Washington, D.C. — House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-TX) and House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy Rodgers (R-WA) issued the following statement today in advance of the World Health Organization’s Intergovernmental Negotiating Body meeting this week. 

“The World Health Organization has a major credibility problem. Instead of leading a thorough and trustworthy investigation into the origins of the pandemic, the WHO has repeatedly kowtowed to the Chinese Communist Party and is complicit in its COVID-19 coverup. As the WHO begins the process to move this pandemic treaty forward, America’s sovereign rights and biomedical leadership and innovation must be protected. The CCP also must be held accountable. The Biden administration must make these their top priorities in the pandemic accord negotiations.”
