NeoCov, World Health Organization (WHO) asserted that it still needs to be studied whether it poses threats for humans. The scientists have clarified, NeoCov is related to the Middle East respiratory syndrome or MERS-coronavirus. “The virus is discovered in a bat population in South Africa and is currently spreading only among animals," the scientists said and further warned, “Just one mutation is enough for the virus to be able to infiltrate human cells."  "Whether the virus detected in the study will pose a risk for humans will require further study," WHO told Russian news agency Tass.  "Animals, particularly wild animals are the source of more than 75% of all emerging infectious diseases in humans, many of which are caused by novel viruses.

Coronaviruses are often found in animals, including in bats which have been identified as a natural reservoir of many of these viruses," WHO said.

WHO is aware of the new finding of Wuhan scientists and is in touch with the World Organization for Animal Health, the Food and Agriculture Organization to respond to this.

COVID-19 won’t disappear and provinces need to ‘evolve,’ says Canada’s top doctor
COVID-19 pandemic, British Columbia’s premier has said he’s looking for ways to balance public protection with individual freedom.In a Friday press conference after a meeting of all Canadian premiers, John Horgan said he and other provincial and territorial leaders, discussed interprovincial travel rights as the Omicron variant continues to impact public health restrictions.“As we come to this place of moving in the next number of weeks to potentially endemic rather than pandemic, we need to reimagine the tools at our disposal as citizens and as provinces, and as a federal government is,” said Horgan.“How do we maximize our ability to protect people, which is our obligation, but also to ensure that their liberties are intact and they can make choices for themselves? It’s a fine balance and we’re all working together on how do we get there?” Canadian premiers push for boost in health-care funding from Ottawa In a news conference Friday, Canada’s chief public health officer Dr. Theresa Tam said that as Canada emerges from the “Omicron wave,” it’s important for governments to recognize that the virus isn’t going to disappear.“We need to be able to address the ongoing presence of the SARS‑CoV‑2 virus in a more sustainable way,” she said.“The virus will continue to evolve so we need to also continue to evolve our measures, recognizing that further waves will occur.”Her comments come as two provinces, Alberta and Saskatchewan, have announced intentions to end most or all COVID-19 restrictions.
