"CHINA ACKNOWLEDGES DESTROYING EARLY CORONAVIRUS SAMPLES, CONFIRMING U.S. ACCUSATION

BY TOM O'CONNOR ON 5/15/20 AT 5:18 PM EDT

China has acknowledged it destroyed some samples of the novel coronavirus in the early stages of the outbreak, but challenged U.S. allegations that this was conducted as part of a cover-up.

Liu Dengfeng, a supervisor at the science and education division of China's National Health Commission, said at a news conference Friday in Beijing that the Chinese government issued an order on January 3 to dispose of novel coronavirus samples at certain facilities not qualified to handle such highly infectious diseases as a measure to "prevent the risk to laboratory biological safety and prevent secondary disasters caused by unidentified pathogens."

The move came after the novel coronavirus, known now officially as SARS-CoV-2, was classified as Class II or "highly pathogenic" based on research and expert recommendations, Liu said. This decision necessitated "clear requirements on the collection, transportation, experimental use and destruction of the pathogen" in order to avoid a potential mishap or leakage, he said.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has argued since last month that the January 3 order was an attempt to cover up the extent of the outbreak. He has accused China of censoring research regarding the coronavirus and of attempting to influence international efforts to battle the illness.

"The Chinese Communist Party tried to suppress information about this virus, about where it began, about how it started, about how it was being transmitted from human to human, indeed employed the World Health Organization to further that storyline," Pompeo told Christian radio program Focus on the Family on Monday.

Nice to know and thanks for sharing. Question is, will China pay for its role in letting Coronachan spread throughout the world? Personally, I highly doubt our country has the balls to do anything to China.

I really believe that once this mess is controlled, China will pay a price for all the deaths they have caused. You will see the free world buying products from other countries, and more products being made in America.
