China benefits from the coronavirus situation by exporting low-quality tests for antibodies to COVID-19. This was announced on Fox News by Peter Navarro, White House Economic Advisor.
“There are a lot of tests for low-quality antibodies coming from China now that give false results and the like,” he said (quoted by Reuters).
Navarro said the PRC had hidden an outbreak of coronavirus for six weeks, and accused China of spreading the infection. According to him, Beijing could limit the outbreak of the virus to Wuhan, but he did not. The White House adviser noted that as a result, hundreds of Chinese flew to Milan, New York and other cities.
In early April, Bloomberg wrote, citing sources, that China deliberately concealed the scale of the outbreak of coronavirus in the country, underestimating the number of infections and mortality. This conclusion was made by American intelligence services, the agency reported.
