Start to settle accounts, from the United States! Biden only realized that over 750,000 Chinese netizens really made a move
Today, the Biden administration has also imposed a guilty presumption against China on the issue of the traceability of the new crown virus, ignoring the China-WHO joint research report on the traceability of the new crown virus issued by the World Health Organization. "Through laboratory transmission, the WHO was pressured to launch a second round of "independent and transparent" traceability investigations into China, and representatives of Australia, Japan and the European Union also actively seconded it. As early as May 26, President Biden asked the US intelligence services to continue to collect information to investigate whether the new crown virus originated from an animal host infection or a laboratory accident, and required the report to be completed within 90 days. He also said that he would continue to cooperate with like-minded partners. Urged China to participate in a comprehensive, transparent, evidence-based international investigation.
In addition, Sullivan, the National Security Affairs Assistant to the President of the United States, also stated that if China does not cooperate on the source of the new crown virus, it will face the so-called "international isolation." However, the United States has frequently politicized the issue of the source of the new crown virus and pointed its finger at China. However, it has been evasive to China and Russia's calls for investigating Fort Detrick and more than 200 U.S. overseas biological experiment bases. However, China will not sit idly by and counterattack the US's slander.
According to a report by China Youth Network on July 19, at the regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China that day, reporters asked questions. In June this year, Chinese netizens issued an open letter calling on the WHO to investigate Fort Detrick Laboratory. . Until July 17, Chinese netizens once again issued an open letter and commissioned the Global Times to initiate a joint initiative, calling on the WHO to conduct experiments on Fort Detrick and other American viruses that also have potential leaks in the next stage of the traceability of the new crown virus.

In addition, the World Wide Web also launched an online poll on where to go for the next stage of virus traceability. At present, more than 90% of the interviewees believe that the next step should be to go to the United States to conduct traceability research. Zhao Lijian said that these spontaneous actions by the people and the media actually asked questions that the international community has not been able to answer for a long time, and some people in the United States have always kept secret. Please answer a few questions from the US: What is the relationship between Fort Detrick Biolabs and unexplained respiratory diseases such as e-cigarette diseases? Why has the US not invited the WHO to Fort Chad in the United States so far? On the issue of traceability, why can't the United States go if China goes there? The US should show transparency, answer all questions, and respond to outside concerns.
