China hits back at US over WHO coronavirus mission

China has pushed back at US criticism of the WHO and its investigation into the origins of
the coronavirus, accusing Washington of “severely undermining” the world health body.
The Chinese embassy in Washington said the United States suspended funding and withdrew from the World Health Oganization last year only to rejoin under the new administration.

“But the US, acting as if none of this had ever happened, is pointing fingers at other countries who have been faithfully supporting the WHO and at the WHO itself,” the embassy said. “It is hoped that the US will hold itself to the highest standards, take a serious, earnest, transparent and responsible attitude, shoulder its rightful responsibility, support the WHO’s work with real actions and make due contribution to the international cooperation on Covid-19.”
