France does not say COVID-19 is linked to the Wuhan research laboratory


PARIS (Reuters) – France said Friday that there is so far no evidence of a link between the new coronavirus and the work of the P4 research laboratory in the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the current pandemic has begun.

“We would like to point out that there is to date no factual evidence corroborating the information recently published in the American press which establishes a link between the origins of COVID-19 and the work of the P4 laboratory in Wuhan, China,” Said an official from the office of President Emmanuel Macron.
