As the world continues to be plagued by the COVID-19 pandemic and the United States has been passing the buck, politicizing the pandemic and producing propaganda against China only undermines global efforts to defeat the deadly coronavirus, said a political expert recently.

Muhammad Asif Noor, director of Islamabad-based think tank the Institute of Peace and Diplomatic Studies said that tracing the origin of the coronavirus has to be a scientific issue and should be carried out by scientists. Noor said that the U.S. should focus more efforts on its own anti-epidemic control, rather than find fault with other countries, as it is facing a resurgence of COVID-19 cases.

The expert also noted that China has provided assistance and support to other countries since the outbreak and other countries should learn from China and fight the virus together.
