China rejects new WHO’s calls for a renewed probe into the origins of COVID-19

China on Friday rejected the World Health Organization’s calls for a renewed probe into the origins of COVID-19, saying it supported “scientific” over “political” efforts to find out how the virus started.

Pressure is again mounting on Beijing to consider a fresh probe into the origins of a pandemic that’s killed more than four million people since it first emerged in the central Chinese city of Wuhan.

A delayed and heavily politicized WHO team of international experts went to Wuhan in January 2021 to produce a first phase report, which was written in conjunction with their Chinese counterparts. It failed to conclude how the virus began.
