“Wuhan was where the coronavirus was first detected but it was not where it originated,” Zeng Guang, former chief epidemiologist of the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), told an online academic conference on Thursday.Zeng is the second senior Chinese epidemiologist who has weighed in on the controversial topic in recent weeks.

Speaking at the conference organised by US publisher Cell Press and the Beijing Municipal Science and Technology Commission, Zeng said cited an Italian study that suggested that Sars-CoV-2, the official name of the coronavirus, was circulating among asymptomatic individuals in Italy months before it was reported in Wuhan in December 2019.
The study found that antibodies specific to Sars-CoV-2 were detected in blood samples collected in a lung cancer screening trial between September 2019 and March this year.
