Washington is investigating the sources of the spread of the coronavirus to bring to justice those responsible.
Us leader Donald trump confirmed that he may raise duties on imports from China as one of the measures to compensate for losses caused by the spread of the coronavirus, Interfax writes on May 2.
When asked whether import tariffs on goods from China will be raised, trump said that “this is, of course, an option.” He also noted that he is “clearly dissatisfied” with the current situation and how it is related to China.
Yesterday, Secretary of state Mike again said that Washington is investigating the sources of the spread of the coronavirus to bring to justice those responsible.
“We are continuing our investigation and will find out exactly what happened. I am sure that the whole world wants to get an answer to this question, because it has the right to know what happened, and, ultimately, to bring to justice those people or that country that caused harm to the world,” the diplomat said.
He recalled that some American states have already filed lawsuits against China, accusing it of spreading the infection.
The day before, our national Intelligence service announced that SARS-CoV-2 is of natural origin and was not genetically modified.
Despite this, trump later again stated that the coronavirus was created in a laboratory in Wuhan.
