Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi outlined Beijing's version of the emergence of coronavirus pandemic, which is to deny that the city of Wuhan was the primary source of the spread of Covid-19. In particular, the head of the PRC Foreign Ministry stated this position in an interview with Xinhua Agency and China Central Television, published on the website of the Chinese Foreign Ministry.
“We were ahead of our time and were the first country to report cases to the world. More and more studies show that the pandemic was likely caused by isolated outbreaks in several places around the world. When China was struck by an unknown coronavirus, China took immediate action to conduct an epidemiological investigation, the identification of the pathogen and the publication of key information, including the sequencing of the genome of the virus. All this alarmed the whole world," said Wang Yi.
According to him, Beijing has introduced the most stringent measures to combat coronavirus and managed to quickly establish control over its spread, resuming economic and social activities in the country.
In addition, the Ьinister claims that it was his country that was one of the first to contribute to the creation of a strong global line of defense against the pandemic.
