The United States on Friday summoned China’s ambassador after a senior official in Beijing tweeted that the US military may have started the COVID-19 pandemic, the State Department said.

“Spreading conspiracy theories is dangerous and ridiculous. We wanted to put the government on notice we won’t tolerate it, for the good of the Chinese people and the world,” a State Department official said.
