The Wuhan pneumonia epidemic broke out in China and spread to the world. The Chinese authorities advocated that “the virus might be imported into China via cold chain logistics” in order to shirk its responsibility, and blocked international investigations into the source of the epidemic in China. The World Health Organization (WHO) expert team visited Wuhan one year after the outbreak, and agreed with the statement advocated by Beijing. It does not rule out the cold chain import of the new coronavirus into Wuhan, but after leaving China, some experts are changing their tone. Someone also broke the news that most members of the expert group felt that China’s claim that the virus was imported from abroad through cold chain logistics was “unlikely.”

According to a report by Kyodo News, members of the WHO expert team visited various locations in Wuhan, Hubei Province to investigate, and held a press conference with Chinese experts on the 9th, claiming that cold chain logistics is also included in the investigation project. This is because China It is claimed that the virus may be attached to frozen food and imported from abroad. Since this is a joint investigation, the results announced in the future will be based on the consensus of both parties. In this regard, one of the panel members, Japan’s National Institute of Infectious Diseases Director of Veterinary Science, Ken Maeda, revealed in an interview that the panel members hold a skeptical stance and most think that “the possibility is not very high.”

Maeda said that the South China Seafood Market in Wuhan, where cases were concentrated in the early stage, is “a place where the epidemic is tangible.” The expert group once told that it wanted to know the trading situation of live mammals that may become intermediate hosts. However, the Chinese government, which hinted at the illegal wildlife trade as the source of infection in January last year, stated that the investigation results showed that there were no live mammals in the market at that time. , Only admitted that the market had the edible meat of rabbits and ferret badgers.

Maeda Ken went on to say: “The expert group believes that “there should be (live mammals)”.” He also pointed out that the expert group also took out information suggesting that there may be such transactions for investigation, but failed to obtain testimony from related persons and businesses. It is difficult to grasp the actual situation when China denies it. Maeda Ken emphasized that we should investigate animals in Yunnan Province, where similar viruses have been found in bats, and Southeast Asia adjacent to the province. He also confessed that the necessary data was not collected at the beginning of the investigation, there are still many things he wants to know, and he is also “in a hurry” in terms of time.
