American ambassador fuels China-US coronavirus feud

"We need to know what's going on in those areas of the country where there isn't an obvious outbreak", Fauci said at a White House briefing on Tuesday.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump said Beijing should have acted more quickly to warn the world after the outbreak of the disease there, labelling Covid-19 a "Chinese virus".

Chris Beyrer, a professor of epidemiology and global health at Johns Hopkins University, said Trump issued his order too late to make a difference because coronavirus infections were already reported in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and Toronto, as well as 26 other countries.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), whose state has become the country's epicenter of the crisis with almost 31,000 cases, said Wednesday that coronavirus may peak in New York on April 15 - three days after Trump is hoping to see "packed churches all over our country" for Easter service.

Trump wants to begin easing nationwide guidelines meant to stem the coronavirus outbreak.

As the crisis has worsened, Trump has repeatedly blamed what he calls "the Chinese virus", although this week he briefly stopped amid reports of racist attacks on Asian Americans.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom Woody Johnson has placed blame on China for the coronavirus pandemic devastation that is sweeping the world, saying the country "tried to suppress the news". He revived the term Thursday, however.

He added, "I think there is certainly a lot of talk that it's been very unfair". Trump said in a subsequent interview.

His device is called the CoVent and is specifically meant to support coronavirus patients. But he stressed that any design would need regulatory approval.

Under Ghebreyesus' leadership, the World Health Organization has been actively advancing global cooperation against the contagious illness and gained wide recognition from the worldwide community, Xi said.

McCaul, the ranking member on the House Foreign Relations Committee, said that "there were several red flags in his past with respect to his relationship with China". A paucity of testing is one of the problems.

"It (WHO) has been very, very much sided with China".

Trump has also overstated Democrats' response to the travel ban, accusing Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Joe Biden, the putative Democratic presidential nominee, of opposing it. "Based on cooperation & solidarity, China has committed to protecting its citizens & all people globally from the outbreak", he said in another tweet.

Subsequently, WHO sent a team of experts to Beijing, Guangzhou and the virus epicentre Wuhan.

"The nationalism it's stoked in China is awful", he added.

On 27 February, Zhong Nashan, a prize-winning epidemiologist who became famous for discovering the Sars coronavirus in 2003, remarked that "though the Covid-19 was first discovered in China, it does not mean that it originated in China".
