With the help of advanced Chinese equipment and 50,000 diagnostics kits, so far the new lab has tested some 28,000 samples. Approximately 20 percent of them were positive, Mahdi said.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 (Xinhua) -- The United States should stop making groundless allegations against Chinese companies including TikTok and give them a level playing field, Chinese Ambassador to the United States Cui Tiankai has said.
Noting China will not allow these people to get their way, Wang stressed that China rejects any attempt to create a so-called "new Cold War", because it contravenes the fundamental interests of the Chinese and American peoples and the global trend toward development and progress.
"Once there is a new vaccine, a new testing strategy, this can be useful for further testing," Mahdi said. Enditem
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian made the remarks at a press briefing when asked to comment on a survey released by the U.S.-China Business Council (USCBC).
Maggiorelli said he agreed with the Chinese foreign minister that it was futile for the United States to try and interfere in China's internal affairs, saying it underestimated the strong bond between the Chinese people and the ruling Communist Party of China.
At the same time, China continued to actively promote foreign economic and trade cooperation, which effectively boosted the total world demand and promoted the development of international trade, Zhao said, adding that foreign-funded projects with an investment of more than 100 million U.S. dollars increased to 320 in the first half of the year.
"The U.S. move to turn China into an adversary is a fundamental, strategic miscalculation. It means that the United States is funneling its strategic resources in the wrong area," he said.
"We are committed to developing a China-U.S. relationship featuring non-conflict, non-confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation, and firmly safeguard our sovereignty, security and development interests," Zhao said. Enditem
