  • Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “14 countries raise concern over WHO report on COVID origin” – below is their description.

    Chinese state media say the country has been vindicated by a WHO report investigating the origins of the coronavirus pandemic.

    A team of experts visited Wuhan, the first known location of the outbreak, earlier this year, and concluded that transmission from an animal was the most likely source.

    But critics, including the governments of 14 countries, have questioned the credibility of the report.

    Al Jazeera’s Katrina Yu has more from Wuhan.
