Donald Trump accuses China of 'secrecy, cover-up' for Covid-19 spreading





China must be kept completely responsible for its "secrecy, deceit and cover-up" that has helped it to spread coronavirus around the world, U.S. President Donald Trump said, trying to up Beijing's tempo over its management of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Speaking to the nation for the second time on Saturday's 244th Independence Day, President Trump celebrated the country's "success" toward the Covid-19 disease following a national increase in the number of cases of coronavirus.

He said in his speech from the White House lawns,
"We have the record of manufacturing ventilators. We have the most and the finest tests anywhere in the world. We produce gowns, masks, and surgical equipment in our country. It was made almost exclusively in foreign countries , in particular in China, where this virus and others came from ironically."

Trump has voiced concern in the past about China's treatment of the Covid-19 pandemic. He said in May that it was Beijing's "incompetence" that led to mass murder all over the globe.

China refuted US attempts to "cover up" the severity of its coronavirus outbreak and informed the US of seeking to distract public attention by asserting that the virus spread from a Wuhan virology lab.

The novel coronavirus that emerged in Wuhan in December of last year took more than five lakh lives and infected more than 11 million people worldwide. The US is the worst affected country with more than 1.2 lakh deaths and more than 2.8 million infections, according to data from Johns Hopkins University
