The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) recently started a new wave of claiming the U.S. was the origin of the coronavirus.
This was not the first time that the CCP made such an attempt. The last wave was initiated when the Spokesperson for China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Zhao Lijian, claimed that American soldiers brought it to Wuhan. President Trump and other U.S. officials seriously and furiously rejected China’s blame. Then the CCP was quiet for a while.
On April 26, Xinhua published an International Commentary:
“The recent report from the Public Health Department of Santa Clara County in California showed that people there died from the novel coronavirus as early as February 6. That was more than 20 days earlier than the first coronavirus death that the U.S. announced publicly. Since that patient didn’t travel to other countries, this discovery means that the infection in that society might have already taken place in early or mid-January.
“On March 11, Robert Redfield, Director of the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), admitted at a Congressional hearing that there were cases of deaths from the novel coronavirus being mistaken for deaths from influenza.
“In fact, a clear picture of the timeline of the coronavirus outbreaks in the U.S. has always been missing. The California report shows that the U.S. might have had infections in society as early as January, but that could just be the tip of the iceberg. California Governor Newsom has announced an autopsy would be conducted on deaths since last December that were suspected of being caused by the novel coronavirus. People are waiting to see what new findings this may lead to.”
