Covid origin: What the world wants China to disclose in Wuha lab leak probe

BEIJING: The US push for a new inquiry to determine the origins of the coronavirus including whether it leaked from a Wuhan lab — raises a key question: What has China failed to disclose?

The Group of Seven leaders this weekend are set to call for a fresh, transparent, World Health Organization-convened study into the origins of this virus, according to a draft statement seen by Bloomberg News. Yet so far they’ve been vague on what exactly they want.

In his statement giving intelligence agencies 90 days to redouble efforts into the origin of Covid-19, President asked them to come up with “specific questions for China.” Beijing officials have repeatedly denied that the virus leaked from the lab, and pointed to a WHO report earlier this year that said the most likely origin was natural.
