China has released a short animation named “Once Upon a Virus” mocking the United States’ response to the new COVID-19 using Lego-like figures to show the 2 countries.
Washington & Beijing are cinched in a war of words over the connection of the coronavirus outbreak, which emerged in the Wuhan city of china and has grown into a global pandemic.
United States President Donald Trump said on a video conference that he is confident the COVID-19 may have grown in a Chinese virology lab, but declined to describe the data.
China’s official Xinhua news agency posted an animation, in which red curtains open to reveal a stage featuring Lego-like figures in the form of a terracotta warrior wearing a face mask & the Statue of Liberty which is located in the United States.
“We discovered a new virus named coronavirus,” says the Lego-like figures in the form of a terracotta warrior.
“So what happened?”
As the terracotta warrior announces several warnings about the coronavirus and counts off the condition of china due to that small virus, the Statue of Liberty replies dismissively with echoes of United States President Donald Trump’s press conferences in which he played down the harshness of the illness.
“Are you accepting to yourselves?” asks the terracotta warrior.
“We are always right, even though we negate ourselves,” the statue of Liberty replies to terracotta warrior.
“That’s what I love about Americans,” says the terracotta warrior to the Statue of Liberty.
The United States and other countries have made China accused of misguiding the world about the severity of the COVID-19 outbreak, and there are asking calls for an international analysis into the origins of the coronavirus.
We haven’t created the animation, Lego’s press office wrote in an emailed statement on Saturday.
