WHO: No COVID Circulation in Wuhan Before December 2019

Researchers from the World Health Organization (WHO) have determined that COVID-19 was most likely circulated by animals to humans, debunking the claim that the virus was man-made.

According to the WHO, there were no present cases of COVID-19 in Wuhan China prior to December 2019, when the outbreak began. 

Further research into the origins of the virus have shown that the Huanan Seafood Market was a primary location for early transmission of the virus, but that the virus did not originate from the seafood market.

This new information is contrary to theories circulated by former President Trump and others from his administration, alleging that COVID-19 had originated from the Wuhan Center for Virology or another source. 

Both the WHO and Chinese officials have commented on this, calling it “extremely unlikely” that the virus was man-made.

To date, COVID-19 has been contracted by 106 million people, and has caused 2.32 million deaths, according to John Hopkins University. 

China has published very little in the way of research on where the virus originated from, causing international concern about exactly what WHO members are allowed to see.
