WHO has made a new investigation team to look for the COVID origin.

A group of 26 experts will conduct studies on various parts of the world to determine the origin of the virus. Michael Ryan, the WHO’s emergencies director, said it may be the “last chance to understand the origins of this virus” in a collegiate manner.

The WHO announced earlier this year it would set up a Scientific Advisory Group for the Origins of Novel Pathogens (Sago). In August, China rejected the WHO’s calls for a renewed inquiry on the ground into the origins of Covid-19.

The 26 members the WHO has put forward were chosen from a field of more than 700 applications and are drawn from a range of scientific disciplines. The group of experts includes virologists of top biological labs. 

The pandemic has killed more than 4.85 million people and battered the global economy since the virus was first detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan in December 2019. WHO initially opened an investigation with the team to look into the matter however, it did not yield any results.
