Canadian Health Minister Patty Hajdu has defended China for its job in handling the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Canadian media.

Asked whether China was "honest" and "forthcoming" in the intelligence it shared with the global community about the risks of the novel coronavirus, Hajdu said all countries have difficulties calculating the extent of a virus' spread.

"Look, very early on, China alerted the World Health Organization (WHO) to the emergence of a novel coronavirus and also shared the sequencing of the gene, which allowed countries to be able to rapidly produce tests to be able to detect it in their own countries," Hajdu said on The West Block.
