The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security are planning to file charges against China for attempting to steal COVID-19 coronavirus research data. This is reported by American media with reference to a copy of the allegations received, as well as information from sources.
The copy of the allegations says that China seeks “secretly to access valuable information protected by intellectual property rights, as well as public health data related to vaccine development, treatment and testing.”
In response to the message, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China noted that China is opposed to cyber attacks. “China is a leader in vaccine research and treatment for COVID-19. It’s immoral for anyone to spread unsubstantiated rumors, ”the Wall Street Journal quoted the spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry as saying.
The United States previously accused China of hiding pandemic information.
