The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Wednesday that a new working group could be the last chance to find the origins of covid-19.

The organization nominated 26 experts to join the team, the Scientific Advisory Group on the Origins of New Pathogens (SAGO).

More than a year and a half since the virus was detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the question of how it first arose remains unanswered.

The team will investigate whether the virus passed from animals to humans in Wuhan markets or was leaked in a laboratory accident.
