An adviser to the American President Donald Trump suggested on Sunday that China sent passengers from Chinese airlines to spread the coronavirus infection worldwide., a new onslaught by the Trump administration against Beijing's responsibilities in spreading the outbreak.
"The virus was generated in Wuhan province, patient zero was in November," said the White House trade adviser, Peter Navarro, in “This Week” of ABC. "The Chinese, protected by the World Health Organization, for two months hid the virus from the world and then sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese by plane to Milan, New York and around the world to spread it. "
"They could have kept it in Wuhan," Navarro said. Instead, it turned into a pandemic. So I say the Chinese did that to the Americans and that they are responsible. "
Milan and New York became epicenters of the pandemic. However, researchers at New York University determined last month that the explosion of Covid-19 cases in the New York City area resulted largely from infected patients who flew in from Europe, including the UK. , France, Austria and the Netherlands.
As the US points to China, the regime has launched its own campaign to reject Trump's claims that it concealed the outbreak., while raising questions about whether Wuhan was even the place where the virus made the first jump to humans.
"It got out of control"
On Thursday, Trump said that while he still suspects that the outbreak may be related to the Wuhan Virology Laboratory, the Chinese were unlikely to deliberately release the pathogen. "I think they are more likely to get out of control." said.
Navarro also dismissed the complaints offered by whistleblower Rick Bright, who had served as director of the Advanced Biomedical Research and Development Authority until the end of last month.
Questioned about this decision by the ABC chain, Navarro He pointed to "a bureaucracy out there" made up of people who "believe they were elected president rather than Donald J. Trump."
"And we have had big problems with ... some call it the 'Deep State', I think that is correct, so I do not regret the loss of people when they leave this bureaucracy"Navarro said. Trump and his allies frequently fire on an alleged “Deep State”, a force that would operate in the shadows within the federal government and to which they attribute the intention to harm the President.
"I do not mourn the loss of people when they leave this bureaucracy"Navarro said. "There will always be someone better to replace them, someone more loyal, not necessarily to the president, but to Trump's agenda. That's what's important. "
