BEIJING (Reuters) - A global team of scientists led by the World Health Organization arrived in China's central city of Wuhan, where COVID-19 first surfaced in late 2019, to investigate the origins of the pandemic, state television said on Thursday.

The team will spend about a month in the city, including two weeks in quarantine.
