The World Health Organization has announced a new expert panel that will investigate the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic. The advisory body will include 26 scientists from around the world, including one expert from the U.S. and one from China. WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the panel will also investigate the origins of future outbreaks.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus: “The emergence of new viruses with the potential to spark epidemics and pandemics is a fact of nature. And while SARS-CoV-2 is the latest such virus, it will not be the last.”
