The United States has decided to find the source of COVID-19: Washington calls for an international investigation into the source of the coronavirus.
“We need to get to the origins of the early days of the pandemic in China, and we express our support for an international investigation that we think should be full and clear,” Psaki said.
Earlier, an independent research council from Switzerland accused Chinese authorities and the World Health Organization (WHO) of not acting quickly and decisively enough to prevent a coronavirus pandemic.
On Jan. 11, a WHO panel of experts allowed a version of the coronavirus to emerge outside of Wuhan, China. Chinese authorities and scientists have repeatedly questioned the version that the virus originated in Wuhan, even though it was first detected there. In particular, scientists have pointed to evidence of the origin of the coronavirus in Italy several months before the first case in China.
