China rejects WHO’s proposal to begin second phase of Covid-19 origins study, says the proposal showed ‘disrespect for common sense’

Earlier the President of United States, Joe Biden has ordered that US intelligence agencies should make an investigation into the origin of Covid-19.He wants to know how pandemic began.This was after he noted that Western observers have yet to be given the permission to check out to key laboratories to know “whether it was an experiment gone awry.”

Zeng Yixin, China’s deputy head of the National Health Commission, in a press conference in Beijing on Thursday July 22, admitted of being “surprised” to see the lab leak listed as a research objective under the second phase of the investigation.

“In some aspects, the WHO’s plan for next phase of investigation of the coronavirus origin doesn’t respect common sense, and it’s against science. It’s impossible for us to accept such a plan,” he said.

WHO had initially released a report from its investigation into the origins of Covid-19 in March 2021, in which it determined that the virus probably originated in an animal before spreading to human beings around December 2019. But the US, EU and G7, questioned the WHO’s report.
