The World Health Organization (WHO) international expert group is conducting traceability work for the COVID-19 disease in Wuhan. Today the media asked at the WHO press conference about the power of the traceability working group and when the report will be released.

They have had constructive dialogues with Chinese scientists. A lot of questions were asked, but each answer spawned more questions.

Fankhov pointed out that the international expert team is currently collating and analyzing the collected data. After all the interviews, there will be a report. This time it will be written by members of the international and Chinese teams. The WHO will not have any opinions. Written by a scientist.

Therefore, this report cannot give all the answers because it is impossible and it is not the WHO’s The original intention was that the WHO would provide a summary report after the visit, including the results of earlier studies, which will be announced once the report is completed.

The WHO expert team started on-site work for about two weeks on January 29. The itinerary was followed up and studied by Chinese officials. In the past few days, I have been to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the South China Seafood Wholesale Market where the epidemic broke out, and the Wuhan Jinyintan Hospital where patients were treated.

The expert team arrived at Wuhan Institute of Virology on February 3. This research institute is the most watched destination in this virus traceability work. Outsiders have suspected that the virus leaked from this research institute, which in turn detonated a global epidemic.

Shi Zhengli has long studied bats carrying coronaviruses. In 2017, they found that bats carry SARS-related viruses. She was also the first expert in China to isolate the COVID-19 virus. She has also been questioned by the outside world as the key figure in the virus leaked by the Wuhan Institute of Virology. (Editor: Xu Ruicheng)
