Video: “They spawned the virus, hid the virus, sent 100s of 1000s to seed it” – adviser fuels anti-Chinese racism to divert from Trump’s catastrophic handling of pandemic – SKWAWKBOX

Navarro launched into an astonishing diatribe in which he claimed the Chinese government had ‘spawned’ the coronavirus before hiding it – and then intentionally sending hundreds of thousands of infected Chinese citizens around the world to ‘seed’ other countries with it: Navarros may only be following his boss’s line but even aside from the risk of escalating tensions with China, his propaganda will fuel racist attacks around the world on people of Chinese ethnicity – attacks that had already increased massively because of anti-Chinese rhetoric of Trump and others:

Navarro’s claim is not only insanely dangerous, it flies in the face of the latest facts. The presence of the virus in France has been confirmed, at the very latest, in early December. It is believed to have been in Italy in November – and has been found in at least one Spanish waste-water sample dating from March 2019, months before it was recognised in China.
