President Trump's notes from the 19 March 2020 coronavirus briefing shows that the word 'Corona' is crossed out and is replaced with the word 'Chinese'.

An exclusive report by The Washington Post and President Trump's remarks published by the White House supports the statement.

An exclusive photograph by The Washinton Post staff photographer Jabin Botsford shows that the word 'Corona' in the President's speech notes on 19 March 2020 was replaced with 'Chinese' in President Trump’s notes. The article states that Trump used the word Chinese Virus instead of Corona Virus to show that the virus was first detected in Wuhan, China.

Remarks of the press briefing published by the White House shows that Trump had used the term Chinese Virus while referring to the coronavirus.
