Washington: U.S. President “Donald Trump,” said China could have been alert and quickly stopped the coronavirus before getting spread globally, and his administration was seriously examining the real fact into what happened.
Trump criticized China’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak, which emerged late last year in the Chinese city of Wuhan, and the pandemic has grown globally.
“ We’re doing severe investigations… We are not happy with China, “ Trump said at a White House briefing. “ There are a lot of pf ways you can hold them accountable.
“ We believe it could have been stopped at the source. It could have been stopped quickly, and it wouldn’t have spread all over the world.”
U.S Secretay of State “Mike Pompeo” said the United States “ strongly believed” Beijing failed to report the outbreak promptly and covered up how dangerous the respiratory illness caused by the virus was.
“ Attempts to shift the blame on China will not denigrate China’s efforts in responding to the virus,” Geng said.
Earlier on Monday, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro blamed China for sending more mediocre quality and forged coronavirus antibody testing kits to the United States and an untrustworthy act amid the pandemic.
“Gen Shuang” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman reported in Beijing that some U.S. politicians were lying to deflect attention from there incapability to deal with the pandemic situation did not specifically mention Trump or Pompeo.
About Navarro’s comments, Geng said that the White House adviser was a habitual liar with no credibility.
