Coronavirus Neither Created Nor Intentionally Transmitted, Says China

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2020-03-26

China on Wednesday said that it has neither created the coronavirus nor intentionally transmitted it and that usage of terms like "Chinese virus" or "Wuhan virus" is wrong.


Ji Rong, spokesperson for the Chinese Embassy in India, said the international community should focus on China's "swift response" to the pandemic rather than "stereotyping the Chinese people".


Elaborating on the cooperation between India and China in efforts to fight the disease, Mr Rong said both countries have maintained communication and have lent support to each other in coping with the pandemic through difficult times.


He said the Indian side has provided medical supplies to China and supported its fight against the contagion in various ways.


"We express appreciation and thanks for that," he added.


Talking about the WHO claims on slow response from China and Wuhan during the spread of the virus, the spokesperson stated: "Those people who are trying to stigmatise China’s efforts have ignored the huge sacrifices the Chinese people made in safeguarding the health and safety of all mankind."


The US President Donald Trump has been calling it ‘a Chinese virus’ at all his press conferences and official statements ever since the pandemic broke out more than two months ago.


Meanwhile, he has claimed that it is true that the first case of coronavirus was reported in Wuhan but this does not establishes that it was originated in China.
