The mystery about the origin of Coronavirus is still intact. While another scientists believe that it has come out of the Wuhan lab, on the other hand it is also being said that it has reached humans through animals. In such a situation, the World Health Organization (WHO) has said that it is planning again to investigate the origin of COVID-19. At the same time, China is furious over this and it has said that it is surprised to hear that the WHO is planning an investigation. It is worth noting that even in February, the WHO had conducted an investigation regarding the corona origin.
A senior Chinese health official said he was surprised by the World Health Organization’s (WHO) plan to investigate the origins of COVID-19. National Health Commission Deputy Minister Zeng Yixin on Thursday also dismissed speculation that the virus had spread from the ‘Wuhan Institute of Virology’ lab. The head of the WHO said last week that it was too early to rule out a possible link between the global pandemic and the leak of the coronavirus from a Chinese lab. Zeng called this theory a rumour, which is against science.
WHO demands transparency from Chinese authorities

Apart from this, transparency has been demanded from the Chinese authorities regarding the origin. Significantly, there is a dispute among experts regarding the origin of the virus. Some experts say that this virus was being prepared in a lab in Wuhan and then due to carelessness in its maintenance, the virus came out and spread. At the same time, there is a section of experts who believe that it has spread to humans through animals.
