The World Health Organization(WHO) will be releasing its report on the origins of the COVID-19 virus, the press will only receive 30 minutes to look at the report before being able to ask questions.
WHO has come under fire for its rules related to the press briefing surrounding the report it will be releasing and this comes off the back of fears that WHO will let China have sway over the investigation and report. The briefing will be held at 10:00am on Tuesday (3/30/21).
From The Daily Caller:
The WHO’s report is expected to conclude that it is “highly unlikely” that COVID-19 could have accidentally leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, according to the Associated Press, which obtained a draft copy of the report from a Geneva-based diplomat.
The WHO’s investigation into the origins of the pandemic in China has been mired in transparency issues and allegations of conflicts of interest. (RELATED: Can The WHO’s COVID-19 Investigation Be Trusted? Some Experts Say No)
The Chinese government has maintained strict control over all research into the pandemic’s origins since the outbreak, according to the AP. China also had veto power over the members of the WHO panel that were allowed to probe the virus’s origin in early 2021.
The origins of the COVID-19 virus will remain unknown, the official story is what we will see on Tuesday. Doubts have been cast on the report already due to China’s dubious action around the pandemic and their involvement in the report.
