Biden administration called on China to release all the available data from the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. It further added that Washington has deep concerns over the way the findings of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) investigative team were communicated.

Jake Sullivan, the White House’s Security Chief, said in a statement that the investigation of the team must be independent and from alteration by the regime in Beijing. Experts suggest that the new administration’s statement is echoing sounds of the former US President Donald Trump, who also quit the WHO over allegations that it was favoring the Chinese government.


In response, the Chinese embassy fired back and accused Washington of undermining multilateral cooperation and the global health agency in recent days. It further added that Washington has no right to point fingers at Beijing and other countries, who supported the WHO during the early days of the pandemic. Besides, it welcomed the Biden administration’s decision to reengage with the World Health Organization.

After the US stated that it wanted to review the report by the WHO’s team, On the other hand, the WHO’s Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Friday that all the hypotheses regarding the origins of the pandemic outbreak were still open. This week, the investigating team, which has been probing the outbreak’s origins, said that it was not looking into the question that the virus escaped from a lab in Wuhan.

The previous US administration condemned China’s response to the pandemic and maintained that it originated from a lab in Wuhan. However, Beijing categorically denied the accusations as baseless. The Oval Office’s security advisor Sullivan said that the new administration quickly overturned the decision of disengaging with the WHO but added that it was imperative to restore the credibility of the global organization. RushHourDaily reported that China complicated the efforts to determine the origins of the COVID-19 by refusing to provide the raw data on the early outbreak of the respiratory disease.
