He also added the virus was not transferred to humans from bat.
He said he believed the virus was spreading in September/October 2019. This is stunning considering it’s widely believed the virus was spreading in December 2019.
Dr. Redfield said all this in an interview with CNN on Friday.
The Chinese authorities had claimed the virus originated in some Western country and travelled to China. But, it had repeatedly stonewalled any effort to study the origin of the virus.
Few months back, it did not allow the visiting WHO team to collect data and samples from Wuhan.
Wuhan, a city in China, is where its most prominent virology lab is situated.
Dr. Redfield said he knew people would find it difficult to believe but he would stick to his opinion.
