I really wish the Chinese government wasn’t so oppressive. There’s so much they actually do right (of course there’s also an insane amount of things they do wrong). I’ve been super impressed with how they’ve handled this outbreak.

That is the reason why at least it is a bit understandable, yes. It's exactly what a Singaporese university professor on these diseases said yesterday: it's not that much more dangerous than the common flu, meaning it's not innocent but definitely not some killing monster. The question is how it'll develop.
