Good News: WHO Study, Backed By China, Absolves China

See, the World Health Organization, which is totally not in the pocket of China, says that it was definitely not bio-research that caused COVID19, as stated by China

AP Exclusive: WHO report says animals likely source of COVID

A joint World Health Organization-China study on the origins of COVID-19 says that transmission of the virus from bats to humans through another animal is the most likely scenario and that a lab leak is “extremely unlikely,” according to a draft copy obtained by The Associated Press.

The findings offer little new insight into how the virus first emerged and leave many questions unanswered. But the report does provide more detail on the reasoning behind the researchers’ conclusions.

The team proposed further research in every area except the lab leak hypothesis — a speculative theory that was promoted by former U.S. President Donald Trump among others. It also said the role played by a seafood market where human cases were first identified was uncertain. (snip)

The report, which is expected to be made public Tuesday, is being closely watched since discovering the origins of the virus could help scientists prevent future pandemics — but it’s also extremely sensitive since China bristles at any suggestion that it is to blame for the current one.

See? China, I mean the WHO, say the lab leak theory is not credible. I’m totes convinced!

Matthew Kavanagh of Georgetown University said the report deepened the understanding of the virus’s origins, but more information was needed.

“It is clear that that the Chinese government has not provided all the data needed and, until they do, firmer conclusions will be difficult,” he said in a statement.

Last year, an AP investigation found the Chinese government was strictly controlling all research into its origins. And repeated delays in the report’s release have raised questions about whether the Chinese side was trying to skew its conclusions.

But China, I mean the WHO, is totally fine with this.

Still, suspicion of China has helped fuel the theory that the virus escaped from a lab in Wuhan, the Chinese city where the virus was first identified. The report cited several reasons for all but dismissing that possibility.

It said that such laboratory accidents are rare, that the labs in Wuhan were well-managed and there is no record of viruses closely related to the coronavirus in any laboratory before December 2019.

So, rare, meaning they happen. And China cleaned it all up. If China even really let anyone look at the lab. Former CDC head Dr. Robert Redfield says that the most likely scenario is that it did escape from the Wuhan lab. Being China, that is the most likely scenario. WHO covered for China from the get-go, and, for some reason (probably Trump Derangement Syndrome, having to back the opposite of anything Trump says), the U.S. media decided to take China’s side. And few of the other stories that came out yesterday and this morning show any type of skepticism over this joint WHO-China report.

    We do know that both Ebola and HIV crossed over from other species
    Teach you were wrong about the severity of covid I think you should be more willing to accept what is comdidetrd the best scientific explanation
