A WHO-led mission in China said this week that it would further investigate whether the virus had escaped from a laboratory, a situation it considered extremely unlikely.
The United States has said it will review the mission’s findings.
“Some questions have been raised as to whether any hypotheses have been ruled out. After talking to some team members, I want to confirm that all the hypotheses remain open and require additional analysis and studies “, explains Ghebreyesus.
“Some of that work may not fall within the scope of this mission. We have always said that this mission will not find all the answers, but it has added important information, which brings us closer to understanding the origins of the COVID-19 virus “, said the head of the WHO.
In addition, experts say that the main hypotheses are that the virus came from a bat, although there are several possible scenarios for how it passed to humans, possibly first by infecting another animal species.
Former US President Donald Trump, who left office last month, said he believed the virus could have escaped from a laboratory in the Chinese city of Wuhan. China has strongly denied this and says the Wuhan Institute of Virology has not studied viruses close to COVID.
