China blames US for coronavirus pandemic

China’s Foreign Ministry has implied that the U.S. Army “might be” responsible for taking the coronavirus to Wuhan, the Chinese city where the outbreak first emerged late last year.

In a tweet on Thursday, 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?” Zhao went on to allege that it “might be [the] US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan.”

“Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation,” he wrote.

Days earlier, China’s ambassador to South Africa had claimed that: “Although the epidemic first broke out in China, it did not necessarily mean that the virus originated from China, let alone ‘made in China,” he tweeted.

The coronavirus outbreak has claimed at least 4,700 lives around the globe, according to Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering.
