The United States and 13 other countries signed a joint statement expressing their concerns over the controversial study conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO) aimed at discovering the origin of the CCP Virus in China, lamenting the late start of the investigation and the lack of access experts had to key information on their trip to Wuhan, the epicenter of the virus.

The WHO study, co-authored by a team of Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and international scientists, stated that the possibility of transmission of the virus from bats to humans via an animal intermediate was the “most likely” source of the CCP Virus. They also dismissed the theory that the virus leaked from a laboratory as “extremely unlikely.”

However, the results of the investigation are strongly questioned by the international community, scientists, and government officials. Those who denounce that the complicity between the WHO and the CCP led the organization to cover up the origin of the virus so as not to harm the CCP’s interests.

Fourteen countries presented on March 30 a joint statement, expressing their concern that the study by international experts on the origins of the “SARS-CoV-2 virus was significantly delayed and did not have access to original and complete data and samples.”

The signatory countries are: Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Israel, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, South Korea, Slovenia, United Kingdom, and the United States.

“Scientific missions like these should be able to do their work under conditions that produce independent and objective recommendations and findings,”  they warned in the statement.

And with future research in mind, the signatory governments noted, “We share these concerns not only for the benefit of learning all we can about the origins of this pandemic but also to lay a pathway to a timely, transparent, evidence-based process for the next phase of this study as well as for the next health crises.”

With more than a year having passed since the start of the outbreak of the CCP Virus, WHO officially entered China to investigate the origin of the virus. The 10-member WHO team encountered many obstacles upon arrival in China.

Two members were also denied entry due to visa problems. Dominic Dwyer, a microbiologist at the University of Sydney and the only Australian member on the team, also revealed that the team’s request to see raw patient data on nearly 200 cases was only met with a summary from the Chinese scientists.

Doubts about the veracity of their reports abound, now revealed in addition, that one of the WHO researchers, the renowned Dr. Peter Daszak, who was part of the team that entered China to investigate the origin of the virus and analyze the possibility that the virus was created at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, has worked for that institute for more than 20 years, proving an embarrassing conflict of interest.

On Friday, Jan. 15, the U.S. State Department released evidence that researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology had become ill with CCP-Virus-like symptoms weeks before the first outbreak was reported. However, this information appears not to have been considered by the controversial WHO investigation.
