“Identifying the origin of emerging viral disease has proven complex in past epidemics in different countries,” a WHO release stated here. It added that a well planned series of scientific researches would advance the understanding of animal reservoirs and the route of transmission to humans.
“The process is an evolving endeavor which may lead to further international scientific research and collaboration globally,” it said without specifying the likely dates of the visit.
