On many occasions, President Trump had blamed China for the spread suggesting that the laboratory in Wuhan may have either accidentally or intentionally leaked the virus, and also criticized it by calling it a Chinese or Wuhan virus.
China completely denied the allegations and continues to reiterate that the pandemic had spread from outside their nation.
China is additionally seeking to reevaluate its reaction and the early history of the virus. Authorities and state media have on the other hand pushed speculations connecting coronavirus to the U.S. military, that the virus might have entered China via imported frozen food.
However, according to the Chinese FM, China has remained at the forefront of battling inaccurate information, disproving endeavors of politicization and derision.
A representative for the council stated a month ago that the WHO hoped its team of experts investigating the origin. China likewise leveled trade limitations on Australia after it required an autonomous probe concerning the coronavirus’s source.
