"Nous voulons connaître l'origine et nous ferons tout pour la connaître", a-t-il promis.

"Le nombre de cas a doublé et le nombre de morts a doublé", s'est inquiété Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, lors du point de presse bi-hebdomadaire que consacre son agence à la pandémie.

La pandémie de coronavirus a déjà provoqué la mort d'au moins 1.465.000 personnes dans le monde, plus de 63 millions de contaminations ont été enregistrées et pourtant, le mystère demeure toujours sur l'origine de la maladie.

Afin de remonter aux origines du Covid-19, l'Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS) a déclaré avoir monté une équipe internationale.

La patron de l'OMS a estimé lundi que le Mexique "était en mauvaise posture face à l'épidémie de Covid-19 dans le pays qui a vu le nombre de cas et de morts doubler entre mi et fin novembre".

Gold Rises To Over One-week High On Sagging Dollar
Silver was steady at $24.07 per ounce, while platinum rose 0.1% to $1,030.50 and palladium gained 0.5% to $2,313.00. Langford is the executive director of corporate advisory and consultancy company AirGuide.

" Ceci en attendant que cette équipe scientifique soit déployée le plus vite possible sur le terrain", ajoute-t-il, sans préciser pour autant la date exacte de ce déploiement. Si pour le moment les chercheurs de l'OMS n'ont pas encore pu se rendre à l'épicentre de la pandémie, ils mènent toutefois des visioconférences régulières avec les experts chinois, comme l'affirme le patron de l'OMS.

Ces derniers mois Donald Trump avait publiquement accusé la Chine et Xi Jinping de cacher des choses et déplorait le fait que l'OMS se plie à la volonté des autorités chinoises, selon le président américain.

Si les scientifiques pensent que l'hôte originel du virus est une chauve-souris, on ne connaît pas l'animal intermédiaire qui a permis la contamination humaine.

Le directeur général de l'OMS a souligné que le Brésil avait réussi à faire baisser de deux tiers quasiment le nombre de cas depuis le pic atteint en juillet, avec 114.000 cas lors de la semaine du 2 novembre.
