Michael Ryan, head of the World Health Organization’s emergency programs, said on Monday that the US government had received no information from him regarding allegations of US President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suspected of having the coronavirus originated in a laboratory in the Chinese city of Wuhan. I have not provided evidence.
Michael Ryan told reporters in Geneva, “From our point of view this is just hypothetical.” He said, “We have not received any data or specific evidence from the US government regarding the alleged origin of the virus.
He said that WHO is “willing” to get any such information from the US. The Trump administration accused both China and the United Nations Health Agency that they did not take appropriate steps to deal with it after the virus first emerged in Wuhan. Kovid-19 has infected millions of people worldwide and killed at least 2,39,000 people.
At the same time, Trump also said on Friday that WHO is “like China’s public relations agency”. Ryan once again reiterated that according to the evidence and information are given to the United Nations Health Agency, Kovid-19 has arisen naturally. Trump and Pompeo say they have evidence of the virus originating in Wuhan’s Virology Laboratory.
Ryan said, “If data and evidence exist, now it is up to the US to know when to share it.” “There is good evidence that it came from Wuhan’s laboratory,” Pompeo said Sunday on ABC’s This Week program.
