The suspense about the origin of the Corona epidemic, which has wreaked havoc all over the world for two years, continues even today. Although the world’s leading experts have blamed China for this, but China is not ready to accept it. The World Health Organization has once again formed a group to find out. This group will go to Wuhan and investigate the initial cases.
hear the news
In March this year, a team of the World Health Organization (WHO) stayed for four weeks in the city of Wuhan, China, but could not reach any concrete results. This time the World Health Organization has asked China to provide data related to the initial cases. Along with this, the WHO has also said that this may be the last attempt to find out about the origin of the corona virus.
At the same time, the World Health Organization team, after the first investigation, said in the report released in March this year that the corona virus may have been transmitted from bats to humans through some other animal, but more research is still needed, because of the epidemic. There was a problem with the investigation due to the lack of data from the initial days. In such a situation, the Wuhan lab should be audited.
World Health Organization created a new group
Taking this sequence forward, the health organization has formed a new expert group. World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Grebreyesus said that out of 700 applications received from around the world, 26 experts have been selected keeping in mind their world-class experience. These are related to animal health, clinical medicine, virology and genomics.
The first case came in December 2019
The first case of corona was reported in December 2019 in Wuhan city of China and it is feared that from there the virus spread all over the world. However, China has repeatedly denied that the virus did not leak from Wuhan’s lab.
