China trying to paint narrative that virus outbreak originated elsewhere – Report

China has imposed restrictions on the publication of academic research on the origins of the novel coronavirus, CNN reports.

According to the report, all academic papers on COVID-19 will be subject to extra vetting before publication.

A Chinese researcher, speaking on condition of anonymity, tells CNN that the move is a “coordinated effort from (the) Chinese government to control (the) narrative, and paint it as if the outbreak did not originate in China.”
