Wuhan Covid investigator says WHO has evidence about how pandemic started

The World Health Organization (WHO) investigation into how the pandemic began is “exemplary cooperation” by the Chinese authorities.

According to the Organization’s Special Representative for Covid-19, Dr. David Nabarro, a team of WHO experts investigating the origins of the coronavirus in Wuhan is given full access to find out how the pandemic began.

And the team trying to figure out what caused the coronavirus has found evidence and will be reporting on it later this week Mirror reports.

Dr. Nabarro told Sky News that nothing was ruled out.

He said: “All websites that WHO wanted to visit are visited. There is openness to all types of communication.

“But it’s still early, that’s detective work. We assume this will take a lot longer.”

When asked if he could rule out the theory that the virus escaped from a laboratory in Wuhan, he said, “The thing about theories is that you have to have them to determine the reason why things are a certain way and manner could occur.

“I can’t rule out anything and I know the team on site and the people they talk to in China. They don’t rule anything out.”

“All options are on the table and everything is under review.”

British zoologist Peter Daszak told CNN that his team of investigators had submitted a list of places to visit and speak to without the Chinese authorities objecting.

He added that evidence of the virus’ origin has been found and is being “compounded”.

He said: “We are not rogue here, we talk to our hosts. We are in a foreign country, we are guests in China at the moment.

“This is a good, collaborative and scientific approach to learning more about the origins of Covid.”

When asked if it was possible that viruses originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology laboratory, he replied, “There is no evidence at all – but we talked about it with people in the Wuhan laboratory.

“We got really good and honest and open, informative responses because they brought this up themselves – conspiracies related to laboratory leaks that they believe have no cause.”

“We’re trying to be open to every possibility right now.

“It was nice to see the lab and you confirm your suspicions – it’s an incredibly well-built, well-designed and well-run laboratory.”

Hopefully the WHO investigation will shed some light on the origins of Covid and how the virus, believed to have started in a city living food market, has broken the world in the past 12 months has devastated.

He added, “We’re still putting evidence together, so let’s look at the animal evidence, what was sold in the market and where it came from, what types of animals it is.”

Mr. Daszak’s team has now completed visiting the sites to be visited in the field and will be spending the next few days browsing data and consulting Chinese experts.

It will then present a summary of the results at a press conference before they leave town on Wednesday.

Areas studied by WHO experts include the first cases, the association with animals and the unproven theory that the virus was brought into China on packaging made from imported frozen foods.

China has always strongly denied the possibility of a leak from the laboratory.

It has put forward unproven theories that the virus may have originated elsewhere before it was brought to Wuhan, including on imported freezer packs.
