G7 leaders have discussed the origins of the coronavirus outbreak. Perhaps it will be more thoroughly checked in the second stage of the investigation. Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced this at a briefing, CNN reports. 

The origin of the coronavirus was discussed at the summit, including the theory that it came from a laboratory in China.

“The first phase of the origin study was not conclusive. There are four hypotheses but not conclusive. I believe that all four hypotheses should be open. And we need to proceed with the second phase to really know the origins,” Ghebreyesus said.

Earlier, WHO considered four main versions of the Covid-19 origin. The most likely one, the WHO scientists called transmission from a host animal through an intermediary animal to humans, and the least likely - a leak from the laboratory. At the end of March, WHO published the results of a joint work with China. The report says that the coronavirus was transmitted to humans from a bat through some animal.
