The World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned that coronavirus will not be the last pandemic.

To this end, the United Nations agency has constituted the Scientific Advisory Group for the Origins of Novel Pathogens (SAGO).

The team has the mandate to examine the origins of new pathogens including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

WHO Director-General, Dr. Tedros Ghebreyesus made the announcement at a briefing in Geneva, Switzerland.

SAGO will advise on the development of a global framework to guide studies on the origins of emerging and re-emerging pathogens.
