WHO chief expects collaboration of China, others on virus origin follow-up Updated: 2021-09-29 07:05:16 KST

The head of the WHO has said that he expects all countries, including China, to collaborate in the second phase of investigations into the origins of the coronavirus.
According to Reuters WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus speaking at a Geneva-based event on trade and COVID-19, added that he hoped that this second phase, which follows an initial investigation in China last February would begin as soon as possible.
He has again requested access to the suspected lab in Wuhan, seeking also to take another look into the wet market believed to have had the first case of COVID-19.
Findings from the previous investigation showed that it was unlikely that the virus came from the lab in Wuhan, but according to experts, that operation was limited by intervention from the Chinese government.
