Ever since the coronavirus broke out in the country, President Trump was at the receiving end for the way his administration handled the crisis. He was accused of not being able to contain the spread of the virus & also for showing a soft corner to the Chinese government. Learning from his mistakes, President Trump made some of the disaster control statements. He called the novel coronavirus as a plague and said that he is unhappy with China, where the pandemic emerged in December 2019 in Wuhan. Speaking to the reporters, Trump said - “My administration spoke to them a long time ago going into Wuhan. We want to go in and see what’s going on in the capital of central China’s Hubei province. And were not exactly invited, I can tell you that.”
With Trump’s backing, the US administration launched an investigation to find whether the deadly virus escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China. However, China firmly rejected President Trump’s demand to allow an American team to investigate the origin of the virus. China claimed that it was also a “victim but not a culprit” of coronavirus. Responding to Trump’s earlier comments, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang explained a media briefing that - “the virus is the common enemy for every country and all humanity, we are no different. The virus may appear at any time at any place in the world. Like every other country, China is also attacked by the deadly virus. China is not a co-worker for this virus,” he said.
Geng further continued - “Ever since the virus broke out in China, we have been transparent and provided our valuable experience for the international community to deal with the spread.” Reminding about H1N1 influenza and HIV/AIDS both detected in the US around 2008 and 2009, Geng asked, “did anyone ask US accountability during the economic crisis?” He also outright rejected Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne’s call for an international inquiry into coronavirus origins.
