There has never been a cover-up of the coronavirus outbreak in China, as the government never allows any cover-ups, the country's foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said on Friday, APA reports citing Sputnik.

Speaking to reporters at a daily briefing, Zhao said that the revision of coronavirus cases in Wuhan, where the virus originated, was a common international practice.

The statement follows Wuhan's health authority's rectification of incorrect reporting, delays and omissions that revised the cumulative death toll by 50%.
