Valletta, 16 August 2021 (TDI): The Ambassador of China to Malta, Yu Dunhai, wrote an article focusing on the scientifically based origin tracing of COVID-19. The article titled “Supporting science-based origin tracing and not ‘political virus’” was published in the Times of Malta newspaper.
In his article, he said that according to shreds of evidence, it is believed that COVID may have originated in other parts of the world instead of Wuhan. Ambassador Yu advocated the position of China on the origin-tracing of COVID-19 while rejecting conspiracy theories and disinformation.
Yu Dunhai stressed that to control the deadly virus, the process of origin tracing in other countries should be carried out on basis of science. He said that China has always cooperated in searching for COVID-19 origin and invited other countries to conduct joint research in China.
Yu Dunhai also sent a message in his article, saying, “Only by putting aside ideological prejudice, closing the immunization gap, upholding science, and bringing together a powerful joint force can we human beings truly defeat the virus.”
