The sensitive mission, which China had delayed throughout the first year of the worldwide health crisis, has a remit to explore how the virus jumped from animal to human.

Earlier, WHO blasted critics of its investigation into the origins of the Covid-19 pandemic and challenged those claiming to know better to come forward with the smoking gun.

WUHAN: Amid conspiracy theories surrounding the origin of coronavirus, a team of investigators working on behalf of the World Health Organization visited a major virus research laboratory in China's central city of Wuhan on Wednesday.

"Extremely important meeting today with staff at WIV including Dr Shi Zhengli. Key questions asked & answered.", Daszak tweeted.

The team will spend two weeks conducting field work after having completed two weeks in hotel quarantine after arrival in Wuhan.

Members of the team have met with institute researchers and management, experts, vendors, residents and media representatives, the spokesperson for China's National Health Commission, Mi Feng, told reporters at a briefing Thursday.

China has strongly denied that possibility and has also promoted unproven theories that the virus may have originated elsewhere or even been brought into the country from overseas with imports of frozen seafood tainted with the virus, a notion roundly rejected by global scientists and agencies.

Along with the institute, the World Health Organization team that includes experts from 10 nations has visited hospitals, research institutes, a traditional market tied to the outbreak and other sites.

Some scientists have called for China to release details of all coronavirus samples studied at the lab.

She has published widely in academic journals and worked to debunk theories espoused by the former Trump administration and other American officials that the virus is either a bioweapon or a "lab leak" from the institute.

Studies suggest the virus could have been transferred from mink or pangolins, but there has also been speculation that traders dealing in bat products could have carried the disease for months before it began to spread in Wuhan.

The independent team has already visited key hospitals, the regional disease control centre and the city's Huanan seafood market, where the first cluster of infections was believed to have originated late in 2019.

While the novel coronavirus that sparked the pandemic was first identified in Wuhan, Beijing has sought to cast doubt on the notion that it originated in China, pointing to imported frozen food as a possible conduit. Local lockdowns and travel restrictions are being imposed to contain new outbreaks.

Wang told reporters on Wednesday that Canada's explanation so far was "not convincing".
