China was the first country to report COVID-19 cases, so the global tracing of virus origins was first conducted here in China, said Liang Wannian, team leader from the Chinese side of the joint expert team.

Speaking at a press briefing by the Chinese expert members of the joint study, Liang noted that origin tracing of the virus is a continuous work.

He added that further tracing of COVID-19 origins will be carried out around the globe, based on the findings of the study in China.
