US President Donald Trump continues to blame China for the coronavirus pandemic as the UN Chief warns of a cold war between the two superpowers.

Sep. 23 - US President Donald Trump angrily cast blame on China over the coronavirus pandemic in an address on Tuesday before the United Nations, whose chief warned against a new "Cold War" between the two powers.

At a General Assembly held almost entirely virtually due to COVID-19, Mr Trump delivered a speech in election campaign mode, even using his loaded term "China virus" as the US death toll crossed the grim milestone of 200,000.
