The world may know the truth of the coronavirus and its origin. Now the real work is going to start after two weeks of quarantine. A team from the World Health Organization visited the city of Wuhan in China on Thursday to gather evidence about the coronavirus after it came into existence.
The visit has been kept completely confidential and details of the trip have not been made public. Also, there is no information about how much China has allowed researchers to visit that particular place and how many people the WHO team can talk to.
Why is the team visiting China?
The World Health Organization team is visiting China because the first case of coronavirus came in the city of Wuhan. This team of researchers believes that investigations in Wuhan may reveal the origin of the coronavirus and take measures to avoid such an epidemic.
Researchers from around the world are eager to examine a sample of China’s seafood market and Wuhan hospital records. It is believed that this World Health Organization team will visit this market and the places where corona cases were found.
Apart from this, the team can also visit the Wuhan Institute of Virology of China. The lab was created after the SARS epidemic in 2003, which maintains an extensive collection of genetic sequences for the Bat Coronavirus. In addition, this team of researchers may also visit the local branch of the CDC in China.
What obstacles can the team face?
The biggest question here is whether China will allow researchers to see and do it. After media research, it was revealed that the Chinese government-controlled Corona-related news and research, and the researchers were not allowed so much to talk to the media.
When will the general public get the answer?
It may take several years to learn about the origin of the coronavirus. It took ten years to know the origins of Ebola and SARS. But if we get information about the coronavirus from where it was spread, then such epidemics can be avoided in the future.
