Experts debunk China’s claim Omicron imported on Canadian package

CBC News: The National in Canada shows that China blamed Beijing’s first case of the Omicron variant on a package from Canada, something that Canadian experts were quick to say is 'not based on science.'

Canadian Doctors say claim that Beijing's 1st Omicron case came from Canada isn't based on science. Canadian Health minister calls it really 'an extraordinary view.'

Many people are treating this with deep skepticism.

Chinese health authorities said that a case of Omicron in Beijing may have spread from a package received from Canada. They urged citizens to stop ordering parcels from abroad as the opening of the so-called Winter Olympics approaches.

Canadian medical experts say that it is unlikely that such a shipment could spread the virus.
