Th WHO report into how the Covid virus jumped to humans raises more questions than it answers…
The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) has said further investigation is needed to conclusively rule out that Covid-19 emerged from a laboratory in China.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that although a lab leak was the least likely cause, more research was needed.
The US and other countries have criticised China for failing to provide the WHO with sufficient data.
Beijing has always dismissed the allegations of a virus leak.
A report by WHO and Chinese experts released on Tuesday, said the lab leak explanation was highly unlikely and the virus had probably jumped from bats to humans via another intermediary animal.
…the reason why the ‘accidental leak from a lab’ theory has so much interest is because US experts had warned Trump midway in his Presidency about these labs…
The original Chinese government story, that the pandemic spread from a seafood market in Wuhan, was the first and therefore most widely accepted theory. But cracks in that theory slowly emerged throughout the late winter and spring of 2020. The first known case of Covid-19 in Wuhan, it was revealed in February, had no connection to the market. The Chinese government closed the market in January and sanitized it before proper samples could be taken. It wouldn’t be until May that the Chinese Centers for Disease Control disavowed the market theory, admitting it had no idea how the outbreak began, but by then it had become the story of record, in China and internationally.
