Committee is made up of scholars from the United States, China and 24 other nations
This Wednesday, the 13th, the World Health Organization (WHO) appointed 26 scientists to a new advisory board created to investigate the origins of Covid-19 and of possible new outbreaks. Called the ‘WHO Scientific Advisory Group on the Origins of New Pathogens’ (SAGO), the council should define and guide studies that could predict new pathogens with epidemic or pandemic potential. The group has scientists from the USA, gives China and from 24 other nations. They were selected from a total of 700 candidates and underwent a two-week public consultation. According to the director general of WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, a report prepared in March of this year did not clearly indicate whether the origin of Sars-CoV-2 is from a laboratory leak in Wuhan, China. According to the organization, there is not enough data for this thesis. In addition to the WHO, the US has also created a committee of intelligence agencies to discover the origins of the virus.
