The following article, China Laughably Tries Blaming USA for Creation of COVID Pandemic, was first published on Flag And Cross.
China must sense rough seas ahead. They’ve got to know that, when a long-awaited report on the origins of COVID-19 goes public, that they are going to be saddled with a mountain of culpability, or, at the very least, a reputation as a reckless, ticking time bomb on the world’s stage.
Otherwise, they wouldn’t be resorting to some of the absolute gibberish they’ve been spouting of late.

China has repeatedly speculated that the U.S. leaked the virus, pointing to Fort Detrick and the University of North Carolina labs as possible sources of COVID. Fort Detrick is a military installation that contains biomedical labs that research viruses including Ebola and smallpox.
CGTN published a headline arguing that the U.S. “should” invite the World Health Organization to investigate the labs, while another article outright labeled the U.S. probe into COVID-19 origins “propaganda against China.”
And that wasn’t all…
