The World Health Organization will repeat its research on the origin of the new type of coronavirus.
According to Wallstreet news, WHO officials said a scientific advisory group has been set up.
And that one of its first tasks is to determine whether the coronavirus emerged from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.
It will reportedly consist of 20 experts, including laboratory safety experts, biosecurity experts, geneticists, and veterinarians.
A WHO official stated that “the priority for the new team should be data and access in the country where the first reports were disclosed.”
In the report on the origin of the Coronavirus announced by the joint work of the World Health Organization and China, it was suggested that the virus was transmitted from bats to humans through another animal.
In the report, it was found that the possibility of the coronavirus leaving the laboratory was “the least likely”, and the delegation of the World Health Organization to Wuhan completed the research, and the results were shared.
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus also made a statement on the WHO report.
It was claimed that the probability of the coronavirus leaving the laboratory was the “lowest” hypothesis, “I don’t think this assessment is comprehensive enough, with more data studies will be needed to reach more robust results.”
China has rejected calls by the World Health Organization for a new investigation into the origins of the coronavirus.
