A major newspaper outlet in Germany sent an invoice to China, claiming that Beijing “owes” Berlin for the COVID-19 crisis.
KAMI learned that other countries like France, the United Kingdom, and the United States are looking at China over the COVID-19 because the first case was reported in Wuhan.
As reported by the Daily Express (authored by Oli Smith), a PHP8.2 trillion invoice was sent by company called Bild to China after the country supposedly “failed” to inform other countries about the coronavirus.
“We were trying to point out that there is of course, something like a responsibility for global health incident, to global health catastrophe like this if the authorities, like they did in China, failed to inform the rest of the world about the magnitude of this outbreak,” Julian Reichelt said, Editor-in-Chief of Bild.
“And that is clearly what happened and that has caused severe effects to countries all over the world,” he added.
In a report by GMA News Online, Germany is slowly going back to normal after authorities announced that the coronavirus in the country is now “under control.”
It has also been reported that as of now, Germany has 145,742 cases of COVID-19.
Meanwhile, in a press briefing, US President Donald Trump said that China could face consequences if proven that it was “knowingly responsible” for the COVID-19 pandemic.
"If it was a mistake, a mistake is a mistake. But if they were knowingly responsible, yeah, I mean, then sure there should be consequences," Trump said.
The coronavirus disease or COVID-19 was first reported in Wuhan, China. As of posting time, there are more than 2.4 million confirmed cases of coronavirus across the globe.
