WHO rules out ‘very unlikely’ Wuhan lab leak as COVID source

Head of the World Health Organization-led team of experts investigating the origins of COVID-19, Peter Ben Embarek, said, Tuesday that it was “very unlikely” that a leak from a laboratory was the source of the outbreak.

During its investigation in the central Chinese city where the virus first emerged, the team visited the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the subject of a number of conspiracy theories that claim a lab leak caused the city’s outbreak.

The team had earlier ruled out non-human source as cause of the virus outbreak.
