Covid Origins Probe "Being Poisoned By Politics": World Health Organisation
The UN health agency has been under increasing pressure to conduct a fresh, more in-depth study into the origins of Covid-19, but no schedule for the next stage of the study has been set. Geneva, Switzerland – The World Health Organization cautioned on Friday that politics were obstructing efforts to discover the roots of the Covid-19 outbreak, arguing that experts required room to investigate the mystery.
"We would urge that we remove the science from the politics and get on with discovering the solutions we need in a good, constructive climate," WHO emergency chief Michael Ryan said. Politics is tainting the entire process," he cautioned. The UN health agency has been under increasing pressure to conduct a fresh, more in-depth study into the origins of Covid-19, but no schedule for the next stage of the study has been set. President Joe Biden of the United States has directed the US intelligence community to look into whether the Covid-19 virus initially appeared in China from an animal source or as a result of a laboratory error. The action indicates to rising irritation with the wait for a comprehensive WHO inquiry into how the pandemic began, which has claimed the lives of almost 3.5 million people throughout the world. During a summit of WHO member states, European Union nations and others asked for clarification on the organization's next actions in solving the riddle, which is considered as critical to preventing future pandemics.
