US-led investigation into origins of Covid-19 inconclusive

Published

Officials remain divided over whether the Covid-19 virus originated from a lab or person-to-animal contact

US officials say that the investigation into the origins of Covid-19 remains inconclusive.

To date, the most plausible theories are that the virus leaked from a lab, or an infected animal spread it to humans.

Citizens globally are still waiting for officials to release a summary of the findings in a few days’ time. However, the media is still reporting that the investigation has come to no conclusion.

President Biden initially requested the investigation following the WHO travelling to Wuhan earlier this year. The WHO determined that the virus probably did come from an animal.

China dismisses lab theory as ‘anti-science’

Meanwhile, China’s foreign minister has dismissed the lab leak theory and other further reporting as ‘anti-science’.

The minister added that the US has effectively “ignored and abandoned” the WHO’s previous research.

The WHO’s report dismisses the possibility that the virus may have leaked from a lab. However, sceptics point out that the Wuhan lab in question has studied bats for years.

News that several researchers at the lab were hospitalised back in November 2019 prompted Biden’s decision to launch a further investigation.

Published

on

China initiated military ‘punishment’ exercises in the waters surrounding Taiwan in response to the newly inaugurated President Lai Ching-te.

These drills come amid escalating tensions in the region, with Beijing asserting its sovereignty over Taiwan, denouncing the inauguration of President Lai Ching-te and labelling this one of several “separatist acts”, as reported by Reuters.

These military manoeuvres are seen as a show of force and a warning to Taiwan and its supporters against any moves perceived as challenging China’s territorial claims.

President Lai has repeatedly offered talks with China but has been rebuffed.

He says only Taiwan’s people can decide their future, and rejects Beijing’s sovereignty claims.
