Senator Cotton joins Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo. He said that China is “still lying” about the gravity of the coronavirus outbreak that has killed (as of Feb. 17, 2020) more than 1,770 people.
Sen. Cotton speaks
To Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business.
From an interview:
In response to Maria’s opening where she asked Sen. Cotton to:
Asses the situation as you know it today.
Sen. Cotton replied:
The situation is very grave in part because …, China was lying from the beginning, and they’re still lying today. And also because there are so many unknowns about this virus. For example, how many people one person can infect once they have the virus?

The more we know the scariest it gets. Only a few miles away from the animal market, where according to the Chinese government, the virus outbreak has originated, is China’s only biosafety level 4 super laboratory that researches human infectious diseases.
This virus did not originate in the Wuhan animal market. Epidemiologists who are widely respected from China who published a study … have demonstrated that several of the original cases did not have any contact with that food market. The virus went into that food market before it came out of that food market.
Said Sen. Cotton during the interview, and then added,
Now we don’t have evidence that this disease originated there, but because of China’s duplicity and dishonesty from the beginning we need to at least ask the question.
I think asking questions isn’t enough. We need to make sure that they will answer those questions and answer them honestly. So far, they refuse to do so.
