Anti-China sentiments have reached the same heights as the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown, according to an internal document produced by the Chinese Ministry of State Security and viewed by Reuters.

Sources quoted by Reuters said the report cautioned that brewing animosity toward China due to the coronavirus pandemic could cause conflict with the United States.

"These are not the first times that we've had a world exposed to viruses as a result of failures in a Chinese lab," Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during an interview Sunday

"And so, while the intelligence community continues to do its work, they should continue to do that, and verify so that we are certain, I can tell you that there is a significant amount of evidence that this came from that laboratory in Wuhan."

Over the past few weeks, President Donald Trump and top Republican lawmakers have attacked China's coronavirus response.

Geng Shuang, a spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said the U.S. was to blame for its response. 

"The U.S. government has ignored the facts, diverted public attention and engaged in buck passing in an attempt to shirk its responsibility for incompetence in the fight against the epidemic."
