Donald Trump says China Could Face Consequences if found responsible for Coronavirus Pandemic
Donald Trump warned on Saturday that China could face consequences if it was “knowingly responsible” for the coronavirus pandemic.
He ratcheted up criticism of Beijing over its handling of the outbreak. “It could have been stopped in China before it started and it wasn’t, and the whole world is suffering because of it,” Trump told a daily White House briefing.
US President, who as expressed his disappointment over handling of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) by China, alleged non-transparency and initial non-cooperation with the US on this issue.
Donald Trump said his relationship with China was very good till the time the deadly COVID-19 swept the world.“The relationship was good when we were signing that, but then, all of a sudden, you hear about this. So, it’s a big difference.
Trump and senior aides have accused China of a lack of transparency after the coronavirus broke out late last year in its city of Wuhan. This week he suspended aid to the World Health Organization accusing it of being “China-centric.”
The United States, according to a chart displayed at the briefing, has more than 11.20 deaths per 100,000 people while France has had 27.90 and Spain 42.80.
