China must provide access for Covid origin investigators: Biden

US President Joe Biden has said China has to provide access to investigators trying to determine whether the outbreak of the coronavirus occurred in nature or was the result of “an experiment gone awry in a lab”.

“We have to have access,” Biden told reporters after attending a Group of Seven leaders summit in Britain.

A lack of transparency might produce another pandemic, he said.

The team says the Manchester City player tested positive in a test taken on Saturday. He has been placed in isolation.

India holds vaccination drive for people with disabilities

Authorities in an Indian city have organised a special drive-through vaccination camp for disabled people in a bid to address low vaccination rates, especially among more vulnerable members of society, Reuters reports.

Organisers of the weekend campaign in Ahmedabad, the biggest city in Gujarat state, aim to vaccinate 500 disabled people, who often struggle to book slots and get access to vaccination centres.

People taking advantage of the offer queued up at the centre in vehicles, wheelchairs, and on customised mopeds for their free Covid-19 vaccine shots. "The vaccination process is now more convenient," said Mahendra Chudasma, a 45-year-old man who is visually impaired.
