US-China ties: White House says China covered up COVID-19 cases

The White House has described the US relationship with China as “disappointing and frustrating”, as a rift deepens over the origins of the coronavirus.

Trump has intensified his rhetoric against China recently and some analysts say this is a pre-election gambit.
