First cases of the novel virus were first reported in Wuhan, China, last year and to date more than one million people have died globally. However, Beijing has continually denied the virus originated in the Communist nation.
China claims to suppressed the pandemic and warned other nations – including India which it is locked in a deadly border dispute with – to expect fresh coronavirus pain.
The Global Times – a state run publication – said: “It’s already autumn in the northern hemisphere and winter is not far away.
“As the temperature drops, the global pandemic is gaining a fresh momentum.
“Many European countries, which enjoyed relief for several days, face the impact of the second wave of the epidemic.
“The coronavirus is spreading in India, China’s southern neighbour, at an astonishing speed.
“Some predict India will become the world’s most epidemic-hit country.
“Then, of course, there’s the US.”
The state publication in a stunning rant claimed the US should be blamed for the global pandemic as they are the worst-hit but “most powerful country”.
Dr Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said the US is not in a good place.
He warned on Monday: “There are states that are starting to show an uptick in cases and even some increases in hospitalisations in some states.
“I hope not but we very well might start seeing increases in deaths.
“You don’t want to be in a position like that as the weather starts getting cold.”
India recently overtook Brazil with the second highest number of infections reaching more than six million.
However, deaths in India are still lower than in Brazil at 96,854.
In Europe, Spain and France are both seeing a terrifyingly high number of new daily infections.
On Saturday, France recorded a staggering 14,412 new cases over 24 hours and over the last seven days, more than 4,102 people have been hospitalised.
