Coronavirus / USA: China did not present enough original data about the new coronavirus – Coronavirus


US President’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said on Sunday that Chinese authorities had not provided “sufficient original data” on the origin and subsequent spread of the new coronavirus, which infected more than 28 million Americans, EFE reports. of Agerpres.

“I am about to publish a report on the origins of the pandemic in Wuhan, China, which we have questions about because we do not believe that Beijing has provided enough original data on how this pandemic began to spread in both China. , and later around the world, “the US official told CBS News.

On February 9, the World Health Organization (WHO) mission, which conducted an investigation in Wuhan, ruled out the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 came from a laboratory, while considering that the virus may have reached in China from other countries, through the cold frozen food chain.

Faced with the controversy caused by the announcement made by the expert mission, WHO Director of Health Emergencies Mike Ryan reacted on February 15, saying the purpose of the visit was not to “investigate China” but to learn lessons for the future.

Jake Sullivan stressed that “the only way to have a scientifically based investigation is to have access to all the data and not just (…) to know what happened in this pandemic and to be able to prevent future pandemics.”

“I can’t say how COVID-19 came about,” he said. “All I can do is ask the WHO to do its best.”

In this context, he spoke in favor of the investigation being carried out by specialists. The investigation “should be left to scientists and experts so that they can carry it out without any government intervention.”

Jake Sullivan also referred to a two-hour conversation that White House leader Joe Biden had with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping.

“President Biden has raised the issue of COVID-19, stressing the need for all countries to take responsibility for helping to protect the world, including China,” Sullivan said.

The national security adviser pointed out that Washington “is not in a position to make a decision on the origin” of the pandemic because, among other things, “there was not enough transparency from the Chinese government.”

The United States is the country hardest hit by the pandemic, with more than 28 million people infected and nearly 500,000 dead, according to data provided by Johns Hopkins University.
