The World Health Organization is launching a new investigation into the origins of Covid-19, months after an earlier probe ended without drawing firm conclusions, according to a report published on Sunday.

The WHO is putting together a team of some 20 scientists who will be charged with finding new evidence in China and other locales, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The group will examine whether the virus emerged from a laboratory, a theory that has been angrily rejected by China.

In December 2020, WHO investigators began visits to Wuhan, China, where the first known outbreak of the virus took place.

But their March 2021 report said they had gotten insufficient information from Chinese scientists to answer key questions about Covid-19’s origin.

In August, US intelligence agencies issued a separate report saying they also couldn’t make firm conclusions about Covid-19’s origins.
