Washington: The World Health Organization said that there is no evidence of coronovirus circulation in any animal species in China, with the United States refusing to accept the latest findings by the global health body, saying that it can independently measure its intelligence Will verify the results using.
“We look forward, again, to see reports, to look at the underlying data, to use what we may have based on our own intelligence and analysis to find out what the WHO has found And to reach their own conclusions. ” Ned Price, US State Department spokesman, said on Tuesday (local time).
He continued, “Clearly, the Chinese, at least the heritophore, has not offered the expected transparency that we need and that, as important, the international community needs so that we can see these types of epidemics happening again.” To stop it. ”
Meanwhile, the comment was condemned by WHO expert Peter Daszak, who requested people to “not rely too heavily on US Intel”.
In a tweet, he said, “Now, this. Joe Biden has to look tough on China. Please don’t rely too much on US Intel: swiftly under Trump and misjudged in many aspects.”
After a team of experts from the World Health Organization began investigating the origin of COVID-19 in Wuhan, the Global Health Organization said on Tuesday that there was no evidence of coronovirus circulation in any animal species in China.
Speaking at a press conference, the head of the WHO mission in Wuhan, Peter Ben Ambreck, said that four hypotheses on how the virus spreads are repeated, but “the hypothesis of laboratory phenomena is unlikely to explain the introduction of the virus into human populations”. .
“It is not possible to pinpoint any animal species as a potential reservoir for this disease, and they indicate that at present and even in 2019 it does not appear that any animal species in the country had the virus in circulation. ” They said.
He further noted that “four main hypotheses or groups of hypotheses” have been identified as to how COVID-19 virus can be introduced among humans.
There are four major hypotheses: direct zoonotic spillover; Introduction through intermediary host species; Food chain, frozen food products, surface transmission; And finally a laboratory-related incident, Sputnik quoted him as saying.
“Our preliminary findings suggest that introduction through a mediated host species is the most likely pathway and one that will require more study and more specific targeted research … The findings suggest that the hypothesis of a laboratory event introduced the virus It is very unlikely to be interpreted in human populations, ”the WHO expert said.
Asking whether the virus leaked from the Institute of Virology of Wuhan, he said, “We also looked at the state of Wuhan’s Institute of Virology … laboratory and laboratory, and it was very unlikely that anyone escaped from such a place Could. ” . We also know that lab incidents are certainly extremely rare. ”
