Lijian Zhao, spokesman of the MFA, suggested that the new type of coronavirus was introduced by the U.S. military in Wuhan, where its outbreak was recorded in late December last year. He wrote about this on Thursday on his Twitter page.
“When did the patient zero appear in the USA? How many people were infected? What hospitals were they in? Probably the U.S. military brought the epidemic to Wuhan! Be honest! The United States should explain everything to us!” said the official.
However, the representative of Chinese Foreign Ministry did not specify how the coronavirus came to Wuhan with the help of U.S. military.
A coronavirus outbreak was recorded in Central China by late December 2019. In early March this year, WHO confirmed that the disease was becoming an epidemic. It is known that in more than 100 countries, cases of infection were detected. According to WHO, the total number of infected more than 118.000 people. About 4.300 cases were fatal. In Russia, 34 cases of infection have been recorded.
