Members of a World Health Organization team investigating the origins of the coronavirus pandemic visited another Wuhan hospital that had treated early COVID-19 patients on their second full day of work on Saturday, euronews reports.
"Just back from a visit at Jinyintan hospital, that specialized in infectious diseases and was designated for treatment of the first cases in Wuhan," Dutch virologist Marion Koopmans said in a post on Twitter. "Stories quite similar to what I have heard from our ICU doctors."
Zoologist Peter Daszak of the U.S. group EcoHealth Alliance, a member of the team, said in a tweet that the visit was an "important opportunity to talk directly" with medics who were fighting the virus at the critical time.
Wuhan Jinyintan Hospital was one of the city's first to deal with patients in early 2020 suffering from a then-unknown virus and vital to the disease's epidemiological history.
