Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang in a recent press conference said that the US' attempt to belittle China’s endeavour for the prevention of infectious disease would not prove successful as he criticized the US State Secretary who described COVID-19 as "novel coronavirus of Wuhan".

Another Chinese foreign ministry spokesman stated that the US should make public its information about the epidemic and explain it, saying the US troops may spread the epidemic in Wuhan as he asked when did the US see its first case.

Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, also said that it is a great mistake to call COVID-19 "the epidemic of China".
