WHO says ‘will do everything’ to discover origin of Covid-19Abdul Gh Lone 30 November 2020 0 COMMENTS
The World Health Organization insisted Monday it would do everything possible to find the animal origins of Covid-19.
“We want to know the origin and we will do everything to know the origin,” WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters, urging critics who have accused the agency of handing the reins of the probe to China to stop “politicising” the issue.
The World Health Organization chief also voiced deep concern over a sharp increase in Covid-19 cases and deaths in Brazil in recent weeks.
“I think Brazil has to be very, very serious,” WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters, after fresh cases in the country jumped from around 10,000 per day in early November to more than 50,000, and as the daily death rate shot up nearly ninefold in a week.
