Chinese state media mocks US over coronavirus response – “It’s only a flu!”

Beijing and Washington are currently locked in a war of words with claiming to have seen evidence that the virus originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology. A Chinese state news presenter has previously linked the virus as having originated from US servicemen attending the World Military Games in Wuhan in October. In the video, a mask-wearing terracotta warrior appears before the Statue of Liberty: “We discovered a new virus.”

The Statue of Liberty replies: “So what?


“It's only a flu.”

As the warrior lists some of the devastating effects of the virus, the statue remains unmoved.

The statue then turns red and gets hooked up to an IV drip, so the warrior interjects: “Are you listening to yourselves?”

The statue replies: “We are always correct, even though we contradict ourselves.”

The warrior responds: “That's what I love about you Americans, your consistency.”

US President Donald said he could not divulge the evidence he claimed to have seen.

However, researchers throughout the scientific word have overwhelmingly dismissed the allegations the virus was man-made.
