Trump Claims That U.S. Intelligence Knew Nothing About The Coronavirus In November

Information that the US intelligence community had information about an outbreak of coronavirus in the Chinese city of Wuhan in November 2019 is not true. This was stated on Friday by the President of the United States Donald Trump on his Twitter page.

On Wednesday, ABC reported citing sources in the security services that the National Center for Medical Intelligence (NCMI) warned the White House about the harmful effects of the coronavirus on both human health and business back in November last year.

"This is false ABC news. They knew they were wrong to publish this fictional story! " Trump wrote.

On Thursday, the National Center for Medical Intelligence (NCMI) stated that "all the media reports about the November 2019 coronavirus report are incorrect."
