FILE - In this Feb. 9, 2021, file photo, Peter Ben Embarek of the World Health Organization team holds up a chart showing pathways of transmission of the virus during a joint news conference at the end of the WHO mission in Wuhan in central China's Hubei province. A joint WHO-China study on the origins of COVID-19 says that transmission of the virus from bats to humans through another animal is the most likely scenario and that a lab leak is "extremely unlikely," according to a draft copy obtained by The Associated Press.

GENEVA, TUESDAY – The joint research team formed by the World Health Organization (WHO) has not been able to determine the origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, the cause of COVID-19. Further and more in-depth research is still needed to study the SARS-CoV-2 virus found in bats, which could have originated in Wuhan or other regions in East and Southeast Asia.

Although they are not certain about the origin of the virus, WHO investigation team leader Dr Peter Ben Embarek, in his explanation on Tuesday (30/3/2021), said the team believed the SARS-CoV-2 virus circled sporadically in Wuhan in November and December of 2019, or even since October.
