Check the facts first: Corona conspiracy theories are counterproductive

As the Belt and Road Institute in Sweden (BRIX) warned last week, the peddling of conspiracy theories about the Coronavirus are counterproductive to the global fight of all nations against this pandemic.

We believe that nations of the world, experts, and healthcare workers should work together across national, cultural and political barriers to defeat the common enemy of mankind, the Corona virus.

In this context, the BRIX is publishing this “fact sheet” issued by the Chinese Foreign Ministry to answer questions raised by American politicians and mass media pointing the finger at China for being the cause of the pandemic. While these claims have gained wide ranging coverage in the Western world, China’s response has not!

To be fair to a free dialog among nations on this crisis and ways to concur it, we publish this fact sheet!
