After World Health Organization coronavirus investigators were barred from entering China, the team landed in the country on Thursday – more than a year after the initial outbreak, long after key sites such as the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market have been cleaned, disinfected and sealed.
Chinese officials say there were “visa” issues, but one of Beijing’s conditions was to select every expert proposed by the public health agency. Cover-ups and obfuscation by Chinese officials have slowed the response to the spread of COVID-19, and the quest to identify the origins of SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing the deadly disease that swept through the country. world, might not have consequences results.
Part of the initial outbreak appears to have taken place at the Huanan Wet Market, where a variety of wildlife, such as wolves and peacocks, were bought and sold for their meat. Some of the first patients who were diagnosed with a mysterious and deadly illness, which was later designated COVID-19, worked or spent time there.
