Boris Johnson ‘Furious’ With China’s Role in Pandemic

China faces a “reckoning” in the United Kingdom for this global coronavirus pandemic, from spreading the disease to potentially lying about their number of cases, according to allies of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

“Of course, the only priority now is to deal with the crisis, but everybody knows that there has to be a reckoning when all this is over,” a government source told the U.K.’s Daily Mail, adding China has risked becoming a “pariah state.”

The outbreak in the U.K. has spread quickly of late, including to the prime minister himself, who is now in quarantine with mild symptoms, after reportedly admitting he had shaken hands with many healthcare workers.

The U.K. now has over 17,320 confirmed cases and more than 1,021 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.
