You look at the laboratory samples and laboratory studies and you put all this together, you sit together, you go through it systematically and put your minds together and say, okay, this is what we know so far, what do we need to know, and how are we going to find out those things."

Storyline


World Health Organization (WHO) spokeswoman Margaret Harris on Wednesday stressed the importance of global collaboration in researching the origins of COVID-19, ahead of a WHO expert team's visit to central China's Wuhan City on Thursday.

A team of 10 experts will visit Wuhan - the city worst affected by the coronavirus outbreak when it first struck China. Later research found the presence of the virus in Spain, Italy, and the U.S. earlier than what was first reported in the central Chinese city, demonstrating how much is still unknown about the virus.

In a recent exclusive interview with China Global Television Network (CGTN), Harris explained that part of the expert team's investigation will be about the animal source of the coronavirus.

"So you look at animal health, what's going on in the different animal populations, which animals are most similar in terms of this particular disease to humans. Then you try to look at serology in the animals, are there antibodies? You look at the stories of the people who were first infected, where did they go, who were they in contact, what happened. You look at the laboratory samples and laboratory studies and you put all this together, you sit together, you go through it systematically and put your minds together and say, okay, this is what we know so far, what do we need to know, and how are we going to find out those things," she said.

Harris also applauded the unprecedented level of global solidarity amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which she says has increased the chances of discovering the origin of the virus.

"Now, having said that, our scientists are equipped, better equipped, are super smart, are really good at what they do. I mean, in a year, we've already got vaccines against this. That's never happened. So we’re in a place where we can understand, we can learn more quickly, and we've got this fantastic global collaboration and cooperation, which also hasn't happened before. So our chances of understanding more are ever greater, especially because we've got everybody working together," she said.
