The Chinese authorities launched an investigation into the occurrence of coronavirus infection, but experts from the World Health Organization (WHO) were not invited to take part in it. This was announced to Sky News by the representative of the organization in China, Goden Galea.
“We know that a national investigation is already underway, but at this stage we were not invited to participate,” Galea said. According to him, WHO continues to make inquiries about the investigation to the health authorities and authorities in China.
At the same time, there is no reason to refuse to participate in the organization, Galea said. He noted that the WHO did not doubt the natural origin of the virus.

At the same time, the US Department of State Intelligence and Research Bureau did not support the version of the artificial origin of the infection, indicating that there was no evidence of coronavirus from the laboratory.
US President Donald Trump, in turn, said that he had information that allows him to say that the source of infection is a Chinese laboratory.
