The Chinese foreign ministry has levelled allegation against the U.S. Army, accusing them of importing Coronavirus to Wuhan, China.
The COVID-19 which began in China in December has so far spread to more than 50 countries and has been declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization, WHO.
The foreign ministry spokesperson, Zhao Lijian, accused the US government of hiding the numbers of COVID-19 cases.
Zhao further stated that the US government has a lot of explanation on the dreaded virus and reveal its data to the public.
Zhao on his verified Twitter account wrote: “CDC was caught on the spot. When did patient zero begin in the US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals?”
“It might be the US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! The US owe us an explanation!”
