團隊的支援幫助。

報導說,對於聯合國籌集對抗埃博拉資金的進度,美國總統歐巴馬已多次表達無奈,一個多星期來,他一直在打電話,試圖說服各國領導人,希望能籌集更多的捐款。

時政評論員伍凡:「埃博拉發展非常非常快,想像不到的快,還會擴大,如果世界各國不去投入人物、物力、資本,那這個就是人類的災難,現在投入最積極的是美國,美國派出軍隊、醫生,也投資了兩億多美金,聯合國要準備籌集10億美金,美國已經投入將近三分之一了,可中國連一千萬都不到,可是它在非洲投入幾百億美金。救人的事情,它一點不關心,它講賺錢,這就是共產黨。」

時政評論員伍凡分析認為,中共不積極援助的一個原因,可能是想利用這個事情來削弱歐洲,削弱美國,而讓自己可以獨大起來。

伍凡:「它抱著這麼個心態,希望美國的麻煩多多,可是美國認為這是一個世界人類的事情。中國賺了那麼多錢,這些富豪們,錢都留給子孫,中國政府也是如此。所以現在聯合國批評他們,可是這批人,皮很厚啊,你再批評他們都無所謂,他們沒有想要救人類的概念,只想自己發財。」

相對於中國富豪的冷漠,美國富豪如何呢?據《每日電訊報》9月11號報導,比爾及梅琳達•蓋茨基金會9月10號宣佈,將在之前捐贈的1000萬美元的基礎上,再捐5000萬美元,以支持西非對抗埃博拉。基金會表示,這筆錢將由聯合國、世界衛生組織、美國疾病防控中心、以及對抗埃博拉的其他國際組織支配。

United Nations Dissatisfied With CCP’s Response to Ebola

In February of this year, Ebola broke out in West Africa
and continued to spread.
So far it has resulted in nearly 5,000 deaths.

Recently, an article in Britain’s Daily Telegraph says that
an agency of the United Nations continues to accuse
wealthy countries of not making full efforts to fight
against the Ebola virus.
It also criticizes Chinese authorities for failing to give
adequate assistance in this matter.

On Oct. 22, British Daily Telegraph published an article
stating that an official from the United Nations’ World Food
Program (WFP), publicly expressed dissatisfaction with the
Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and China’s billionaires
response to the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa.

The article quoted the words of WFP’s China correspondent
who said now it is a moment for China’s billionaires
to demonstrate their enormous influence,
but these millionaires have none.

The article says the CCP is a major investor in Africa.

The CCP knows they can expand their influence in Africa with
large commercial projects, but both the Chinese authorities
and private enterprises of China made a relatively slow
response to supporting the African’s fight against Ebola
by exerting their economic strength.

So far, the Chinese authorities only contributed
approximately $8.3 million to the UN’s Ebola Relief Fund,
while the UK contributed $18.8 million
and the United States as much as $200 million.

Chinese social problems researcher Mr Zhang Jian:
“When a major disaster takes place in the world,
China plays an insignificant role and contributes a little.

But for those countries which are also totalitarian
communist regimes or dictatorships, China is very generous,
such as North Korea, and the Khmer Rouge, who
at that time all received a lot of assistance from China.
All the assistance offered by China builds on the basis
of its supporting the dictatorship rather than really
on the basis of pursing welfare for the people."

The article says that the Beijing authorities have promised
to donate $34 million to this UN fund.
But until now the money has not been paid.

Of all the aid donation sources of the United Nations’ Office
for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs,
the US now accounts for a third,
but the CCP donated less than two percent.

The report says United States President Barack Obama
has repeatedly expressed his frustration
over the United Nations progress
to raise funds against Ebola.
For more than a week, he has been on the phone trying
to convince world leaders, hoping to raise more donations.

The World Health Organization (WHO) emergency
committee held a meeting in Geneva on Oct. 22 to discuss
the Ebola outbreak.

WHO says Ebola has so far killed at least 4,877 people.

Up until Oct. 19, 9,936 cases have been recorded
as infection cases.

WHO says the Ebola outbreak hit hardest
in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.
There is still a severe shortage of beds,
as well as support to help foreign medical teams.

Political affairs commentator Mr Wu Fan:
“Ebola spread very very fast, at an unimaginably fast speed
and will further expand.

If the world does not invest human resources and capital,
this will be a human disaster.
The most active investor is the U.S. which sent troops
and doctors, and has invested more than $200 million.
The United Nations will prepare to raise one billion dollars.

The United States has invested nearly a third,
but China contributed less than ten million.
China invests tens of billions of dollars in Africa,
but does not care about rescuing people.
It only cares about making money.
This is the Communist Party."

Wu Fan believes one reason that the Chinese Communists
do not actively offer aid may be that they want to take
this opportunity to weaken Europe and the United States,
and strengthen themselves.

Wu Fan: “It’s holding such a state of mind—
hoping trouble for the United States.
China earned so much money.

These billionaires left money to descendants,
and the Chinese government is the same.
So now the United Nations criticize them,
but these people are very audacious.
They do not care about your criticism.

They do not have the concept of rescuing other people,
just their own fortune."

Compared to the indifference of Chinese millionaires,
what did America’s wealthiest do?
According to a Daily Telegraph report on Sept. 11,
the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced on Sept. 10
that the foundation donated $50 million to support
West Africa against Ebola.
They had previously donated $10 million.

The Foundation said the money will be governed
by the UN, WHO, the United States Center
for Disease Control, as well as
other international organizations against Ebola.
