China strongly opposed US politican's 'Chinese virus' comment, which is a stigmatization of China, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang said Tuesday, urging the US side to immediately correct its mistakes and stop making groundless accusations against China.

The source of the COVID-19 has not yet been identified. The World Health Organization and the international community are clearly opposed to linking COVID-19 to specific countries and regions and to stigmatizing them.

Geng said that the outbreak of COVID-19 is spreading in many parts of the world. It is urgent for the international community to make concerted efforts to carry out anti-pandemic cooperation.

"The US should first do its own thing, while playing a constructive role in international cooperation against the pandemic and safeguarding global public health security," Geng added.
