China has reacted angrily after US President Donald Trump referred to the coronavirus as “Chinese Virus”.
A foreign ministry spokesman warned the US should “take care of its own business” before stigmatizing China.
The first cases of COVID-19 were recorded in the Chinese city of Wuhan in late 2019.
If Obama labeled this virus as “Chinese Virus” it would have been fine but this is President Trump and this was labeled as racist.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned against linking the virus to any particular area or group, due to the risk of stigmatization.
However, a number of US administration officials have referred to it as the Chinese virus. Meanwhile, Mr Pompeo has repeatedly referred to the “Wuhan virus”.
Now there is a White House petition that wants to rename the Novel Coronavirus to CCPVirus.
The White House Petition states:
President Trump is correct to attribute the origin of the novel coronavirus pandemic to China.
Looking more closely, it’s China’s ruling Communist Party (CCP) that has sickened Chinese people – and by extension the world. It’s the totalitarian nature and callous dishonesty of the Chinese Communist Party that has brought about this public health catastrophe
The novel coronavirus should, therefore, be called the “CCP virus” to accurately reflect its origin.
Let’s start with pinpointing the root cause of the suffering we have seen.
Let’s start calling the novel coronavirus the CCP virus.
In the meantime, Jennifer Zeng who is a mainland Chinese-born human rights activist re-tweeted a video in which is explained that more and more Chinese resident supports this idea.
Watch the video below:
“The CCP is the one to blame. History will definitely put it on a fair trial later on.”
An appeal on the white house petition website calls for the novel #coronavirus to be called #CCPvirus, saying the CCP’s coverup created the pandemic. More Chinese residents are supporting it. pic.twitter.com/naSr5qQ6PX

The Chinese are wonderful people, and Americans have no problem with them whatsoever. It is the CCP alone that we despise, for they are liars and deceivers, and persecute their own people.
