China denies coronavirus lab leak theory

China's Foreign Ministry rejected on Thursday the possibility that the novel coronavirus was created by Chinese scientists and that it eventually leaked from a Wuhan laboratory.

The ministry's spokesman Zhao Lijian also noted in a statement that the world should stop politicizing the investigation into the origins of the COVID-19.

The comments come after several officials in the United States and the United Kingdom commented the lab leak theory could not be excluded, despite the conclusions made by the World Health Organization that the possibility is "extremely unlikely."
