WHO experts have worked out four versions of the transmission of coronavirus to humans

Experts from the World Health Organization (WHO) have worked out four versions of the transmission of coronavirus infection to humans – from an animal, an intermediate link, frozen foods, and also due to an incident in a laboratory. This was during a press conference in Wuhan, said the head of the international group of WHO experts Peter Ben Embarek.

He stressed that the option with the appearance of COVID-19 as a result of a laboratory leak was considered unlikely, so scientists do not plan to study it in the future. Among the other hypotheses, experts believe that two are the most realistic – infection from an intermediate carrier and through the surface of frozen products. These versions assume that the coronavirus could have been transported from afar.

Earlier, the WHO denied rumors about a link between vaccinations and infertility. Keith O'Brien, director of the department of the organization for immunization and vaccines, emphasized that at the moment there are no drugs that could have a similar effect.
