WHO Investigators Back Beijing’s Claim There’s ‘No Evidence’ Covid Was Transmitted ‘Before December In Wuhan Or Elsewhere’

Published

WHO scientists researching the origins of Covid in China have backed Beijing’s claim that there was no transmission of the virus before December 2019 in Wuhan or elsewhere.

At that time, it was reported that the novel coronavirus emerged in Wuhan, China, and spread throughout the world, causing a pandemic.

Data from several countries claimed the virus was circulating months earlier than previously thought, suggesting that China covered up early spread before informing the world.

Following a conducted research by WHO scientists, Peter Embarek, the leader of the team, said on Tuesday at a press conference held in Wuhan, that studies of infection and mortality data, blood samples, and other hospital records had failed to uncover any evidence of significant transmission before December ‘in Wuhan or elsewhere’.

Dr. Embarek reported the findings of a month-long fact-finding mission in China.

During the one month of research, the experts reportedly spent two weeks in quarantine, and the same again on fieldwork. They also spent just an hour at the seafood market where many of the first reported clusters of infections emerged over a year ago.

The teams also appeared to spend several days inside their hotel, receiving visits from various Chinese officials without going out into the city.

But deeper research was carried out at the Wuhan virology institute where they spent nearly four hours and said they met with Chinese scientists there including Shi Zhengli, one of China’s leading experts on bat coronaviruses and deputy director of the Wuhan la

Opening the press conference, Dr. Liang Winnian, the head of China’s Wuhan research team, said that while transmissions from animals to humans via bats remain the likeliest origin of Covid, the original host ‘has not been identified’.

He added that studies showed the virus ‘can be carried long-distance on cold chain products,’ appearing to nudge towards the possible importation of the virus – a theory that has abounded in China in recent months.

He also said there was ‘no indication’ the sickness was in circulation in Wuhan before December 2019 when the first official cases have been recorded.

WHO foreign expert Ben Embarak, who was based in the WHO’s Beijing office for two years from 2009, backed up the assertion saying there was no evidence of ‘large outbreaks in Wuhan’ before then.

Before the mission began, it was trailed by fears of a whitewash, with the US demanding a ‘robust’ probe but China fired back with a warning not to ‘politicize’ the investigation.

In the early hours of Wednesday 3rd March 2021, gunshots were heard from the Jubilee house of Ghana where the office of the president located.

It is quite unclear what might have caused the gunshots which the office of the presidency has still refused to comment about.

But according to information gathered the gunshots which were heard in the morning were the gunshots of the Ghana armed forces (GAF).

It is believed that the Ghana armed forces were rehearsing for upcoming Ghana’s 64th independence day celebration.

This year’s independence day celebration out from the ordinary will be held at the forecourt of the jubilee house with just a few people in attendance.

This is due to the measures taken to fight against the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Michael Essien Could Not Stay With Nadia Buari Or Any Other Women Because He’s Gay : Prophet Adu Boahen

Published

Prophet Adu Boahen has claimed that Michael Essien by supporting the LGBTQI community in Ghana was pushing his own private agenda.

In an interview, the Prophet alleged that Michael Essien is gay and that his numerous failed relationships with women confirm it.

The founder of Christ Revival Baptist Church added that the signs were evident from Essien’s trail of fruitless relationships that he was attracted to men instead.

According to him, the legendary Ghanaian footballer only dated women as a cover-up for his homosexual nature.

Prophet Adu Boahen rebutted the host’s statement that Essien reportedly had a French Baby Mama who had borne him a son.

He insisted that it was all part of a grand plan to hide the fact that Essien is gay.

His accusation comes following the footballer’s social media post in support of the LGBTQI community in Ghana.

Essien wrote that for there to be true equality in our society, gay people should be respected and accepted.

Player Beats Up Female Referee Mercilessly In Ghana League Game

Published

on

The beautiful game of football which we understand is to unite people with excitement is rather taking as a war between different football teams.

Kumasi witnessed one of the unfortunate things which is not known to be part of the game occurring in the history of Ghana football as a female referee was heavily assaulted by a female footballer.

What makes it more shocking is the person who assaulted the referee, a footballer who is also a female just like the referee.

In past, we have seen and heard stories where referees are beaten, these assaults are mostly melted out by males, like the supporters but to the extent of a player assaulting a referee is something which needs a serious punishment no matter the provocation.

Referee Faizatu Jakpa was attacked and beaten up by a player of the Fabulous Ladies in the Ghana women’s league match between Fabulous Ladies and Kumasi Sports Academy.

This is certainly not football, as a matter of urgency we expect the football association to quickly apply the necessary sanctions on this inhumane act by the footballer.
