Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) is going to start a re-investigation of the origin of the corona with a new team. For this a new team of 20 scientists has been formed, which will investigate China and other countries.
Through this new investigation team, WHO is ready to resume the investigation of the origin of Kovid-19. The team includes laboratory safety, biosafety experts, geneticists and veterinarians who are familiar with how viruses are transmitted by nature.
The Wall Street Journal reported that teams will look for new evidence in China and elsewhere. Earlier, in March this year, a joint investigation team of WHO-China had ruled out the possibility that the virus originated from a laboratory.
