China’s Foreign Ministry has made a statement suggesting that the U.S. Army might be responsible for the outbreak of coronavirus in Wuhan, the Chinese city where the disease first emerged.

Speaking via a tweet on Thursday, foreign ministry spokesperson, Zhao Lijian, wrote:

“When did patient zero begin in US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals?”

Zhao went on to allege that it “might be [the] US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan.”

“Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation,” he wrote.
