A team of experts from the World Health Organization (WHO) has completed a 14-day quarantine, and now they will begin an investigation into the origin of Covid-19. This was reported by the Voice of America.
During the two weeks of isolation, WHO specialists, led by Peter Ben Embarick, who specializes in the transmission of animal diseases to humans, tried to work in hotel rooms via video link. On January 28, they were able to leave their hotel suits for the first time.
"13 specialists have two weeks to talk in person with employees of Chinese research institutes, hospitals, as well as with representatives of the fish market, which is called the place associated with the first cases of Covid-19," the statement said.
As we reported earlier, the World Health Organization's (WHO) mission to China was announced in December. The organization intended to send a team of 10 international scientists to study the origin of Covid-19.
The mission was expected to last four or five weeks. Official Beijing, however, did not authorize the mission's entrance to the country at the beginning.
