WHO team visits virology institute in Wuhan

"We are looking forward to meeting with all the key people here and asking all the important questions that need to be asked," said Peter Daszak, president of the EcoHealth Alliance and member of the investigation team, speaking from his car as it drove in.

The institute has been at the centre of a number of conspiracy theories claiming that the first coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan at the end of 2019 was caused by a laboratory leak.
