Wuhan's virus alarm doesn't necessarily point to COVID-19 origin, says WHO

A 'Silver Bullet' Vaccine for COVID-19 Might Never Come, WHO Warns

New Zealand's Covid-19 response has been praised by World Health Organization, with the country's stringent border measures catching all new cases in its quarantine facilities.

The WHO says there is now no vaccine to prevent the coronavirus.

"Testing, isolating and treating patients, and tracing and quarantining their contacts".

"Inform, empower and listen to communities".

The novel coronavirus has killed almost 690,000 people and infected at least 18.1 million since the outbreak emerged in Wuhan in China last December, according to a tally from official sources compiled by AFP.

The statement by Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus ahead of WHO's emergency committee meeting on Friday, July 31, for a fourth to assess the pandemic.

Tedros said that there might never be a "silver bullet" answer to the new coronavirus but people and countries should not give up.

Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said several countries that had appeared to be past the worst in the last week are now contending with fresh spikes in infections.

China and the World Health Organization are discussing plans to trace the origin of the coronavirus outbreak following a visit to the country by two experts from the United Nations agency, the foreign ministry said Tuesday.

The WHO press office, contacted by The Associated Press after the news conference, did not provide details of the terms of reference, say whether they would be made public, or indicate how big the worldwide team would be or when it could be sent to China. "But until we finish the clinical trials, we will not know". Some that were less affected in the earliest weeks are now seeing escalating numbers of cases and deaths.

"Mothers should be counselled that the many benefits of breastfeeding for newborn babies and children substantially outweigh the potential risks for COVID-19 infection.

And the fact that that fire alarm was triggered doesn't necessarily mean that that is where the disease crossed from animals into humans", he said at Monday's press briefing.

Since the first case of the novel Coronavirus outbreak was reported in Wuhan, China, it is considered the origin of the virus.

The WHO advance team that traveled to China has now concluded its mission to lay the groundwork for further joint efforts to determine the origin of the virus.

The WHO and Chinese experts have drafted the terms of reference for the studies and a programme of work for an global team led by the WHO.
