US-China clash over UNGA for Covid, trade, human rights

US-China clash

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday blamed China for spreading the Covid-19 pandemic in the midst of a fierce rivalry with Beijing. He has requested the United Nations to hold China responsible for dropping the epidemic worldwide.

Addressing the United Nations’ first virtual meeting of global leaders, President Donald Trump accused the Chinese government and the World Health Organization of making false statements that it does not cause human-to-human infection of SARS-Cove-2. He also said that the World Health Organization is controlled virtually by China.

Addressing the 75th UN General Assembly session, President Trump said, “At the beginning of the Corona epidemic, China only prohibited domestic travel while continuing to operate international flights to infect the entire world.” The United Nations must hold China accountable in this matter. “

Responding to this harsh statement by US President Trump, Chinese President Xi Jinping said that China has no intention of fighting cold or hot war with any country. “Countries should not ask for unilateral and protectionism and work to ensure the stable and smooth operation of global industrial and supply chains,” he said.

It is noteworthy that since the beginning of the Corona epidemic, relations between the US and China have taken a rapid turn and Mr. Trump has consistently attacked China prominently over the Corona epidemic. So far, 3,12,45,797 people have been infected with Corona and 9,63,693 people have died.

The number of people infected with Corona in the US, considered the same global superpower, has reached 68,56,884 and 1,99,865 people have died so far. America is the most affected country in the world by Corona.
