NY Post: WHO backtracks, says COVID-19 lab leak possibility not ‘discarded’

The head of the World Health Organization insisted Friday that scientists haven’t ruled out the possibility that COVID-19 was leaked from a lab in China — despite previous declarations from a WHO-led team saying it was “extremely unlikely.”

In a swift about-face, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the theory that the virus originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology has not been dismissed, and that the organization is still investigating.

“Some questions have been raised as to whether some hypotheses have been discarded,” Ghebreyesus said at a press conference in Geneva.

“Having spoken with some members of the team, I wish to confirm that all hypotheses remain open and require further analysis and studies.”
