Top U.S. diplomat speaks of 'Wuhan virus' despite China's protests


Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian, asked in a briefing this week about the terms “Wuhan virus” or “China virus,” said it was “highly irresponsible” for media to use them. […] “By calling it ‘China virus’ and thus suggesting its origin without any supporting facts or evidence, some media clearly want China to take the blame and their ulterior motives are laid bare. The epidemic is a global challenge,” he said.

Zhao insisted that no conclusion has been made on whether the virus originated in China.
