US President Donald Trump announced that there will be an investigation to find the true origin of the COVID-19 and faulted the official death figure in China.
WHO said they couldn’t get into China for COVID-19 cause investigations
China should be prepared for the consequences of coronavirus
Archive recorded footage has given further insight into the tests on bats carried out in Wuhan Lab China as a possible cause of coronavirus disease – now a pandemic that has infected not less than 3.2 million and caused the death of over 228,000 people globally
Lead researcher from the institute, Shi Zhengli, told journalists that the pathogen in the slide was different from the current coronavirus strand even though both are novel coronaviruses. Could these shreds of evidence refute the claim that the COVID-19 coronavirus disease originated from a Wuhan seafood market as the World Health Organisation (WHO) had suspected?
In the same development, conspiracy theorists have claimed the coronavirus may have been weaponized or caused by accident.
US President Donald Trump has announced the US will be initiating an investigation to find the true origin of the COVID-19. The US leads the rest of the world in coronavirus infection cases, having over one million cases of the deadly disease and not less than 58,200 deaths at the time of this report.
President Trump did not believe that China gave the true number of coronavirus deaths in the country. He has also criticized the WHO for their uninspiring attempts to investigate the cause of the disease in China, describing their efforts in that regard as very pathetic and weak.
President Trump also revealed that the US and other countries are looking at the Chinese coronavirus disease death claims to ascertain the validity of the reported official death figure.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) had said that they couldn’t get into China earlier this month.
