Islam News – A Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson on Monday urged the United States to invite World Health Organization (WHO) experts to investigate the Fort Detrick lab for coronavirus origin tracing as soon as possible.
The United States must do so to show the truth to the world, spokesperson Zhao Lijian said.
Zhao made the remarks at a daily news briefing in response to a question on the increasing amount of voices from the media and experts from multiple countries, criticizing the U.S. politicizing the issue of virus origin tracing.
Some people in the United States are bent on political manipulation under the pretext of virus origin tracing to divert attention and shift blame for a poor performance in their pandemic response, Zhao said, adding, “Their vicious motives have long been laid bare.”
He said the United States is the country with the most COVID-19 infections, the timeline of infection cases at the early stage in the United States is advancing, and that the correlation between Fort Detrick and vaping-related illnesses remains puzzling.
“If there are to be investigations on laboratories, the WHO should go to the Fort Detrick,” he said.
