China rejects WHO’s call for new probe into COVID-19 origins

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.

“We oppose political tracing… and abandoning the joint report” issued after a WHO expert team visited Wuhan in January, vice foreign minister Ma Zhaoxu told reporters.

“We support scientific tracing.”
