Speaking to the Global Times, Yang pointed out that the number of new Kovid-19 cases in Florida reached 18,000 per day, and said that local people complained that the administration was hiding data about the first virus carriers in the state.
Stating that this situation created suspicions that Kovid-19 cases emerged in Florida earlier than Wuhan, Yang said, “The USA may have covered up the early cases in the country in order to politicize the pandemic and defame China.”
The Chinese expert pointed out that data on 171 early cases in the USA were lost. However, it was reminded that the US press wrote that the first patients appeared in January and February of 2020. (SPUTNIK)
