WHO Expert: No Evidence That COVID-19 Originated From Chinese Seafood Market

A member of the World Health Organisation (WHO) expert team, Vladimir Dedkov, says COVID-19 may not have originated from Wuhan’s Huanan seafood market even though the virus may have spread fast at the market.

The seafood market was linked to an early cluster of COVID-19 cases, but scientists are yet to come to an unequivocal conclusion with respect to the role it played in the contagion.

Public access to the market has been restricted since it was closed at the beginning of 2020.

After several delays, a team of WHO experts had visited the market on January 31, 2021.

“There is no evidence that the virus originated there but hypothetically, there are all conditions for the spread of the virus there,“ Dedkov said.

“Of course, it was important for our mission to visit this facility, talk to our colleagues and see how everything is organised there.”

Dedkov also refuted the theory of a virus leakage while visiting the Wuhan Institute of Virology along with nine other WHO experts on Wednesday.

“The laboratory is perfectly equipped,” he said.

“It is hard for me to imagine that something could have leaked from there.”
