Foreign ministers representing seven major industrialised nations failed to agree on a joint statement on Wednesday after the Trump administration insisted on referring to the coronavirus outbreak as the “Wuhan virus,” three officials from G7 countries told The Washington Post.
Other nations in the group of world powers rejected the term because they viewed it as needlessly divisive at a time when international cooperation is required to slow the global pandemic and deal with the scarcity of medical supplies, officials said.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has brushed off criticism of his use of the term, saying it’s important to point out that the virus came from the Chinese city of Wuhan and that China’s government had a special responsibility to warn the world about its dangers.
Until the CCP bought the WHO, it was tradition to declare pandemics when they were obviously out of control and to use geographic names to label them.
As well, the US did not start using this nomenclature until the CCP spread the evil misinformation that US soldiers had planted the virus in Wuhan.
It’s preposterous to describe calling the Wuhan flu the “Wuhan flu” as racist. It should not be a Western concern that the CCP does not want to be blamed for a virus it could have stopped but instead unleashed upon the entire world.
I don’t buy the allegations that the virus is man made but it’s clear that the CCP system prevented the early action that would have snuffed it out.
It’s 100% the “Wuhan flu” and we should all remember why.
