US calls for second phase of WHO Covid origin study
The US is ramping up pressure to find out where the Covid-19 pandemic started, and where specifically in China it originated, reported Daily Maverick (27 May 2021). The US has called for the World Health Organization (WHO) to start a second phase of investigation into the origins of the coronavirus in China. The first study was deemed "insufficient and inconclusive" by the US mission to the UN. A lack of access and constant Chinese-based chaperoning sabotaged the first study, creating impetus for a do-over.
