Chinese Ambassador to the United Kingdom Liu Xiaoming has entered into a bitter feud with Sky News’s Mark Austin over the coronavirus. Austin wondered if China would admit that the world has less confidence in the Communist country because of its handling of the coronavirus crisis. Xiaoming insisted that there was no cover-up, and China released information to the World Health Organization as soon as possible.
Xiaoming also insisted that China was the victim of this crisis.
Later, Xiaoming broke out that Beijing had played a role in silencing scientists and biasing the data on the coronavirus.
He insisted that it was not fair to claim that the disease originated in China because it was a problem for scientists.

He said, “It is not correct to say that the virus originated in China, it is a matter of science.
“It’s up to scientists not you, me or the politicians. “
Austin said the important issue was that another global pandemic could not happen again.
He added a key element to ensure that this led to a thorough investigation into the origin of the virus.
The Chinese ambassador said that China has also been the victim of misinformation since the start of the crisis.
He said, “You can’t have this stigma, disinformation and smear campaign against China.
“Like some American politicians do. “
Austin interrupted to insist that China should immediately let the scientists investigate.
Xioming sighed and concluded by saying that there is no doubt that China is working with international scientists on the coronavirus.
