Wuhan market played a role in virus outbreak: WHO

WHO said on Friday that a wholesale market in China’s Wuhan played a role in the outbreak of the novel coronavirus last year.

“The market played a role in the event, that’s clear. But what role we don’t know, whether it was the source or amplifying setting or just a coincidence that some cases were detected in and around that market,” said Dr Peter Ben Embarek, a WHO expert on food safety and zoonotic viruses that cross the species barrier from animals to humans.
