World Health Organization chief says agency has $1.3 billion funding gap for coronavirus response

World Health Organization chief says agency has $1.3 billion funding gap for coronavirus response”

When Mr. Trump was asked whether he had seen anything to indicate this, he said "yes, I have". It could have been stopped at the source.

But the world has changed since Trump launched the trade war in the spring of 2018, disrupting the world's largest and most important economic relationship.

Ms Ortagus told The Straits Times over the phone: "The US government can not say with certainty where this virus emanated from, whether it was in a wet market or in a lab".

There's evidence that it came from somewhere in the vicinity of the lab, but that could be wrong. It should be noted that over the past few weeks, Pompeo has been claiming that the deadly Coronavirus originated in a lab located in Wuhan city where the outbreak was first detected last December.

Since about a week ago, United States officials, including Mr Pompeo and Deputy National Security Adviser Matt Pottinger, have been explicitly distinguishing between the CCP and the Chinese people.

Chinese officials tried to hide the emergence of COVID-19 late past year, including by arresting doctors who alerted the public to the epidemic.

"But instead, China covered up the outbreak in Wuhan".

Pompeo said that the U.S. doesn't trust the data coming from China with respect to coronavirus. But China's foreign ministry insisted it could only appear in the paper if a reference to the coronavirus originating in China was removed.

Still, with the Chinese economy in the doldrums, China will be hard-pressed to increase its purchases of USA goods, which could put pressure on Trump to act. "So if the USA continues to push down this front, what's most likely is an isolated US, not an isolated China", Kennedy told reporters during a teleconference on Thursday.

"He's undermining the potential for an effort with like-minded countries to work together on critical areas, denying China access to advanced military technology", said Bonnie Glaser, an expert on China at the Center for Strategic and International Studies think-tank in Washington. But its overall imports of other US goods have fallen short of the administration's initial hopes, as the coronavirus pandemic has hurt Chinese consumer spending and investment.

Over the past four years, tariffs have been a significant focus for Trump, who has promised to resurrect US manufacturing by slapping steep tariffs on foreign competitors, particularly China.

China and the USA have not completely resolved all their trade disputes despite the phase-one pact. "They get United States dollars 38 million from China", Trump said.

"Because American businesses don't want to do that, and America's trading allies don't want to do that".

In Wuhan, medical workers have tried their best to treat all people, including a 108-year-old and a 30-hour baby, the nurse said. "It's insane the US government hasn't done anything".
