British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said Britain wants further investigation into the origins of the Covid-19 pandemic. Speaking at the end of the Group of Seven summit in southwest England, Johnson says that while it doesn't look as if this particular disease came from a lab, the world needs to keep an open mind.
Though the notion was once dismissed by most public health experts and government officials, the hypothesis that Covid-19 leaked accidentally from a Chinese lab is now under a new US investigation ordered by President Joe Biden. The G-7 leaders endorsed calls for a timely, transparent, expert-led, and science-based further investigation into the origins of the coronavirus.
Many scientists still believe the virus most likely jumped from animals to humans.
