World Health Organization (WHO) director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on February 11 that all theories related to the origin of the new corona virus (also known as the Chinese virus, COVID-19), include both the virus leak from the laboratory, which deserves further investigation. TTedros’s claim goes against its denial “Virus leaked from the lab“Which his organization announced two days earlier.
According to the Daily Caller reported on February 11, Tedros Adhanom’s statement came two days after the joint press conference of the WHO-China joint group. This Wuhan epidemic origin investigation team said the virus theory leaked from the laboratory was “It’s very unlikely“, Not worth learning more. They, on the other hand, proposed to conduct further research on the theory proposed by the Chinese side, for example the virus was likely from elsewhere to be introduced into Wuhan.

- WHO expert: The virus is not from Wuhan laboratory
Mr. Tedros Adhanom said: “Someone reminds me of some issues, whether some theories have been abandoned. What I want to clarify is, all theories are still open, need to study more steps “.
This WHO investigation team has yet to release a report explaining why they said it is highly unlikely that further investigation into the Wuhan Virus Research Institute (which is conducting research on bat corona viruses before pandemic outbreak).
There has been a case of a deadly virus leaked from a laboratory in China in the past. In 2014, the first SARS virus was leaked twice from the Chinese Virus Research Institute in Beijing.
About a year after Wuhan reported its first case, the WHO conducted a field investigation of the origin of COVID-19 in China. According to CNBC, the investigation of this investigation team in China is always in a confidential state.
WHO spokesman Tarik Jasarevic told the Daily Caller that the WHO report is expected to be published in “next few days ”.
Scientists and the Biden government have condemned the WHO conclusion, because this conclusion says that resources should not be abandoned and investigated the virus theory leaked from the laboratory.
Richard H. Ebright, an American molecular biologist at Rutgers University, told the Daily Caller: “The WHO delegation is a disguise. They are not reliable. Their members willingly – moreover, at least in one case, they enthusiastically – participated in spreading false information.
State Department spokesperson Ned Price said on February 9 that the Biden administration will not reach any conclusions on the results of the WHO investigation team until they release the complete report.
On February 9, Dr. Peter Daszak, the only US member of the WHO investigation team, said he felt “disappointed”With Ned Price spokesman Ned Price, also said in a tweet that US intelligence about the origin of COVID-19 should not be trusted. Before the White House examines the WHO report, you should have full confidence in the WHO investigation team conclusions.
Mr. Peter Daszak has been condemned for joining the WHO expert group. Before the outbreak, he worked closely with the Wuhan Virus Research Institute and the leading bat corona virus researcher.
In an interview on the Podcast program weeks before the first case of COVID-19 infection in Wuhan was reported, Mr. Peter Daszak discussed how easy editing of the corona virus gene on bats in the lab is like how. The supporter of this type of experiment, also called functional enhancement research, says it is a useful tool for creating treatments for future flare-ups. However, some virologists say this is too dangerous, because it carries the risk of introducing a new virus into the human body.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Mr. Peter Daszak is the president of the non-profit organization “EcoHealth Alliance” (EcoHealth Alliance). The foundation used US taxpayer grants to send nearly $ 600,000 to the Wuhan Virus Research Institute from 2014 to 2019. The money was used to research projects on bat corona viruses. in China.
Ms. Thach Chinh Le, known in China as “The Bat Woman”, once told Scientific American in March last year that after first learning about the epidemic in December 2019, she was worried. about the virus being leaked from her lab in Wuhan, so she lost sleep.
