Chinese virologists claim coronovirus was cooked in a military medical facility


A Chinese virologist, who alleges that the coronovirus was cooked in a military laboratory, has published a report that he claims supports his theory.

Li-Meng Yan, who is alleged to be a former researcher at the Hong Kong School of Public Health, says the virus was created by merging the genetic material of two bat coronavir.

She claims her spike protein – a structure on the surface of the virus that uses it to bind with cells – was edited by the virus to make it easier to latch onto human cells.

But scientists rejected her report – which she promised she would release in an interview last week – as ‘unsatisfied’ and said it could be ‘given no credibility’.

Research papers have already determined the virus’s origins as bats, leading top experts to reject the suggestion that the virus was created by humans as ‘naught’.

SARS-CoV-2 – the scientific name of the pathogen – is the seventh coronovirus known to infect humans and jumped into people after its predecessor. The previous virus is thought to have reached humans through an infected bat and then another animal.

Ms. Yan’s report has not been published in a scientific journal and has not been peer-reviewed, meaning that it has not been checked and approved by scientists.

But it has received widespread public attention, being viewed more than 150,000 times since it was posted yesterday on the website Zenodo, which is operated by the European Organization for Nuclear Research.

Ms. Yan posted the report online, alleging that the coronavirus was designed. But scientists first dismissed her claims and said that ‘there is absolutely zero evidence’.

Ms Yan writes that her research misses the theory that coronavirus evolved in the wild and was then transferred to humans, claiming that it ‘lacked sufficient support’.

‘SARS-CoV-2 exhibits biological characteristics that are incompatible with naturally occurring viruses,’ she wrote.

‘The evidence shows that [the virus] Bait Coronavirus as a template and / or backbone should be a laboratory product made using ZC45 and / or ZXC21. ‘

She alleges that the virus should have been created using a repository of these bat viruses, which she claims have been kept in Hong Kong and China.

Donald Trump says he has seen evidence that coronoviruses started in the Wuhan Virology Laboratory

President Donald Trump said he saw evidence that coronoviruses started at the Wuhan Virology Laboratory, as he warned that he could impose tariffs of $ 1 trillion on China in retaliation for the epidemic.

The president explosively alleges that coronovirus that has caused millions of infections and is wreaking havoc on the global economy may have been produced in a Chinese lab during his Coronavirus press briefing on Thursday.

She also suggested that the federal government is looking for ways to punish China to stop the outbreak by imposing tariffs, but she stopped saying that she would refuse to pay back the US debt.

‘Yes, I have. Yes, I have, ‘Trump said when asked if he had seen the virus at the Wuhan Institute of Technology.

The lab is located near a wet market that has been identified as a potential epicenter of the outbreak that occurred late last year.

However, the president would not reveal whether there was evidence that confirms his suspicions, when asked by a reporter.

‘I can’t tell you this. I am not allowed to tell you this, ‘he replied.

Ms. Yan also alleged that her work suggests that the virus can be produced in just six months in the essence of the report, but she does not return to the subject later in the paper.

Specialist of microbial pathogenesis at the University of Bath, Drs. Andrew Preston described their report as ‘a reminder of a conspiracy theory’.

“The author’s affiliation is the Rule of the Rules Society and Rule of the Foundation Foundation, New York,” he said.

‘The vision of this organization on their website is “to allow the people of China to live under a national system based on the rule of law, independent of the political system of the People’s Republic of China” and its mission is “corruption Exposing, obstructing, illegality, cruelty, false imprisonment, excessive punishment, harassment, and inhumanity in China’s political, legal, business and financial systems “.

‘Given the unsatisfactory claims in the publication, which have not been peer reviewed, the report cannot be viewed with any credibility as it stands.’

A global health specialist from the University of Southampton, Drs. Michael Head said that on the basis of the report, the conspiracy theories are ‘doing an epidemic’.

