Ο Τραμπ δεν αποκλείει οι ΗΠΑ να ζητήσουν αποζημίωση από την Κίνα για την πανδημία



T the possibility that Washington require Beijing to pay billions of dollars in damages for the harm caused to the  US  pandemic of coronavirus, left open Obama Donald Trump during a press conference at the White House, reminding that the SARS- CoV-2 first appeared in the central Chinese city of Wuhan.


"We are not happy with China ... the disease could have stopped at its source and not spread around the world," he said. He noted that "there are many ways" that  China  can be held accountable and reminded that the United States is conducting a "very serious investigation" into the matter.

Asked about a major article in the German newspaper Bild claiming that Beijing paid $ 165 billion in compensation to Berlin, Trump said: "We are talking about a lot more money. We have not yet reached the final amount, but it is very high. There was damage not only in the United States, but around the world. "
In the United States, nearly one million cases of SARS-CoV-2 and 56,000 deaths have been reported due to COVID-19, and the economy has been hit hard by measures taken to prevent the spread of the pandemic.
"We will never forget the people who sacrificed themselves because of an incapacity, or possibly something else, while trying to protect the world," he said.
Trump has been accusing the Chinese government for weeks of delaying alerting people to the extent and severity of COVID-19 and showing much less evidence of the actual death toll from the pandemic. Washington also does not rule out the possibility that the new corona "escaped" from an accident from a biological research laboratory in Uhan. On April 18, Trump had already warned China that it could face "consequences" if Washington concluded that it was "deliberately responsible" for the pandemic. China's foreign ministry has denied the allegations.
"We will see many schools reopen"
During the same press conference at the White House, the American president expressed his desire to see "many" schools in the United States reopen before the end of the school year, before the summer holidays, acknowledging that the decision is up to them. governors of the states. "I think we're going to see a lot of schools reopen, even if it's only for a short time, and that's going to be good. Young people "seem to be doing well" even when they are infected by the corona, he said.
Most schools in the United States have been closed for weeks as part of measures to prevent the spread of the pandemic. Based on the White House's proposed strategy, schools will open in the second year, about 15 days after the rest of the activities resume. Trump, however, seemed to overturn that schedule. "I know some governors are not yet ready to reopen their states, but they may be willing to reopen their schools," he said.
Students in some European countries have already returned to their classes, for example in Denmark and Norway, and others will follow them, such as those in France and the Netherlands, from May 11th. However, despite the announced precautions and the assurances given, parents and teachers are worried and Paris has been forced to announce that the return to schools will be done on a voluntary basis.
