China Accuses U.S. Of “Malign Intention” To Discredit Its COVID Vaccines

WorldChina Accuses U.S. Of “Malign Intention” To Discredit Its COVID Vaccines

China’s embassy in the Philippines has accused the U.S. military of “hypocrisy, malign intention, and double standards” following a report on a secret U.S. campaign aimed at undermining confidence in Chinese vaccines and other aid during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Chinese Embassy in Manila issued a statement on Tuesday in response to an investigative report that revealed the U.S. military had launched a clandestine program during the COVID-19 pandemic to discredit China’s Sinovac vaccine in the Philippines. The investigation uncovered that the U.S. military’s efforts involved creating fake internet accounts to impersonate Filipinos, transforming these propaganda efforts into an anti-vax campaign.

“People around the world are indignant about the U.S. military’s actions, which lay bare the hypocrisy, malign intention, and double standards of the United States,” stated a spokesperson from the Chinese Embassy.

“While talking about respecting human rights, the United States does just the opposite regarding the fundamental human rights of life and health of the Filipino people,” the spokesperson added.

When approached for comment, the U.S. Embassy in Manila referred the request to the Department of Defense. According to the Reuters report, a senior Defense Department official admitted that the U.S. military engaged in covert propaganda to disparage China’s vaccine in the developing world but declined to provide further details.

A Pentagon spokeswoman was cited in the report, saying the U.S. military “uses a variety of platforms, including social media, to counter those malign influence attacks aimed at the U.S., allies, and partners.” She also accused China of starting a “disinformation campaign to falsely blame the United States for the spread of COVID-19.”
