China suspects U.S. athletes of bringing coronavirus into the country
Athletes from the United States who participated in the 2019 Wuhan Military Games could have brought coronavirus to China. Chinese media suspected them of this: a publication with suspicions of bringing the infection into the country was published by CCTV News.
The Chinese authors recalled that five American military players got sick during the games. They exhibited symptoms of an infectious disease: fever, cough, and diarrhea, among others. The initial diagnosis they were given at the local infectious diseases hospital after hospitalization was malaria.
As the publication notes, malaria could have been treated in China вЂ” but the patients were sent on a special plane to the United States. Just two days after their departure, the rest of the American participants left as well. And no reports, according to the Chinese, were published by the US side вЂ” giving rise to suspicions about a new type of coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2.
Earlier in August, Yang Zhanqiu, a virologist at Wuhan University, accused the US of hiding data on the first cases of the coronavirus: this, he said, gives grounds to suspect the American, not Chinese, the origin of SARS-CoV-2.
