The Wuhan laboratory in China is one of 50 in the world with the highest level of biosafety.

An unanswered question.

That remains the origin of the pandemic since it was first detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan almost a year and a half ago.

Many scientists argue that it most likely occurred after jumping from an animal to a human, but in the last week there is much talk again on the theory that the pathogen could leave a laboratory.

Specifically, from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
