WH: China's position on COVID origins probe 'dangerous'

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated on Thursday that China's position on the investigation into the origins of COVID-19 is "irresponsible" and "dangerous."

Psaki expressed the administration's "deep disappointment" with Chinese authorities for refusing to cooperate with the World Health Organization, adding that the US continues to call on China to provide needed access and data. Moreover, she added that the investigation is about "saving lives in the future" and that now is not the time for "stonewalling."

Lastly, Psaki noted that the US supports a "multilateral" approach to global health, saying that the country is joined by the wider international community in calling on China to cooperate in the investigation into the origins of the virus and asserted that China isn't living up to its obligations.
