WHO named the most likely hypothesis for the transmission of COVID-19 to humans

The World Health Organization (WHO) has named the transmission of COVID-19 from an intermediate carrier to humans as the most likely hypothesis for the origin of the pandemic. This was during a press conference in Wuhan, said the head of the international group of WHO experts Peter Ben Embarek.

“The initial results of our study show that the transmission of the virus from an intermediate carrier is the most likely version and requires additional research, more careful and targeted study,” said the expert.

An outbreak of pneumonia COVID-19 caused by a novel coronavirus was first recorded in December 2019 in Wuhan. Initially, it was believed that the source of the new infection was the seafood market. At the same time, the WHO stated that it did not have verified information that this market was indeed the source of the coronavirus. Reports also began to emerge that the infection began to spread from the laboratory of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

China has been accused of hiding the outbreak, trying to silence doctors who tried to raise the alarm, and belatedly informing the world about what happened. Beijing was also blamed for obstructing an external investigation into the origin of the virus.
