guānzhuàng bìngdú 官状病毒
Criticism of government incompetence in responding to the COVID-19 epidemic; homophonic play on "coronavirus" (guānzhuàng bìngdú 冠状病毒, swapping the character "crown" 冠 for "official" 官). For example, netizens fumed over the 2020 CCTV Spring Festival Gala, broadcast during the throes of Wuhan's lockdown, piqued especially when Jackie Chan sang, "Show me where China looks sick" (问我国家哪像染病). One netizen wrote, "...the bureaucravirus is spreading, the sick are pleading for help, doctors are sounding the alarm... and a pop star is asking where China looks sick?"
