Beijing – China has refused to re-investigate the origin of the Coronavirus in China’s Wuhan lab. On Thursday, the World Health Organization (WHO) demanded that China provide raw data from the early days of the Coronavirus outbreak. China has rejected the demand, saying it does not need a new inquiry.
China’s Deputy Foreign Minister Ma Zhaoxu has rejected a proposal for a new inquiry saying, ‘China is opposed to reopening the investigation for political motives, as well as cancelling the earlier report. The joint report of China and the WHO has been endorsed by the international community. If any further investigation is to be conducted, it has to be based on this report.’
A report released by the WHO a few months ago denied the involvement of Wuhan Lab. This was also supported by Tedros Ghebreyesus, the head of the WHO, at the time. But then, last month, the head of the WHO changed his opinion and indicated readiness for re-investigation. The World Health Organization (WHO) has called on China to provide more transparency and openness and share raw data of the early times of the Coronavirus pandemic. This was reiterated on Thursday.
By rejecting it, however, China seems to have reinforced the suspicion that everything is not well about the origin of the Coronavirus.
