WHO report concludes that lab leak is 'unlikely' to be the origin of COVID-19

(VOVWORLD) - A report on the origins of COVID-19 to be released Tuesday by the World Health Organization says it is extremely unlikely that COVID-19 leaked from a lab.

A transmission from bats via another animal is the most likely scenario, and introduction through frozen food was deemed possible, according to the report.

At a press conference at WHO headquarters in Geneva on Monday, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that all hypotheses are on the table and warrant further studies, adding that he will have more to say after further review of the report.

International experts plan to hold a press conference to discuss and answer all questions regarding the report.
