WHO team in Wuhan visits disease control centers

first_imgWUHAN, China (AP) — A World Health Organization team investigating the origins of the coronavirus pandemic has visited two disease control centers in the province where the outbreak emerged. The WHO investigators arrived in Wuhan, the Hubei provincial capital, last month to look for clues. They have visited hospitals and a seafood market where early cases were detected. The team on Monday visited the Hubei Provincial Center for Disease Control and its Wuhan city office, amid tight Chinese controls on access to information about the virus. China has sought to avoid blame for alleged missteps in its early response to the outbreak, while promoting alternative theories that the virus originated elsewhere.last_img
