02virus reconstruct superJumbo v2China highly appreciates the professionalism and scientific approach of the experts who prepared the report following the visit of the World Health Organization (WHO) mission to Wuhan to investigate the origin of the coronavirus.

This is stated in a statement on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the PRC.

"The Chinese side highly appreciates the commitment to science, professionalism and efforts of the Chinese and foreign experts who participated in this joint study," the statement said. The Chinese Foreign Ministry noted that finding out the sources of the origin of the coronavirus is a global task, and research needs to be carried out in many countries and regions of the world. At the same time, the diplomatic service noted that "the politicization of this issue will only seriously complicate global cooperation in the study of the sources of origin of COVID-19", as well as undermine efforts in the fight against the epidemic and lead to even more victims. In January-February, an international mission of experts investigated the origin of the pathogen COVID-19 in the Chinese city of Wuhan. The report on the results of this trip was released by WHO on March 30. It presents four versions of the origin of the infection. The most likely WHO called the transmission of coronavirus from bats to humans through an intermediary animal. A version of direct transmission of the virus from bats to humans is indicated as a possible version. According to experts, the version of the transmission of COVID-19 through chilled food is unlikely and "extremely unlikely" is the leak of the virus from a laboratory in Wuhan, RBC reports.
