Taiwan pro-separatist groups mocked for counting on 'crippled' US

The attempt to push for proposals related to Taiwan at the World Health Assembly by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in the island has once again failed. After the WHA announced it would not discuss the proposal, netizens from the Chinese mainland and the island of Taiwan mocked pro-independence forces in Taiwan for "betting on the wrong horse" as the US has been "crippled by its own failure to control the COVID-19 domestically" and most member states of the WHO stuck to the one-China principle.

More calls have also emerged, urging some Western countries like Australia to stop politicizing the issue and act in line with the global consensus.
