From Global Net:

Global Times special correspondent Li Heng reported, according to Hong Kong’s “Wen Wei Po” reported on April 30. At the time of global fighting against swine flu, someone took the opportunity to discredit China. The United States “New York Times” actually alleging the source of swine flu comes from China. This reporter soon was “human flesh searched” by Chinese netizens.

Health Ministry spokesman Man Qun’an said in an interview, "Driven by ulterior motives, some overseas media have ignored the facts of the epidemic and basic scientific knowledge and deliberately fabricated rumors that this epidemic came from China," He said the media reports were "aimed at undermining China’s global reputation." “In this regard, we firmly oppose”.

Although Mao did not disclose which foreign media these reports came from, but Netizens searched through “human flesh search engine”, and ultimately found the article “Swine flu epidemic may come from China” on the New York Times website. The author is New York Times reporter in Hong Kong.

In addition, netizens posted their messages to denounce rumors and the person who created the rumors. Someone said “The press is really talented, to have much imagination to write such article.” Some said “Take this kind of opportunity to frame (China) is so obsolete.”

“Wen Wei Po” also revealed that governor of Mexico’s Veracruz state Fidel Herrera Beltrán quoted as saying the virus specifically came from China. The Mexican ambassador to China, Jorge Guajardo, told The New York Times this week that the disease did not originate in Mexico. Instead, he suggested that it was brought to Mexico by an infected person from somewhere in "Eurasia," the land mass of Europe and Asia. From these comments, the attitude of the governor is trying to point finger to China in order to shift off responsibility.
