WHO chief: had difficulties 'accessing raw Covid data' from China

Mar 30, 2021 23:04 IST | By Editorji News Desk

World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus welcomed the joint WHO-China report on the origins of the coronavirus on Tuesday, but noted that scientists had difficulty "accessing raw data" from China and called for further investigation of the lab leak theory.

The report assessed that the coronavirus was most likely introduced to humans through an intermediate animal host, but called for further investigation.

The comments come in the wake of an inconclusive report that has prompted concerns about transparency and the influence of the Chinese government over the investigation.
