  • United States army may have brought virus to Wuhan, Chinese official says

The United States has summoned China's ambassador after China's foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian tweeted his conspiracy theory.

"China is seeking to deflect criticism for its role in starting a global pandemic and not telling the world", a State Department official said.

Zhao with his statement was backing an existing conspiracy theory that has already been on Weibo that claims it must have spread through the 300 athletes from the U.S. military, who were in Wuhan in October to attend the 7th Military World Games. Had China been more cooperative and allowed foreign experts on the ground earlier, he said, "we could have dramatically curtailed what happened both in China and what is now happening across the world".

China, the hardest-hit country, has reported nearly 81,000 infections and almost 3,200 deaths. "With COVID-19 developing into a pandemic, the world should come together to fight it instead of leveling accusations and attacks against each other, which is not constructive at all".

The novel Coronavirus outbreak has caused alarm as it has crossed global fatalities in the 2002-03 SARS epidemic.
