Australia Accuses China Of Hiding Information About The Coronavirus

China has not been frank enough and is hiding some of the information regarding the origins and spread of the coronavirus, Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne said.

In an interview with ABC TV, she said that questions related to the coronavirus are a reason for an independent investigation.

US President Donald Trump said at a white house briefing on Sunday night that China should be held accountable if it turns out that it deliberately hid data about the COVID-19 coronavirus.

At the same time, Trump noted that if China just made a mistake, it is not so terrible.

In recent days, Trump has regularly said that China and VAZ may have hidden important data about the coronavirus that spread around the world from the Chinese city of Wuhan.

On April 17, the authorities of Wuhan specified the number of infected people and those who died during the epidemic. It turned out that the number of victims of coronavirus in the city is actually higher by 1,290 people and is 3,869. the number of cases of infection increased by 325 - to 50,333. In China, these updated data were explained by under-accounting.
