China has strongly criticized the United States for raising doubts about Beijing's reporting on the Corona virus through 'useless comments'.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hua Chunying confirmed at a press briefing that China had always taken a 'clear and transparent' attitude toward the outbreak, according to Reuters news agency.
He said that America should stop politics on health issues and instead focus on protecting its people.
It should be noted that US President Donald Trump said yesterday that the data provided by China regarding the Corona virus seems a little low.
In addition, his national security adviser said Washington had no way of knowing whether Beijing's statistics were accurate.
Trump said he did not receive intelligence reports on China's statistics, but added that the numbers are a little known.
The US president said on Friday that he had spoken to Chinese President Xi Jinping over the phone that China had dealt with the Corona virus outbreak but not so much.
Instead of criticizing Donald Trump after the call, he also said the US had "very good relations" with China and the two sides would want to maintain a multi-billion dollar trade deal earlier this year.
Robert O'Brien, Trump's national security adviser, told the same briefing that China was not in a position to confirm the figures presented.
He said there was a lot of public reporting on whether the numbers were too low.
In this regard, Robert O'Brien said, "You have access to the news coming from Chinese social media. We have no way of verifying any of these numbers."
Be clear: Beijing and Washington have been accusing each other of spreading the virus over the past few days.
The Chinese embassy in France on Friday called on the US President Donald Trump to declare Corona a "Chinese virus", saying the virus actually began in the United States.
The Chinese Embassy raised the question, "How many coronary artery disease cases were due to the flu that began in the United States in September last year?"
Earlier on Sunday, the US president said he was "slightly upset" with China.
"They should have told us about the virus," he added.
