Covid-19: China questions claims of Wuhan origin ahead of WHO probe

Nov 27, 2020 21:38 IST

Battling global adversity over the coronavirus and bracing for a WHO inquiry over its origin, China on Friday claimed that just because COVID-19 cases were first reported in Wuhan does not mean the contagion originated from the central Chinese city.

Various outlets of the state-run Chinese media have been carrying reports in recent days stating that a number of imported food products from different countries, including a consignment of fish from India, were found to have traces of the COVID-19 alleging that the virus may have entered China through foreign routes.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters that the origin tracing is a complex scientific matter which requires joint efforts from the scientific community worldwide.
