China rejects EU accusations over COVID-19 fake news

In a report titled  ‘Getting the Facts Right‘ Brussels accused China and Russia of engaging in targeted disinformation campaigns around COVID-19. Last week Hua Chunying, spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry rejected the accusations by saying that China is a victim of disinformation campaigns, not a fabricator. In turn, Vera Jourova, vice-president of the European Commission in charge of values and transparency, claimed: ‘We are clearly mentioning Russia and China and we have sufficient evidence to make such a declaration. It’s very evidence-based.’
