A team of the World Health Organization (WHO) has not found any evidence of large outbreaks that could be related to Covid 19 prior to December 2019 in Wuhan or anywhere else in China.

“Team found evidence of wider circulation outside the Wuhan Huanan market in December 2019. Investigation has uncovered new information but has not dramatically changed the picture of Covid outbreak,” said Ben Embarek, WHO’s Food Safety and Animal Disease Expert

He said the findings suggest that the laboratory incidents hypothesis is extremely unlikely to explain the introduction of the virus to the human population.
