Coronavirus: Chinese state media take aim at US 'lab theory'

Chinese state media has accused US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo of lying, after he said there was "enormous evidence" the coronavirus emanated from a laboratory in Wuhan. Mr Pompeo made the claim on Sunday, without going into specifics. In an editorial on Tuesday, the hawkish Global Times newspaper said Mr Pompeo was "degenerate". The World Health Organization says the US claims are "speculative", and that it has seen no "specific evidence".
