·1-min read

18 Mar – After previously stating that China should not be coddled by changing the name Wuhan Coronavirus to COVID-19, Anthony Wong is enraged yet again after the CCP's current deputy director of Foreign Ministry Information Department Zhao Lijian asserted that the US army may have something to do with the outbreak.

As reported on Epoch Times, Zhao recently took to Twitter to peddle these conspiracy theories in a series of tweets, saying, "CDC was caught on the spot. When did patient zero begin in US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals?"

"It might be the US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation!" he added.

In response to the tweet, Anthony took to social media and blasted Zhao with a sarcastic post, writing, "The (virus) may come from the United States, the United States should be transparent, the United States owes us an apology (explanation); it may also be from Japan, Japan should be transparent, Japan owe us an apology (explanation); it may also come from Germany, Germany should be transparent, Germany owes us an apology (explanation)."

"(Virus) cannot come from China, China (CCP) should not be transparent, China (CCP) will not apologise (explain)," he added.

In a previous post, Anthony slammed the decision by World Health Organisation (WHO) to change the name Wuhan Coronavirus to COVID-19 to avoid stigmatisation.

The actor stated that since the virus came from Wuhan, it should be known by the place it came from, and questioned why the country should get a special treatment for causing a pandemic when other ailments are named after other countries.
