G-7 nations filed a joint statement calling for a “timely” investigation into the origins of COVID-19 in China on Sunday.
The leaders of G-7 nations published a “shared agenda” on Sunday, the final day of the summit in the U.K. The agenda detailed dozens of initiatives, but also called for the World Health Organization (WHO) to lead an investigation into whether COVID-19 leaked from a research lab in China.
“We also call for a timely, transparent, expert-led, and science-based WHO-convened Phase 2 COVID-19 Origins study including, as recommended by the experts’ report, in China,” the statement read.
