The hypothesis that the virus has escaped from a Wuhan laboratory is called “nonsense”
MADRID, 22 Jul. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The deputy director of the Chinese National Health Commission, Zeng Yixin, has rejected plans announced by the World Health Organization (WHO) to continue the investigation of the origin of the coronavirus pandemic after the organization admitted that the theory of the Laboratory leakage in the emergence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in Wuhan was not sufficiently taken into account previously.
At a press conference, Zeng was surprised by these statements made by the director general of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, a week ago and called them “nonsense” and “go against science “.
Zeng has been accompanied by the director of the Wuhan national laboratory, who has affirmed that his center has not had any leaks since it was put into operation, according to the Xinhua agency.
The top leader of the WHO acknowledged that China did not share the “raw data” of the first cases detected at the end of 2019. Therefore, he asked China to “be transparent, open and cooperate, particularly in the raw data on the first days of the pandemic. “
The first case of coronavirus was detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan at the end of 2019, and since then, 104,362 cases and 4,848 deaths from the disease have been registered in the country.
