White House questions WHO report on origin of virus investigation

On February 3, 2021, a convoy of WHO expert teams arrived at the Wuhan Institute of Virus Research to investigate the source of the CCP virus. A large number of police officers are deployed in front of the main gate of the institute.

The World health Organization released its report on the investigation into the origin of the virus on Tuesday (March 30). The White House said the process of investigating the origin of the virus was not transparent, the report lacked key data, and the Chinese Communist Party did not cooperate well. The White House also mentioned that the next phase of the investigation should be conducted independently by international experts.

In its final report, the WHO mission concluded that the possibility of the virus leaking from the Wuhan laboratory was defined as “highly unlikely,” and concluded that it was “very likely” that the virus was transmitted from The possibility of the virus being transmitted directly from bats to humans or through frozen Food lies somewhere in the middle.

Former Secretary of State Pompeo tweeted in response to the WHO report that the WHO report is a disingenuous continuation of the CCP-WHO disinformation campaign.

Report Lacks Key Data, Information and Access

The American people, the international community, medical experts, physicians and all those working to save lives, as well as families who have lost loved ones, are entitled to more transparent information, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Tuesday at a regular press conference when asked for her views on the WHO report on the origins of the virus.

“They deserve better information. They deserve the steps that the international community is taking to make that happen.” She said.

Pusaki referred to a joint statement issued Tuesday by 14 countries, including the United States, expressing concern about the long delay in the investigation and the failure to obtain full information.

“The report is missing key data, information and access. It presents a partial and incomplete picture.” She said, “We believe this (investigation) process should have a second phase and should be led by international and independent experts. They should have unrestricted access to the data. They should be able to ask questions of people who are on the ground, and that’s a step that WHO can take.”

One investigator on the WHO team has previously said that the CCP’s refusal to provide the mission with raw data on early COVID-19 cases during the China investigation could complicate efforts to understand how COVID-19 began.

“In my discussions with the team, they indicated difficulties in obtaining raw data,” WHO Director General Tandse said Tuesday, “and I hope that future collaborative studies will include more timely and comprehensive data sharing.”

Whether the virus was leaked from the Wuhan lab remains a concern

At the White House press conference, Psaki was also asked whether the possibility that this WHO report may have obscured the possibility that the virus escaped from the lab was a concern for the White House; and whether the White House believes that the Chinese side did not cooperate enough in the WHO investigation.

Psaki replied that they were not transparent (in the investigation process) and that they (the Chinese side) did not provide the underlying data. That certainly doesn’t count as cooperation.

She said the U.S. experts analyzed the report. They were concerned that there was no more support for a hypothesis (of the origin of the virus).

“It (the report) doesn’t give us any more insight or (gain) any more knowledge about the origin (of the virus) than we had six to nine months ago. Nor does it provide us with guidelines or steps and suggested steps on how we can avoid this in the future. Those are the immediate priorities.” Psaki said.

She did not directly answer a question about the virus leaking from the lab, only replying that the report does not provide greater insight into the origin of the virus.

Pompeo tweeted that Tandse worked with Xi to hide (the virus from) human-to-human transmission at a critical Time. The Wuhan Virus Institute remains the most likely source of the virus, and WHO is complicit.

Robert Redfield, director of the CDC under former President Trump, told CNN on March 26 that he believes the virus leaked from the Wuhan lab, but that the leak was not necessarily intentional.

As a virologist, Redfield questioned the claim that the virus was passed from animal to human, saying it made no sense biologically that the virus was passed from animal to human and could spread so well from human to human.

White House worried about WHO but insists U.S. should stay

Psaki revealed that 17 U.S. experts are analyzing the WHO report.

A reporter asked if the contents of the report confirmed President Trump’s belief that the WHO is a puppet of the Chinese Communist Party. Psaki avoided the topic of Chinese Communist puppets. I think we’ve expressed concerns about that role (of WHO) – the lack of transparency, the lack of data that is widely available to the global community,” she said. We think there are steps that can be taken to ensure that an independent investigation is conducted, which is to involve global experts in the next phase (of the investigation) of the process.”

She went on to emphasize that the World Health Organization is an institution in which the United States should participate, and that in order for the WHO to reform, the United States should have a seat at the table, which is why the United States rejoined the WHO.

Pompeo, for his part, again argued that the United States should withdraw from the WHO because it is an accomplice of the Chinese Communist Party.

The joint statement of 14 countries released Tuesday states, “It is critical that independent experts have access to all relevant human, animal and environmental information and research, as well as free access to those involved in the early stages of the Epidemic related to determining how the pandemic occurred.”
