The Chinese Ambassador To The US Denied The Alleged COVID-19 Origin

Chinese Ambassador to the United States, Cui Tian Kai, criticizes the US for ignoring scientific information to pursue "baseless allegations" about the origin of COVID-19.

Chinese ambassador to the US, Cui Qian, criticized the allegations that China caused the COVID-19 pandemic as "baseless" and caused people to lose focus on scientific information about the deadly pandemic. Reuters news reported.

On April 21, speaking on an online program of Bloomberg , Mr. Cui said:
 "What I'm worried about is lack of transparency, not in terms of science, not in terms of medical treatment, but in about some political developments - especially in the US ".
"Therefore, some politicians pay little attention to the scientific views when they are too busy with their efforts to smear and accuse others baselessly," continued Mr. Cui.
He also accused the media of being contributing to the rumors spreading faster. 

Also in the program, Mr. Cui denied Beijing concealing information about the disease. He affirmed that China always discloses information, especially through daily press conferences about the epidemic situation and telephone exchanges with the US and with the World Health Organization (WHO).
"We are trying our best to be transparent. We are investigating, we are gathering information. At the same time, we are sharing them," said Mr. Cui.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

This is the latest in a debate between Beijing and Washington over the origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (causing the COVID-19 epidemic) and the published Chinese disease data.
The US has accused the SARS-CoV-2 virus of being a product of a level 4 biosafety laboratory in Wuhan City (Hubei, China), where an outbreak of the disease occurred. China has consistently denied this allegation.

In response to Washington's allegations, some officials in Beijing think that the US military may have brought the germs to China. The US State Department convened Ambassador Cui and formally protested the allegations from Beijing.

The Washington administration continues to pursue the allegations, saying the US will conduct a thorough investigation and ask China for access to a level 4 biosafety laboratory in Wuhan.
The Wuhan Institute of Virology - the agency that administers the lab - has twice denied the allegations, one in February and one on April 18.

At the same time, the United States accuses China of incompletely announcing the deaths of COVID-19 and claims that WHO covers China. US President Donald Trump also announced cutting aid to WHO.

After appearing in China at the end of last year, COVID-19 has now spread to 210 countries and territories, infecting nearly 2,557,200 people and killing nearly 177,650 people, according to the statistics website Worldometer. 

The United States has the highest number of infections in the world. As of 10 am April 22 (Vietnam time), more than 819,150 people in the US have been infected and more than 45,340 have died.
Meanwhile, China has controlled the first wave of infection. The total number of COVID-19 infections in China is 82,788, including 4,632 deaths. It has been five consecutive days that China did not have more deaths from COVID-19.
