Coronavirus source not possible to determine, says WHO

The World Health Organization (WHO) said that it is not possible to determine the precise source of the new coronavirus (Covid-19) at this stage.

As of now, no conclusions could be made about the precise source of the new coronavirus disease, said Takeshi Kasai, WHO Regional Director for the Western Pacific.

However, the available evidence suggests an animal origin, seems to be a possible reason of spread of Covid-19 infection, Kasai told an online press conference.

U.S. President Donald Trump said last week his government is trying to determine whether the coronavirus emanated from a lab in Wuhan in central China.
