The World Health Organization (WHO) has never requested access to labs in Wuhan, the Chinese city in which coronavirus originated, in order to investigate a source of the pandemic, China's National Health Commission said on Friday, APA reports citing Teltrader.

Earlier in May, a spokesman for the United Nation's agency Tarik Jasarevic stated that the WHO would welcome an invitation from China to take part in research on the origin of COVID-19.

Previously, the United States noted that the infection originated in Wuhan labs but the WHO asserted that Washington provided no evidence for such claims.
