Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is applying pressure on the WHO after they supported the re-opening of the Chinese wet markets, according to the Daily Mail.
These wet markets likely caused the coronavirus pandemic due to the poor condition of hygiene and the rather exotic palate of those who shop in these markets.
"Australia and the world will be looking to organizations like the WHO to ensure lessons are learned from the devastating coronavirus outbreak," said Morrison.
"There must be transparency in understanding how it began in Wuhan and how it was transmitted. We also need to fully understand and protect against the global health threat posed by places like wet markets," he added.
Some scientists believe the virus originated at Wuhan's Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in the Hubei Province which is where coronavirus first struck.
Morrison has often been critical of the Chinese wet markets, calling them a "real and significant problem wherever they exist."
"These wet markets can be a real problem when it comes to what can occur in those markets. And I think from a world health point of view, this is something the World Health Organization should do something about."
Both SARS and avian influenza also emerged from wet markets, meaning the coronavirus is the third pandemic deriving from these practices. For this reason, it is unclear why the WHO still supports their existence.
