Members of the WHO team visit the Hubei Animal Disease Control and Prevention Center in Wuhan on February 2.
(CNN)Investigators from the World Health Organization (WHO) looking into the origins of coronavirus in China have discovered signs the outbreak was much wider in Wuhan in December 2019 than previously thought, and are urgently seeking access to hundreds of thousands of blood samples from the city that China has not so far let them examine. The lead investigator for the WHO mission, Peter Ben Embarek, told CNN in a wide-ranging interview that the mission had found several signs of the more wide-ranging 2019 spread, including establishing for the first time there were over a dozen strains of the virus in Wuhan already in December.
The team also had a chance to speak to the first patient Chinese officials said had been infected, an office worker in his 40s, with no travel history of note, reported infected on December 8.
And then there is this report from Rebel News in Canada (see video below) where a number of Canadian military athletes got sick when they attended these games and were quarantined when they got home …. two months before the Wuhan Covid outbreak became public.
