Global News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19: WHO makes another push to understand the pandemic’s origins” – below is their description.

As the struggle continues on finding out where COVID-19 came from, a new advisory panel is being formed by international scientists at the World Health Organization (WHO), focused on understanding the origins of novel pathogens like the virus.

The WHO attempted to uncover COVID-19’s origins earlier this year, sending scientists to China for a month to investigate – but Beijing was accused of meddling in the fact-finding.

As Reggie Cecchini explains, the organization warns this effort could be the last chance to find the beginning of the pandemic.
