WHO expert says he would like to go back to Wuhan to follow up COVID-19

GENEVA, Nov 25 (Reuters) – A World Health Organization expert said on Wednesday he would like to go back to wholesale food markets in Wuhan in China to follow up initial cases of COVID-19 which emerged in the city.

Peter Ben Embarek, an expert in animal diseases, told a WHO social media briefing he would like to re-interview initial COVID-19 cases and find others who may have “important information” on where they may have picked up the virus.
