WHO expert was 'worried' about Chinese lab near market where COVID-19 was 1st found

A WHO team's official who investigated COVID-19 origins in China's Wuhan said he was 'concerned' about safety standards of a laboratory near the seafood market where the first cases were detected

In a documentary, Ben Embarek said the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention was handling coronaviruses "without potentially having same level of expertise or safety or who knows".

But months later, when WHO released its dense report on its mission to Wuhan, the U.N. health agency concluded that a leak of the virus from the lab was “extremely unlikely” to have caused COVID-19
