More light on the origin of the pandemic COVID-19 throws a A new study published yesterday in the journal Science and based on a thorough analysis of the original Chinese references to "mysterious pneumonia", which has evolved into one of the greatest health crises of mankind in recent centuries. Research by the World Health Organization on the origin of the pandemic coronavirus has failed to accurately capture the initial events of the pandemic, eventually distorting its chronological evolution. Her first case COVID-19 Wei Weixian was, according to the new investigation, a seafood trader in Wuhan flea market, and not an accountant who lived miles away from her, as estimated by the WHO. The woman developed a high fever on December 10, 2019.

Inconsistencies

The University of Arizona's Michael Warboy, who specializes in virus evolution and is signing the study, found inconsistencies and errors in the WHO pandemic schedule, after studying hundreds of scientific articles and television interviews with top researchers. According to the American researcher, the new analyzes carried out on the connection between the first cases of COVID and the Juan fish market indicate that this was the "zero point" of the pandemic. "In a city of 11 million people, more than half of COVID cases, in the early stages of the pandemic, were linked to the market, a geographical location the size of a football stadium. "This is extremely difficult to explain if the pandemic did not start there."

Although many experts, including WHO experts, acknowledge that The new analysis is correct and realistic, they do not rule out that the "patient zero" was infected before the trader, and the fish market, due to poor ventilation and overcrowding of people and animals, acted as a source of over-transmission. Jesse Bloom, a virologist at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, says this is not the first time that WHO researchers have found errors in working with Chinese researchers, especially on the first cases of the disease and their association with fish.
