NO INDICATION OF COVID IN WUHAN BEFORE DEC 2019, LAB LEAK VIRUS THEORY ‘EXTREMELY UNLIKELY’: WHO

In a press briefing today, WHO scientists shed some light on the explosive spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in Wuhan.

There is insufficient evidence to determine that coronavirus was being spread in China’s central Wuhan before December 2019, a joint World Health Organization (WHO) and Chinese expert mission into the origins of the Covid-19 pandemic in Wuhan said on Tuesday.

“There is no indication of the transmission of the Sars-Cov-2 in the population of the period before Dec 2019,” said Liang Wannian, head of the China team, at a press briefing, adding that there was “not enough evidence” to determine if the virus had spread in the city prior to that.
