Wuhan: A team of World Health Organization experts left a two-week quarantine in Wuhan Thursday to start a delayed, closely watched probe into the origins of the coronavirus.

Members of the group, all wearing face masks, got onto a bus that zipped them away from the hotel where they had spent their mandatory quarantine, according to AFP reporters at the scene.
