Pompeo says G7 discussed China's coronavirus 'disinformation'


The Group of Seven (G7) big economies discussed an "intentional disinformation campaign" by China on the coronavirus in a virtual meeting on Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said, adding that the world still needed accurate information on the outbreak from Beijing. The outbreak began in Wuhan, Hubei province late last year and Pompeo repeated previous charges that China had delayed sharing information. At a State Department news conference, Pompeo said full transparency was needed to fight the new coronavirus, which he again referred to as the "Wuhan virus," a term that has angered China.
