Last week, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced a new advisory group to determine the origins of pathogens with pandemic potential, including COVID-19. Some experts suggest it will be unlikely to figure out if the origin of COVID-19 can be found in nature or linked to a lab leak. This is due to the “imbalanced” group of experts and China’s resistance to cooperating with WHO.
The 26 member panel will be called the Scientific Advisory Group for the Origins of Novel Pathogens (SAGO). Four of those members took part in a WHO-led team that stayed four weeks in Wuhan with Chinese scientists. A Canadian molecular biologist at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT, Alina Chan said she does not have much faith in the team.
Chan explained “Based on the outcomes of the China-WHO joint study and the persistent lack of access to data and information in China, I’m not confident that the current list of SAGO members will make any headway into the origin of COVID-19,” Chan developed a website to track the novel coronavirus’s genetic evolution.
