China denies spreading virus disinformation following EU report

Agency News

China’s foreign ministry has denied claims that Beijing is spreading disinformation about the coronavirus.

“China is opposed to the creation and spreading of disinformation by anyone or any organisation. China is a victim of disinformation, not an initiator,” said foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang at a regular press briefing on Monday, Reuters reported.

The denial comes after an EU report last week there was evidence that state-backed governments, including China and Russia, were responsible for spreading disinformation on the virus.
