World Health Organization (WHO) experts on Monday analyzed the information collected in interviews and tours to different sites in Wuhan, China, while probing the origin of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
Such a process includes meetings with Chinese scientists and a summary of their work, which they will present to the press before concluding next Wednesday their trip.
One of the team members, Briton Peter Daszak, expressed his satisfaction for China´s support and unrestricted access to visit the sites and people of interest during the inquiries.
According to Daszak, the work was focused on examining the first Covid-19 patients, the coronavirus link with animals and the possibility the virus was introduced through imported frozen food, as China assured. The WHO delegation is building up hypotheses with recently-obtained data and those available earlier, to deliberate where they could direct the probes.
In Daszak’s viewpoint, Wuhan was only the initial step in a task that could take many years and should encompass more in-depth studies in animals.
