The head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adanom Ghebreyesus, assessed the version about the leak of the coronavirus from the laboratory. He expressed his opinion at the G7 leader’s summit, writes the Daily Mail.
He noted that he does not rule out a laboratory leak of SARS-CoV-2. Gebreyesus recalled that at least 174 million people were infected with the coronavirus infection, and 3.75 million died from its consequences. “I think these people should find out where this virus came from. They deserve it, “ said the head of the WHO.
According to Gebreyesus, China did not have the necessary “transparency and cooperation” at the initial stage of the investigation into the origin of SARS-CoV-2. “There were difficulties with the exchange of data, especially raw data,” he concluded.
Earlier, scientists from the United States announced a proof of the artificial origin of the coronavirus. Experts found that SARS-CoV-2 has a genome sequence in the CGG-CGG combination, often used to increase the contagiousness and lethality of viruses. Experts note that it is a kind of beacon that allows you to track the insertion in the laboratory since it is extremely rare in nature.
At the end of March, the World Health Organization (WHO) released a report on the results of a trip to Wuhan, China, to find out the origin of the coronavirus. The report says the pandemic is most likely not the result of a leak from the lab.
