WHO supremo Tedros urges China to to be more cooperative in finding the origin of COVID-19

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 16 Jul 2021, 08:29 pm

Geneva: WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has asked China to be more cooperative with the WHO's second phase of the investigation into the origins of Covid-19.

The WHO chief even called for more access and transparency.

WHO's first investigation into the origin of the virus ended in February.

Speaking in Geneva on Thursday, Dr Tedros was quoted as saying by BBC that  the WHO needed access to raw patient data from just before and the start of the pandemic this time around.

China did not share this data with the WHO team during the first investigation, he added.

Growing evidence is available about a leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology - one of China's top virus research labs - leading to the worldwide spread of the virus.
