This is pretty terrible coming from a Chinese official, considering it is well known that the Coronavirus originated in…China. But don’t expect Democrats to push back. They’d probably agree.
From Daily Caller:
A Chinese official suggested Thursday that U.S. officials introduced coronavirus into China’s Wuhan region as the virus makes its way to the West from the communist nation.
Lijian Zhao, deputy director of China’s Foreign Ministry Information Department, said, “When did Patient Zero appear in the United States? How many people are infected? What is the name of the hospital? It may be that the US military brought the epidemic to Wuhan. America needs to be transparent! The United States owes us an explanation!“

Democrats, now is your moment. Embrace Medicare-for-all. Embrace paid sick leave. Embrace universal child care. Coronavirus makes the case better than you ever could.
Do it. Help save the country. Reshape politics for a generation.

The Bureau of Prisons must have a plan to help prevent the spread of coronavirus to incarcerated individuals and staff.
