US Department of State refutes charges that the United States created the Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2)

WASHINGTON, 23 March 2020, TON: The Spokeswoman of the US Department of State Morgan Ortagus has strongly refuted Iranian leader Khamenei's repetition of allegations that the United States created the coronavirus "Wuhan Virus" (SARS-CoV-2). On 23 March 2020, in a speech broadcast live to the Iranian nation, Khamenei turned down the United States' offer of help in dealing with the coronavirus epidemic in Iran including sending medicines to fight the outbreak. Khamenei said to US, "Use what you have for your own patients." Khamenei also said Iran could not trust the US because they could be giving medicines that spread the virus or cause it to remain and alleged that a section of the virus was created to match the genes of Iranians. In a tweet on, Morgan Ortagus quoted a tweet from Khamenei's account to the same effect and said the "conspiracy theories about the Wuhan Virus" by Khamenei are harmful, irresponsible, and 100 percent false.
