Group of scientists slam WHO for their report into origins of COVID-19 in Wuhan

A group of scientists have slammed the World Health Organisation (WHO) for their report into the origins of COVID-19 in Wuhan and demanded a further investigation.

According to express.co.uk, scientist Lord Ridley said that the WHO’s investigation into the origins of Corona virus in China is ‘farcical’.

The WHO report on the origins of Corona virus was released in March and concluded that it is extremely unlikely that the virus, which has killed millions across the world, originated in a lab in China.

The report found that transmission of the virus from bats to humans through another animal is the most likely scenario.

However, over a dozen countries raised concerns over the report, arguing that the WHO team was significantly delayed and lacked access to complete, original data and samples.

A report by the WHO concluded there were no links between the virus and the suspected lab in Wuhan.
