MADRID, May 3 (EUROPE PRESS) –
The German Foreign Minister, Social Democrat Heiko Maas, has asked China to “clarify the origin” of the new corona virus.
“The whole world wants the exact origin of the virus to be clarified,” said Maas in an interview with the German media group Funke. China can show “how transparent it wants the virus to be,” he added.
The United States has openly questioned the origin of the corona virus and accused China of hiding information. The official version of Beijing states that the virus was spread to humans at a wildlife market in Wuhan City in the center of the country.
Other countries have joined Washington to demand greater transparency, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has also asked to be involved in the study of the origin of the coronavirus.
