Pentagon announced further weapons testing during the pandemic

The U.S. intends to conduct arms testing despite the spread of coronavirus infection in the world. This was announced Friday, May 1, by U.S. Army Chief of Staff General James McConville during a teleconference organized by the Brookings Institution in Washington.

Pentagon is testing hypersonic weapons, he said, which have been deemed very successful. That’s how he answered the question about the possible impact of the pandemic on military industry orders.

The renewal of the U.S. military industry continues despite the spread of coronavirus. “We are talking to testers, industry representatives,” the general explained.

April 28, U.S. President Donald Trump said the country is considering several liability options for China due to the spread of coronavirus. He spoke about willingness to hold China accountable if it turns out that the country has not taken the necessary measures to prevent the pandemic or has hidden the data.

In early April, specialists from the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases began testing the coronavirus vaccine SARS-CoV-2.
