W.H.O demands answers from China – what’s the truth of COVID’s origin?



The World Health Organization is demanding answers for the origin of coronavirus and is asking China to be ‘transparent’

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says he is asking China to be more transparent as scientists search for the origins of the virus.

A WHO-led team spent four weeks in and around the central city of Wuhan with Chinese researchers and confirmed in a joint report in March that the virus had probably been transmitted from bats to humans through another animal.

The report stated that “introduction through a laboratory incident was considered to be an extremely unlikely pathway

Countries including the United States and some scientists haven’t been satisfied

“We ask China to be transparent and open and to cooperate,”

WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a news conference on Thursday.

Ghebreyesus said there had been a “premature push” to rule out the theory that the coronavirus might have escaped from a Chinese government lab in Wuhan, leading to the global pandemic which started in 2020.

“We owe it to the millions who suffered and the millions who died to know what happened.”

China’s defensive response

China has called the theory that the virus may have escaped from a Wuhan laboratory “absurd” and said repeatedly that “politicising” the issue will hamper investigations.

The WHO boss will brief WHO’s 194 member states on Friday regarding a proposed second phase of study.
