A team from the World Health Organization, which is in the Chinese city of Wuhan to investigate the origins of COVID-19, has been released from quarantine.

They've already spent two weeks in the city speaking to their Chinese counterparts by video link.

The BBC's Stephen McDonell reports.

From now on, they will be able to have face-to-face meetings.

What they're doing in this investigation is looking at the research Chinese scientists have done on the ground to see what further work needs to be done to get to the bottom of how the coronavirus started -- a virus which initially brought this city to a complete shutdown for five months, 11 million people locked down.

But I don't think anybody should expect that in the coming two weeks this team is going to come out and declare we've found the origins of the virus.

It's not going to happen that quickly.
