Bloomberg: The World Health Organization links the emergence of the Corona virus to the animal trade in China

Bloomberg News reported that WHO experts tend to believe that the origin of the emerging coronavirus (Coronavirus) could be related to the animal trade in China.
The agency indicated that a report is expected to be published this week, which was prepared by WHO experts who visited Wuhan, China, earlier.
The agency pointed out that the conclusions contained in the document "will be far from being final."
It is claimed that the report will provide an account that the new coronavirus may be similar in origin to the virus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome "SARS", whose original vector was bats, and it was transmitted to humans through small mammals represented by civets in the Himalayas.
Bloomberg quote the British zoologist, Peter Daszak, who was with other experts under the supervision of the World Health Organization, who had visited China earlier, as saying that the Wuhan market was selling animals that could contract the emerging coronavirus from bats and transmit it to humans.
Daszak said: "The central conclusion at this stage of work, which of course has not been completed yet, is that the same pathway in which SARS appeared was present for the emerging corona virus."
The British scientist expressed his confidence that more information about the origin of the Corona virus will appear over the next few years.
Australian microbiologist Dominic Dwyer, who was also among the group of experts that visited China, assumed that the emerging coronavirus could begin to spread from an infected animal in Wuhan.
On January 14, WHO experts arrived in Wuhan, China, to study the origin of the emerging corona virus.
Upon their arrival, they were placed in quarantine for two weeks, during which they held consultations via video link with their Chinese counterparts.
The experts visited the Huanan Seafood Market in Wuhan, where the outbreak of the Coronavirus was first recorded in December 2019, and also inspected a number of infectious disease hospitals in the city, and the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Representatives of the international group stated at the last press conference on February 9 that they had not been able to achieve any significant progress, however, in the context of joint work with their Chinese colleagues, they were able to define the main hypotheses for the emergence of the emerging corona virus.
