China News Service, Beijing, August 5 (Reporter Zhang Su) Hundreds of US troops stationed in Japan were infected with the new crown pneumonia virus, and some commented that it has become a loophole in Japan's epidemic prevention system. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said in response to an inquiry at a regular press conference on August 5 that the United States should shoulder the special responsibilities of major powers and earnestly strengthen discipline and restraint on overseas troops.
According to Japanese media reports, as of August 3, the number of confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia by the US troops stationed in Japan in Okinawa alone has reached 270. Some reporters cited comments and pointed out that because the US troops stationed in Japan have not strictly implemented the entry and epidemic prevention regulations, it has become a major loophole in Japan's epidemic prevention system. What is China's comment?
"We have taken note of relevant reports." Wang Wenbin replied that the US military abused extraterritorial powers to bring viruses to relevant countries. This has become a major real risk for epidemic prevention and control worldwide.
"A big country should still look like a big country." He said that the United States should assume the special responsibilities of a big country, effectively strengthen discipline and restraint on overseas troops, and actively cooperate with the local area to prevent and control the epidemic.
