Since the virus outbreak first came to light in Wuhan in December, there has been speculation about whether the viral strain originated from China's Prime Minister (WIV) or his nearby seafood market Huanan. The United States has launched an investigation into whether the deadly virus escaped from WIV.
China has vigorously rejected the allegations.
