Even though officially the first case of coronavirus emerged in the city of Wuhan, not everyone shares this opinion. This is the case of the renowned German virologist Alexander Kekulé, who gave an interview to the chain ZDF and reaffirmed his theory that “it is not the wuhan virus, if not the northern Italian virus “.
This strain it is called mutant “G” and has genetic variations, as Kekulé explained to the aforementioned medium. Thus, it is likely that this mutation is more contagious than the one found in Wuhan, which was the epicenter of coronavirus outbreak in China.
German news agency Weser Courier cited this virologist for report that more than 99 percent of COVID-19 cases can be genetically traced up to the Italian variant. Even the current cases in China they are re-imported from Europe and the rest of the world.
In Kekulé’s opinion, the beginning of the pandemic originated in northern Italy. He argues that the transalpine country ignored the warnings from the Asian giant, and that if measures and restrictions had been taken, the original virus could have been controlled.
China denies being the origin
Although All eyes are on China as the center of the pandemic, the country’s authorities deny it and have even decided to ban Wuhan doctors from speaking. The Government defends that the virus already existed outside its borders and some media point to imported frozen food packaging as the culprits that the coronavirus appeared there.
