- A Chinese Official claims US Army may have brought the deadly Coronavirus in China.
- Earlier investigations by Chines officials had linked the deadly Coronavirus to animals from Wuhan China.
- Zhao Lijia claims US intentionally injected Coronuvirus to patients who died in America as a cover up.
In a statement that has elicited mixed reactions across the world; a Chinese official has claimed that US army may have brought the deadly Coronavirus to China.
The claims came from a Chinese foreign minister by the name Zhao Lijia. He made the statement on Thursday, echoing similar conspiracy theories on Chinese social media that puts the US as the creator of the Pandemic.
The initial investigation had pointed out the origin of the deadly Coronavirus to a sea food market in Wuhan, but experts and officials in recent days have claimed that the virus may have originated elsewhere.
The assertion was much infuriated when the US officials termed the now pandemic virus as “Wuhan Virus”. This caused Beijing to hit back angrily at the US officials.
The claim has even turned more complicated after Zhao posted a video of the head of the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention testifying before Congress that some Americans, who were believed to have died from the flu, were intentionally diagnosed with the Covid-19 illness. He stated on his twitter account
“CDC was caught on the spot. When did patient zero begin in US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals?” Zhao tweeted.
“It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation!” he concluded
So far the Coronavirus has spread all over the continent with many countries confirming infection cases. Kenya becomes the 14th African country to report a positive coronavirus case. The others are Egypt, Algeria, South Africa, Senegal, Nigeria, Cameroon, Burkina Faso, Tunisia, Morocco, Ghana, Togo, Gabon and Ethiopia
