La OMS publicará hallazgos de investigación sobre Covid-19

February 8, 2021 - Los hallazgos principales de una investigación patrocinada por la Organización Mundial de la Salud en China para identificar la fuente zoonótica del coronavirus y su ruta hacia la población humana se publlicarán el 10 de febrero o antes.

Peter Daszak, a New York-based zoologist assisting the WHO mission, said he anticipates the main findings will be released before his planned Feb. 10 departure from the Chinese city of Wuhan, where Covid-19 mushroomed in December 2019. Daszak said the 14-member group worked with experts in China and visited key hot spots and research centres to uncover “some real clues about what happened”, according to Bloomberg News.

Investigators want to know how the SARS-CoV-2 virus – whose closest known relative came from bats 1,600km (1,000 miles) away – spread explosively in Wuhan before causing the worst contagion in more than a century. Daszak said the investigation heralds a turning point in pandemic mitigation.
