UK calls China out on Covid-19 outbreak 

 China has questions to answer on how speedily it made the world aware of the extent of the coronavirus crisis, the UK's defence minister said, as concerns grow over future relations between the west and China. “The time for the post-mortem on this is after we’ve all got it under control and have come through it,” Ben Wallace said on LBC radio. “It’s in everybody’s interest for us to be transparent.” His comments on Monday come after US President Donald Trump raised the heat on China for its role in the spread of the virus by accusing it of trying to cover up a “horrible mistake” and pledging to soon release a “very conclusive report” on the origin of the disease.
