China Makes a Request on Covid-19 to S Jaishankar

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2020-03-25

Beijing has urged India not to use “China” to describe the novel coronavirus, saying it could stigmatise the country and would be detrimental to international cooperation.

 

During a phone conversation on Tuesday, state councilor and foreign minister Wang Yi told counterpart S Jaishankar that China hopes that India was “opposed” to the “narrow mindset” of using the phrase “China virus”.

 

The coronavirus outbreak, or the Covid-19 disease, first emerged from the central Chinese city of Wuhan in December. But the Chinese government has lately argued that it might have been found first in central China but there was no proof it originated there.
