In addition, the ministry called out the U.S. specifically, saying how instead of offering assistance to stop the coronavirus outbreak, it instead is just spreading panic.

“The U.S. government hasn’t provided any substantive assistance to us,” ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said.

“What it has done could only create and spread fear, which is a very bad example.”
