China At The Centre Of Blame For Coronavirus!
Very recently, Donald Trump, the President of America, called the New Coronavirus as:
“Kung flu”. Donald Trump said that Coronavirus! Was a disease that has a number of names, in fact, more names than any other disease that has been seen in the history of the world.
Donald Trump said:
“I can name – Kung flu. I can name 19 different versions of names. Many call it a virus, which it is. Many call it a flu. What difference. I think we have 19 or 20 versions of the name.”
Due to the origins of the Coronavirus pandemic, officials of the Trump administration have called COVID-19, the Wuhan virus.
Angela Stanzel, expert on China, German Institute for International and Security Affairs states:
“The mistrust of China has accelerated so quickly with the virus that no ministry knows how to deal with it.”
And according to a report that has been released by the European Union (EU), China, as well as Russia have been accused of spreading information online that is misleading and also false, with regards to the Novel Coronavirus.
Vera Jourova, Vice President, European Commission, stated:
“It would be too dangerous not to act.”
She added that the pandemic “showed us that false information could do serious harm, could kill citizens even and could undermine the public authorities’ response and therefore also weaken the measures taken.”
The European Commission report said:
“Given the novelty of the virus, gaps in knowledge have proven to be an ideal breeding ground for false or misleading narratives to spread.”
The Hudson Institute, in a report titled ‘Global Survey of US-China Competition in the Coronavirus Era’, states:
“As the coronavirus pandemic slows economic growth in the region, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and other South Asian countries caught in China’s debt-trap diplomacy will see their dependency deepen in the coming months, while India’s historic wariness of Beijing continues to deepen.”
There were 83,449 cases and 4,634 deaths in China, at the time of writing this, due to Coronavirus!
