Pompeo: China does not allow American scientists to enter the country to investigate coronavirus

The Secretary of state accused Beijing of insufficient transparency in the situation with the coronavirus.

US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo says that China does not allow American scientists to come to the country to investigate the origin of the coronavirus.

As Pompeo said on Fox News, China does not provide “the necessary level of transparency and openness” in the situation with the pandemic, which began in the Chinese city of Wuhan and subsequently spread around the world.

“Even today, the Chinese government has not allowed American scientists to come to China and visit not only the laboratory in Wuhan but any places that need to be visited to learn more about the origin of the virus,” Pompeo said.

He did not specify details about the scientists ‘ request to travel to China.
