China has rejected the request sent by the World Health Organization (WHO) to conduct a new investigation into the origin of the coronavirus in the country. According to Beijing, it is in fact necessary to adopt a “scientific” and not “political” approach to the pandemic emergency in progress. Yesterday, the WHO itself had asked not to politicize the pandemic and invited all countries to ” collaborate ” by disclosing ” all the data in their possession on the virus ”. The appeal was aimed in particular at China, where Covid-19 is believed to have originated. “We support scientific research – said Ma Zhaoxu, Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister at an online press conference – We are opposed to the politicization of research into the origins” of the coronavirus and “to the renunciation of the joint China-WHO relationship”. The report described it as “extremely unlikely ” that Covid-19 had left a laboratory, favoring the hypothesis of its passage from animal to human. ” The conclusions and recommendations of the joint report were recognized by the international community and from the scientific community – continued the deputy minister – Future research should and can only be pursued on the basis of this report. We must not start all over again “.
