Differences in WHO’s ‘PHEIC’ is a threat to the world or not

The World Health Organization (WHO) convened emergency talks on Wednesday-Thursday through the intervening night to decide on the implementation of the Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC). After this closed-door meeting, WHO Director-General Tedross Adhanom said that more information was still awaited before the decision on the PHEIC. Further meetings will be held.

He described this as a matter of international concern and said that the PHEIC Declaration had serious consequences, as it did at the time of swine flu or Ebola. But present in France’s National Health Protection Agency and Emergency Committee meeting Didier Hosin said that there were differences in the meeting on the implementation of the PHEIC. To do so, the death rate is currently low, with more deaths occurring in earlier announcements.

The decision will now be made to decide whether to consider the current spread of the coronavirus a threat to mankind. PHEIC is imposed on the spread of a disease that needs international efforts to prevent it.

Coronavirus came from Snake or Bats

There may be snakes or bats behind the coronavirus outbreak that killed 17 people in China. This claim has been made in two separate types of research based on the genetic analysis of viruses. In this research, the genome sequence of the virus has been studied.

According to research published in the journal China Life Science on Tuesday, the coronavirus found in Wuhan resembles the genetic variant coronavirus found in bats. ‘Wuhan COV’ (coronavirus) is commonly found in Wuhan bats.

In such a situation, scientists have reason to believe that its arrival from there. At the same time, scientists assess that while passing from bats to humans, it has passed through some organisms in between.

Snakes come from but need further study to confirm

The second study was published in the Journal of Medical Virology on Wednesday, in which the snakes were convicted as possible. According to the researchers, after detailed gene sequencing and comparison, they found that it came from snakes. These snakes were probably brought from the forest. However, detailed studies are needed to confirm this.

Doubts on eating the meat of wild animals

While these studies have not revealed how these organisms spread the virus to humans, it has indicated that many types of organisms are also traded in the food commodities market in Wuhan, China. These include living foxes, crocodiles, wolves, lizards, snakes, mice, bats, peacocks, porcupines, Shamil.

Gao Fu, director of China’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, claimed in Beijing that at present Chinese officials believe that the virus originated in humans from forest organisms. Earlier, there was a possibility of the spread of Sevier Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) civet (musk-pilav) by eating meat.
