WHO to release report on COVID-19 origin soon

(VOVWORLD) - The World Health Organization (WHO) says the report on its mission to Wuhan to trace the origin of the coronavirus will be ready in a few days.

The agency was now fact checking and translating the document, Peter Ben Embarek, a Danish scientist and WHO program manager who was involved in the trip, said on Friday.

Michael Ryan, executive director of the WHO’s health emergencies program, said the report would first be sent to member states for discussion before it was released to the public.

The report was expected to be released on March 16, while an interim report was scrapped amid tensions between China and the US over transparency.
