Conservative Party Leader Erin O’Toole responded on Monday to China’s claim that the first Omicron variant case in Beijing came from mail sent from Canada.

Canadian Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos also called the allegation “extraordinary” but said experts within the Public Health Agency of Canada would investigate the claim.
Beijing reported its first case of the Omicron on Saturday.
