WHO team arrives in Wuhan to search for pandemic origins

WHO team arrives in Wuhan to search for pandemic origins : Google

A global team of researchers arrived Thursday in the Chinese city where the coronavirus pandemic was first detected to conduct a sensitive investigation into its origins.

The 10-member team sent to Wuhan by the World Health Organization was approved by President Xi Jinping’s government after months of diplomatic wrangling that prompted an unusual public complaint by the head of the WHO.


Scientists suspect the virus that has killed 1.9 million people since late 2019 jumped to humans from bats or other animals, most likely in China’s southwest.

The ruling Communist Party, stung by complaints it allowed the disease to spread, says the virus came from abroad, possibly on imported seafood, but scientists reject that.
