The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) has said that “all hypotheses remain open” in the search for the origin of Covid-19, despite social media witch hunts shutting down important discussions on this very topic.
During a press conference in Geneva Friday, WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and Peter Ben Embarek, the leader of the fact-finding mission to Wuhan to study the origins of the pandemic.
Embarek’s team failed to identify the source of the virus but found enough evidence and testimony to effectively put to bed the notion that it had somehow leaked from a virology laboratory in Wuhan.
“The laboratory incident hypothesis is extremely unlikely,” Embarek said. It “is not in the hypotheses that we will suggest for future studies.”
This remark comes in stark contrast to the director general’s own statement.
