WHO's Covid-19 Origin Report Draws Fire

The White House criticized a World Health Organization report on the origins of the coronavirus, calling it incomplete and faulting data and access provided to its authors by China.

President Joe Biden’s press secretary, Jen Psaki, said Tuesday at a briefing that he “believes the American people, the global community, the medical experts, the doctors, all of the people who have been working to save lives, the families who have lost loved ones, all deserve greater transparency.”
