The country's Foreign Ministry reacted in this way to Trump's next mention of the вЂњChinese virus.вЂќ
China said that the United States is now the real and largest source of coronavirus in the world. This was announced at a briefing on Thursday, December 10, by the spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Hua Chunying, in response to the mention by US President Donald Trump of the вЂњChinese virusвЂќ.
вЂњThe US accounts for 4.2% of the world's population, but the number of infections is 22.2% of all confirmed diagnoses in the world. For every million people in the US, there are nearly five times more deaths than in the rest of the world. Everyone can see that now The United States has become the real and largest вЂњsource of the virus,вЂќ Hua Chunying said at a briefing.
The Foreign Ministry spokeswoman also recalled that some studies indicate that the coronavirus was spreading in other countries even before it appeared in China.
вЂњWe advise American politicians to show respect for facts and science and stop engaging in political manipulation,вЂќ said a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman.
The day before, US President Donald Trump once again called the coronavirus вЂњthe Chinese virusвЂќ. He has done this on several occasions in the past, facing criticism from Beijing.
We will remind, on the eve of the United States recorded 3,243 deaths from the coronavirus COVID-19 per day, which is an absolute anti-record.
