Chinese ambassador to the U.S.: Guard against 'political virus'

As the U.S. government announced a public health emergency and temporary travel restrictions over the spread of the novel coronavirus, Chinese Ambassador to the U.S. Cui Tiankai spoke up on Saturday in California. He expressed his "heart-felt appreciation" to the American people for their valuable support for China in this special moment. He also urged both countries to guard against the "political virus" that prevents China and the United States from joining hands to counter common challenges.
