On his first day in office, President Biden rejoined the World Health Organization:

But now the Biden administration is having the same concerns that caused the Trump administration to leave the WHO. National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan has released a statement outlining the concerns and questions, and they surround the WHO’s investigation of the origins of Covid-19 in China (that began about a full year after the initial outbreak), and that country’s level of cooperation — or lack thereof:

Biden Admin: We have deep concerns about the way the early findings of the COVID-19 investigation were communicated & questions about the process used to reach them. It's imperative this report be independent, with expert findings free from intervention or alteration by the CCP. pic.twitter.com/BOqURtETQw

Shouldn’t the WHO be the one charged with looking after their own credibility and not need the U.S. to try and do it? That in and of itself speaks volumes.
Deep concerns. https://t.co/fYYpQOqwc6

So Biden rejoins WHO, even while this statement acknowledges WHO is corrupt and controlled by China. Makes sense.

The WHO has no credibility.

I don't think anyone expected Biden to question the CCP and WHO so hopefully it's not just for show https://t.co/7iTUCUbZep

China’s response: umm….nah.
Biden admin: ok, fine. But we still have those deep concerns.
