[아시아경제 김유리 기자] The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported on the 12th (local time) that China refused to provide raw raw data (raw data) and customized data on early outbreak cases to the World Health Organization (WHO) investigation team trying to find the origin of Corona 19. did.

According to reports, Chinese authorities declined a request from WHO experts to provide detailed data on 174 confirmed cases in Wuhan in December 2019, in the early stages of the outbreak of Corona 19. Instead, Chinese government officials and scientists provided only their own analysis and extensive summaries of the cases, WHO investigators said.

However, the investigation team revealed that they could not access raw data for retrospective studies, a method of epidemiological investigations that look at cases from the past. Research like this is a way to self-analyze how early and how widespread Corona 19 spread in China.

WSJ China’s reluctance to provide data was evaluated as raising concerns in the international community over China’s lack of transparency in the process of finding the origin of the corona19 pandemic.

WSJ also cited the WHO investigation team on the 10th and reported that 92 people were hospitalized in Hubei Province in October 2019, two months before the official initial outbreak, with symptoms similar to Corona 19.
