The Chinese Wuhan coronavirus crisis that devastated the world’s economy and left countless Americans out of work, out of business or even out of life has incidentally produced more healthcare billionaires in China than any other country.
According to a report by Forbes, of the roughly 50 billionaires in the healthcare industry who “emerged” in 2020, “the majority live in China.”
“[C]hief among them is Hu Kun, the chairman of medical device manufacturer Contec Medical Systems, which went public on the Shenzhen stock exchange in August,” Forbes’ report notes.
“Contec’s shares have risen nearly 150% since the IPO on the back of strong overseas sales of products ranging from pulse oximeters to pulmonary devices used for checking lung conditions, all of which have become more necessary with the spread of Covid-19 throughout the globe.”
Then there’s Yuan Liping, a woman who lives in the Chinese city of Shenzhen yet is technically a Canadian citizen.
“Yuan owns 24% of one of China’s leading vaccine producers, Shenzhen Kangtai Biological Products, after her divorce from the company’s chairman (and fellow billionaire) Du Weimin in June,” Forbes notes.
The split reportedly made her “Canada’s richest woman,” despite the fact that she apparently doesn’t even live there.
Some of the newly minted billionaires are ethnically Chinese but operate their companies in the United States, including Hao Hong.
“Hong, currently a U.S. citizen, established Asymchem Laboratories in the Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, in 1995. Asymchem’s early success led Hong to return to China in 1998 to invest and grow his business,” Forbes notes.
He’s now worth an estimated $3.5 billion thanks to his company reportedly blowing up on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange.
The success of these Chinese entrepreneurs contrasts sharply with the hell that an increasing number of world citizens, including Americans, have experienced and continue to experience thanks to a virus that all the evidence suggests began in China.

Businesses have been driven into bankruptcy, families have been driven into begging for food from food pantries and some people have been driven to suicide.
All this has resulted partly from the virus itself but more-so from the authoritarian way in which some political leaders chose to respond to the virus.
By implementing lockdowns, some mayors and governors throughout the nation destroyed their constituents’ ability to earn any money. In some localities, including California, these restrictive, oppressive policies still remain in place.
Yet as Forbes’ report demonstrates, this suffering by the masses isn’t being experienced by the elites, be it the “journalists” who were able to continue working despite lockdowns, to pharmaceutical executives like the Chinese billionaires listed above.
The dichotomy has provoked interesting theories like the one below that members of the media would no doubt likely label a “conspiracy theory”:

This theory is rooted in concerns over the so-called “Great Reset,” a plan by global elites to reset the world economy so as to ostensibly make civilization on Earth more sustainable vis-a-vis climate change. However, some people like Sky News Australia host Rowan Dean believe the “Great Reset” is rooted in something more sinister.
Dean has claimed “the plan intends to use the ‘tools of oppression’ implemented during the pandemic, such as lockdowns and forced business closures as well as other measures destroying private property rights, to combat the coronavirus to achieve climate outcomes,” as reported by Sky News Australia earlier this month.
He’s called the plan “Orwellian” and warned people against dismissing him as “crazy old Rowan with his conspiracy theories.”
“This garbage is already deeply embedded into our state and federal governments,” he reportedly said.
The similar idea that it appears Playboy Playmate Jessica Vaugn was getting at in her tweet is that she believes the results of the coronavirus pandemic have been purposeful.
She’s not saying that the coronavirus was manufactured, let alone on purpose, but rather that the “elites” (political leaders, media figures, pharmaceutical executives) engineered the response to the virus so that it would induce the results they desired, i.e., it would set the stage for a “Great Reset” and also line their pockets.
Of course, this is just a theory, though there’s no denying that those with power and control have benefited mightily from the coronavirus, from political leaders like New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democrat, to corporations like Walmart and Amazon.
After effectively driving people out of New York City with his uber-draconian lockdown policies, de Blasio announced plans to purchase some of the very buildings he’d emptied out and use them to enact his political agenda.
Meanwhile, Walmart and Amazon have enjoyed a windfall of profits, all as their small business counterparts have struggled just to stay afloat.
