UN urges China to cooperate with WHO on virus origins

United Nations Deputy Spokesperson for the Secretary-General Farhan Haq stated during a briefing on Friday that the UN is urging all countries, including China, to cooperate with the World Health Organization in the investigation of the origins of the COVID-19 virus.

Haq also stressed that the WHO is at the head of the investigation and it is up to the agency to plan the execution of the process.

Earlier, the Chinese government declared that the WHO plan for the second stage of the investigation was "disrespectful" and "contrary to science." White House Press Secretary described China's stance as "dangerous" and "irresponsible."
