Moulton Calls On China To Accept Coronavirus Blame

For days, President Trump had been referring to the virus as the "Chinese virus", despite warnings from public health experts that such designations after geographic locations or groups of people are inaccurate and inappropriate. Meanwhile, the White House is reportedly launching a communications plan across multiple federal agencies that focus on accusing China of orchestrating a cover-up and creating a global pandemic. I wish they would have told us three months sooner.

President Donald Trump said he'll stop using the term "Chinese virus", a sign that the US and China want to deescalate their blame game over the pandemic, though his top diplomat kept up accusations that Beijing is waging a misinformation campaign about its origin. "Their unbelievable folks, in addition to the distributing of the Virus, isn't their fault at all, shape, or form", Trump tweeted before his daily White House Press conference.

CNN previously reported that a prominent Chinese official has promoted a conspiracy theory that the U.S. military could have introduced the new coronavirus into China - and it is not from the Chinese city of Wuhan.

"It comes from China", Trump had said.

At the same time, Trump and his administration have angrily rejected attempts by some Chinese officials to blame the virus on the U.S. military.

China hopes some individuals in the United States can listen to the rational voices of the world and at home and stop making wrong remarks that stigmatize China, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang said Tuesday. "It comes from China".

Asian American activists have reported a spike in bias incidents since the epidemic erupted, including a woman who was followed and beaten on the NY subway.

He also denied last week that "Chinese virus" or "China virus" was a racist term to use. "I want to be accurate".

In the past few weeks, there have been reports of race-related hate crimes targeting the Asian community due to the coronavirus outbreak, associating blame with that community.
