WASHINGTON. White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan on Sunday accused China of withholding information that could shed light on the beginnings of the current new coronavirus pandemic.

The DPA informed about it.

“We do not think that China will provide enough original data on how this pandemic began to spread – first in China itself and then around the world,” Sullivan told CBS television.

According to Sullivan, who has been nominated by the new US President Joe Biden, not only China but also the World Health Organization (WHO) should do more in this direction.

According to him, the beginnings of the pandemic need to be clarified by “a credible, open and transparent international investigation led by the WHO”. He emphasized that the information obtained would also be crucial in preventing possible future pandemics.

Sullivan also criticized the approach taken by the administration of former US President Donald Trump in the fight against coronavirus. According to him, the Trump government did not approach the whole matter with the seriousness it required.

In the first half of February, an international WHO expert team investigated the origin of the new coronavirus directly in Wuhan, China, the original epicenter of the pandemic. The World Health Organization mission arrived there more than a year after the pandemic began.

However, the team members did not reach any specific conclusions during the two-week mission. According to WHO experts, all hypotheses about the origin of the virus are still open.

Scientists have identified bats as the most likely original source of the infection. The theory of a virus leak from the Wuchan virology laboratory was again called very unlikely.
