    The World Health Organization will soon release its first report outlining its investigation into the origin of the coronavirus.

    A team of scientists spent one month studying the outbreak in the Chinese city of Wuhan.

    But many have raised questions about the investigation, saying the team was given too little access and arrived too late.

    Al Jazeera’s Katrina Yu has this report from Beijing, China.
