The U.S. intelligence report on coronavirus origins is "anti-science," "unreliable" and "contains predetermined conclusions," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said during a press briefing on Tuesday.

"Everyone knows that origins tracing requires science, not intelligence. It is anti-science in itself to trace the origins of the virus by using intelligence agencies,” Wang said, urging the U.S. to "revert to the right track" and "stop politicizing the issue."

"Tracing the origins of the virus requires unity, not framing," he added.
