A Russian expert on Saturday said Wuhan’s Huanan seafood market may have made it possible for the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) to spread, but it does not mean the virus originated there.

Sputnik reported that Vladimir Dedkov, a member of the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) expert team said: “There is no evidence that the virus originated there’’ but hypothetically, there are all conditions for the spread of the virus there.”

The seafood market was linked to an early cluster of COVID-19 cases, but scientists are yet to come to an unequivocal conclusion regarding the role it played in the contagion.

Dedkov also refuted the theory of a virus leakage while visiting the Wuhan Institute of Virology along with nine other WHO experts on Wednesday.

“Of course, it was important for our mission to visit this facility, talk to our colleagues and see how everything is organised there,’’ the expert said.

“The laboratory is perfectly equipped.

“It is hard for me to imagine that something could have leaked from there,’’ he added.


  1. Correct! Coronavirus did not originate from China. It only seem to have started there, because it spread very fast in China, and was very devastating. Coronavirus is a PESTILENCE that infects people in the darkness (night); but close contact with an infected person in the day time is one of the ways it can be contacted. Touching or eating any thing that is infected by the virus is also one of the sources of contacting Coronavirus.
    France has the best approach to preventing her citizens from contacting Coronavirus by imposing 6pm to 6am curfiew because Coronavirus thrives in the darkness, and that is when most people contact the virus.
    The CURE for Covid-19 is in Nigeria, in Gwagwalada, Abuja.
    It is a very pleasant and very clean TRADITIONAL MEDICINE. Just 3doses of 18ml per dose does the healing wonders, as the Almighty God is the only healer.
