Asked to answer to the letter, Tarik Jasarevic, a spokesman for the W.H.O., replied in an electronic mail that the group of specialists that had gone to China “is working on its full report as well as an accompanying summary report, which we understand will be issued simultaneously in a couple of weeks.”

The open letter well-known that the W.H.O.’s analysis was a joint effort by a bunch of outside specialists, chosen by the worldwide well-being group, who labored along with Chinese scientists, and that the group’s report must be agreed on by all. The letter emphasised that the group was denied entry to some knowledge and did not look at laboratories in China.

Findings by the group, the letter stated, “while potentially useful to a limited extent, represent neither the official position of the W.H.O. nor the result of an unrestricted, independent investigation.”

Without naming him, the letter criticized Peter Daszak, an skilled in animal illnesses and their connection to human well-being, who’s the top of EcoHealth Alliance. The letter linked to articles about Dr. Daszak and said he had beforehand stated his conviction {{that a}} pure origin of the virus was greater than doubtless.

Dr. Daszak said the letter’s push to investigate a lab origin for the virus was a spot “supported by political agendas.”

“I strongly urge the global community to wait for the publication of the report from the W. H.O. mission,” he added.

Filippa Lentzos, a senior lecturer in science and worldwide security, at King’s College London, and one in all many signers of the letter, said, “I think in order to get a credible investigation, it has to be more of a global effort in the sense that it should be taken to the U.N. General Assembly where all the nations of the world are represented and can vote on whether or not to give a mandate to the U.N. secretary-general, to carry out this kind of investigation.”
