48 UN Member States have sent a joint letter to the World Health Organization (WHO) opposing the politicization of probe into the origins of SARS-CoV-2, emphasizing that origins probing shall not be politicized and calling on the WHO Secretariat to cooperate with member states to advance the study of origins around the world in accordance with the relevant resolution of the World Health Assembly（WHA）. Zhao Lijian，the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson， made the remarks on July 15th , stressing it shows this fully reflects what is the shared aspiration of the international community and where the justice lies.
According to Zhao, the letter stresses that the virus is the common enemy of mankind, and it can only be defeated by solidarity and cooperation of the international community.
He also noted that since the beginning of the epidemic, China has taken a scientific, professional, serious and responsible attitude in probing the origins of the virus. China takes the lead in working with the WHO in global origins probing. On March 30, the WHO officially released the report of the WHO-convened global study of origins of SARS-CoV-2: China Part. The formulation of this report follows WHO procedures and adopts a scientific approach. It is authoritative and science-based and has been widely recognized and respected by the international community. It has laid a sound foundation for advancing global origins probing. China's open and transparent attitude on probing the origins of the virus has also been fully recognized by international experts.
In addition, Zhao pointed out that, however, for quite some time, a handful of countries, led by the US, have been stigmatizing the epidemic, putting a geographical label on the virus and politicizing the origins study. They blatantly disregard the achievements scientists made together and turn a blind eye to science and truth for their own selfish interests.
“We urge relevant parties to stop playing political games on the virus origins probing, stop using this issue to pass the buck, stop deliberately undermining international cooperation on global origins research. They should adopt a truly responsible and scientific attitude, and work with the international community to make due contributions to defeating the virus and protecting people’s health and well-being.” Zhao Lijian reiterated that the international community does need scientific and responsible origin probing.
