WHO and China COVID-19 Origin Report Receives Bipartisan Backlash

A report by the World Health Organization (WHO) and China on the origins of COVID-19 is receiving bipartisan backlash.

The leaked draft report says the possibility the virus escaped from a lab was “extremely unlikely.”

Jamie Metzl, a former Clinton administration member and a member of the WHO advisory committee, hit back at the WHO and China over their findings on “60 Minutes.”

Metzl was asked, “You’re saying that China did the investigation and showed the results to the committee and that was it?”

And Metzl replied, “Pretty much that was it — not entirely, but pretty much that was it.”

Metzl continued his criticism on social media following his interview.

Peter Daszak, president of non-profit EchoHealth Alliance which received NIH funding to conduct research at the Wuhan Institute for Virology on bat coronaviruses, also appeared on “60 Minutes” and echoed the report’s finding that a lab leak was “extremely unlikely.”

Daszak is also a WHO team member and is leading the COVID-19 origin investigation.

Clearly, Daszak has a significant conflict of interest.

Dr. Tom Borelli, a molecular biologist, routinely slammed Daszak over his conflict of interest and was recently blocked by Daszak on Twitter for exposing his substantial salary from his non-profit.

Borelli appeared on NewsmaxTV to respond to the “60 Minutes” interview.

Former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Dr. Robert Redfield appeared on CNN and slammed China over their mishandling of the virus.

New York Post reports:

“It seems to me that some of the information is people are not being transparent about it. I could use the word ‘cover-up,’ but I don’t know that so I’m not going to speculate that.”

Critics commented on social media.

It’s crucial for the world to have answers about the origins of COVID-19, however, the WHO, China, and Daszak are making it impossible to get to the truth.

President Biden needs to step up and challenge China over the way the country is essentially producing propaganda surrounding the origins of COVID-19 but he is too weak of a leader to do what is necessary to protect U.S. interests.
