We are also a victim, not a perpetrator of COVID-19 - China




Common sentiments are brewing putting all the blame in China.

The coronavirus undoubtedly comes from Wuhan, China and it is now a global pandemic causing majority of the countries around the world into a health chaos.


The European Union as well as the United States of America has been registering record high deaths because of the novel coronavirus 2019 or COVID-19, and citizens of those countries all point to China as the one who is at fault.

“The virus is a common enemy to all mankind and may strike anytime, anywhere. Like other countries, China is also a victim, not a perpetrator, even less an accomplice of COVID-19,” Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang said during a regular press conference on April 20, 2020.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson said that since the outbreak of COVID-19, in an open, transparent and responsible spirit, China has taken the most comprehensive, rigorous and thorough measures to contain its spread and conduct international cooperation.
“In this process, China has made tremendous sacrifices, accumulated valuable experience, and made significant contributions to the global response. The international community bears witness to and applauds China’s efforts and progress,” he added.

“In the face of major public health crises and infectious diseases, the international community should stand in solidarity and work together, not resort to mutual accusation or demand retribution and accountability. As I recall, there has never been any precedence of the latter,” he noted.
“The US must understand that their enemy is the virus, not China. The international community can only defeat the virus by pulling together. Attacking and discrediting other countries will not save the time and lives lost. We hope that those on the US side will respect facts, science, and international consensus, stop attacking and blaming China for nothing, stop making irresponsible remarks, and focus instead on fighting the epidemic at home and promoting international cooperation,” the Chinese spokesperson added.
