US President Donald Trump said he was very disappointed in China, and the topic of coronavirus was not discussed during the visit of the Chinese delegation to America in January.
вЂњI'm very disappointed in China,вЂќ Trump said in an interview with Fox Business. Commenting on the presenterвЂ™s words that the Chinese delegation didnвЂ™t say anything about the virus during the Chinese delegationвЂ™s visit to the US in January, Trump noted that COVID-19 вЂњwas not even a topic of discussion.вЂќ
The US authorities, including the president, regularly accuse China of the inability to restrain the spread of coronavirus, concealment of facts, and untimely reaction. Chinese authorities have repeatedly stated that from the very beginning they have maintained an open and responsible position regarding the publication of data on the epidemic of coronavirus infection.
The coronavirus pandemic began in China, but the United States remains the most affected country with the highest number of cases and deaths. Earlier, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested that the virus could вЂњescapeвЂќ from a laboratory in Wuhan, where they study coronaviruses. China denies the allegations.
