Peter Ben Embarek, Head of WHO investigation team to China, said they will publish the full and final report with a summary of its findings instead of a temporary report as previously announced by WHO chief Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

On February 12, the WHO chief said all hypotheses on the origins of COVID-19 remained on the table.
