He enlightened the participants on the question "Why do viruses come from China all the time?" In his own words, "To have a look at the current pandemic and what does it mean in terms of China's role in it, we have to go back in history and understand where did all this come from" He further added "The context of the virus and where China is at today is to be kept in mind when we look at it and examine the intent of China with respect to the world many years ago."
