    One of the WHO experts who’ve been on a mission in Wuhan to research the coronavirus origins has accused the media of “twisting” team members’ comments. Earlier this week, The Wall Street Journal and the New York Times quoted the team as saying Chinese authorities refused to provide raw data – such as patient records. However, Peter Daszak, a zoologist and member of the WHO-China research team, said the team got access to critical data and felt trust and openness during the mission. He and another team member have criticized the New York Times for misleading the public.
