Coronavirus outbreak: US ‘disappointed’ by China’s response


We thought there was better transparency
coming out of China but it doesn’t appear to be. I know they revised their numbers up a bit.
They say it’s a different method of counting. We just don’t know.
It’s the great unknown. I wish we did know more because,
you know, this should not be about politics or, for that matter, trade. This is just plain, ordinary health,
public health, help people. The virus is contained
in the United States. We don’t know if it’s contained in China. We thought they were tailing off
in their headcount. It turns out that might not be the case. We are engaging with China,
the president’s engaging with president Xi, we have a very good trade deal
with them and so forth, but on this particular matter we are quite
disappointed in China’s response.
