United States President Donald Trump on Tuesday alleged that China and the World Health Organization had misguided the world about the coronavirus pandemic in its early stages, by claiming that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission of the disease and people without symptoms could not spread it.
Trump called on the United Nations to hold China accountable for “unleashing the plague” onto the world.
“The Chinese government and the World Health Organization, which is virtually controlled by China, falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission [of of the coronavirus],” Trump said during his speech at the 75th session of the United Nations General Assembly. “Later they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease. UN must hold China accountable for their actions.”
