The coronavirus strain COVID-19 has quickly amassed into a global pandemic.
The virus originated in Wuhan, China, and spread around the country at a rapid rate.
And China has a lot to answer for after this bombshell coronavirus accusation.
The deadly coronavirus strain COVID-19 has spread globally at an alarming rate.
The virus originated in Wuhan, China, where patient zero was thought to have eaten contaminated meat from a “wet market,” where a virus had jumped from animal to animal and mutated until it finally infected humans.
But now, the Chinese government is telling their version of how these events panned out, and they’re pointing fingers at America.
Fox News reports:
China’s Foreign Ministry on Thursday implied that the U.S. Army “might be” be responsible for bringing the coronavirus to Wuhan, the Chinese city where the outbreak first emerged late last year.
Tweeting in English, foreign ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian wrote: “When did patient zero begin in US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals?”

And now, the State Department has summoned the Chinese ambassador to answer for these horrendous threats.
The State Department on Friday summoned the Chinese ambassador after a spokesperson with China’s foreign ministry suggested the U.S. military might have brought coronavirus to Wuhan — where the outbreak first emerged last year.
A senior State official told Fox News that Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs David Stilwell called in Chinese Ambassador Cui Tiankai over China’s “blatant, global” disinformation campaign on the novel coronavirus.

It seems as if China is trying to downplay the damage that they have caused on a global scale.
Reportedly, the Chinese ambassador to South Africa was heard downplaying or even downright denying China’s role in originating this virus.
The remarks come as part of a massive public relations campaign from the Chinese to convince the world that the United States bears the blame for the coronavirus outbreak, which has claimed roughly 5,000 lives around the globe.
China refuses to take responsibility for the deadly disease that has originated out of its country.
They would rather blame the United States for the development of this disease.
But the world knows that that is untrue. They have watched America’s response to this virus and watched its leaders keep the people of this country safe and informed.
