China has dismissed coronavirus cover-up allegations and has labelled it as “pure fabrication”
The communist nation has on Sunday rejected accusations that it concealed information about the coronavirus outbreak, saying in a newly published white paper that it has acted transparently and informed the world of developments in a timely manner.
Xu Lin, head of State Council Information Office, labelled the accusations as completely “disrespectful and unreasonable”
He disclosed this during a briefing in Beijing on Sunday.
The response is not a war of words but an effort to restore the truth.
We have no interest in this so-called information in the battle against covid-19 but we must respond when facing threats against China, Xu Lin added.
China also says that if it is able to develop a vaccine, it will make it available to the world.
This is exactly one month since after the U.S. president Donald Trump made a bold claim that he has strong evidence that coronavirus was invented from Wuhan Institute of Virology.
With the number of Coronavirus fatalities almost four hundred thousand deaths globally as of Sunday 7th june, the COVID-19 pandemic has become a point of tension in China’s relationship with a number of countries, most notably America.
Worldwide, at least 6.9 million people have been infected by the virus, according to Johns Hopkins University, whose aggregated tally has become the main worldwide reference for monitoring the disease. Its running counter says United States leads the world with nearly 110,000 confirmed virus-related deaths. Europe as a whole has recorded more than 175,000 since the virus emerged in China late last year.
