THE China replied to that which he calls “24 lies” invented by American politicians, who accuse the country of having manipulated in the laboratory the new coronavirus.
The answer comes in a text of eleven thousand words shared on the page of the Chinese foreign minister on Saturday, CNN. The document assumes itself as a response to the “absurd allegations and lies” invented by American politicians and media who try “to blame China for not having an effective response” against the Covid-19.
“However, as Abraham Lincoln said, ‘it is possible to deceive some people all the time; it is also possible to deceive all people for some time; what is not possible is to deceive all people all the time’,” begins the text.
Among the various lies it tries to clarify, it can be read in the document that the fact that the first case was detected in Wuhan it does not mean that this virus originated there; it is alleged that China has taken all measures not to spread the virus, so it is wrong to accuse the country of spreading the disease worldwide; or even that bats are not part of the Chinese diet, so it cannot be said that the Chinese contracted the disease by eating this animal.
The Chinese government still refutes, once again, the theory that China created the virus in the laboratory, saying that “all the available evidence shows that the SARS–CoV-2 is of natural and non-human origin “.
The article is an attempt to refute China’s initial cover-up charges and late disclosure of information about the virus, offering a calendar to show the apparently “open, transparent and accountable” way adopted by the Chinese government in providing “timely information” to the world.