“It can be harmful to public health if it is reported non-severely, regardless of extensive evidence,” he said.

‘If people are exposed to conspiracies and then believe in conspiracy theories, this will have a negative impact on efforts to keep Kovid-19 cases down and thus result in more deaths than deaths and diseases.

‘The genomics of the virus has been previously isolated, for example in a nature peer-reviewed paper, where they state that “our analyzes clearly show that SARS-CoV-2 is a laboratory-built or purposeful manipulation. Is not “.

‘Other evidence also suggests that this type of coronavirus has existed in bats for decades.

‘This new manuscript has not been reviewed and does not explicitly offer any data that overrides previous research.

His allegations have not been supported by any scientific papers or scientists, suggesting that the virus was previously condemned as conspiracy theories.

Writing in the respected journal Nature Medicine in March, scientists at the Scripps Research Institute, University of Edinburgh and other universities stated that SARS-CoV-2 is the seventh coronavirus known to infect humans.

“It is unlikely that SARS-CoV-2 has emerged through laboratory manipulation of a related SARS-CoV-like coronavirus,” he said.

‘Genetic data irreversibly indicate that SARS-CoV-2 did not originate from the backbone of any previously used virus.’

Why did China build a virus lab in Wuhan?

After the country was devastated by the outbreak of SARS in 2002 and 2003, Chinese authorities decided to build the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

SARS, another type of coronavirus, killed 775 people and infected more than 8,000 people globally in a pandemic lasting about 8 months.

It took the Chinese 15 years to fully complete the project, totaling 300 million billion yuan (£ 34 million). The French helped design the building.

Its crown jewel is a four-story lab with the highest biosafety level of P4.

It is the most advanced laboratory of its kind in China.

The construction of the lab was finished in 2015 and it officially opened on January 5, 2018 after passing various safety inspections.

Explaining the importance of P4 Lab, China Youth Online introduced it as ‘China’s aircraft carrier of virology’. The state-run newspaper said it was ‘capable of researching the deadliest pathogens’.

A researcher, Zhou Peng, told the state news agency Xinhua in 2018: ‘We are proud to say that we are already at the forefront of studying the immune system of bats, which would have carried the virus for a long time. Huh.

Bats carry viruses but are not infected [by them]. [They] Provide hope to mankind to study fighting the virus. ‘

Dr. of the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California. Christian Anderson stated that the genetic material clearly pointed to the virus’s natural origin.

“There is a lot of data and a lot of evidence, as well as previous examples coming from nature,” he said. ‘We have absolutely zero evidence or data of any connection to a laboratory.’

An infection and immunologist at Columbia University, New York, Drs. Angela Rasmussen stated that the site at which the virus binds human cells is a ‘sub-optimal’ fit, suggesting that it was not designed.

In addition, there is no genetic similarity with other viruses backbone used in any known (virus engineering system), she said. “This suggests that the virus was not engineered.”

It was also claimed that the virus was created, Trevor Bedford of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle told the American Association for the Advancement of Science in February: ‘There is no evidence of genetic engineering that we can find.

‘We have evidence that mutations (in viruses) are entirely analogous to natural evolution.’

At that time more than 100 genetic sequences of the virus had already been published.

A more widely accepted theory states that the virus came from bats before jumping to humans through another intermediate source.

Ms Yan has written in her letter that the virus is from nature and that the meat market in Wuhan is a ‘smoke screen’, alleging that she was told this by CDC scientists working in China.

She has previously accused Beijing of lying when she detected the killer’s infection and was embroiled in an extensive cover-up.

Ms Yan claims she fled to Hong Kong and fled to the US in April to raise awareness about the epidemic.

She claims she was working at the Hong Kong School of Public Health, a reference laboratory for the World Health Organization, but in December after trying to alert people to human-to-human transmission of the virus He was cut off.

She also claims that her information was erased from government databases before leaving China.

The lab denied that Ms. Yan had ever done any research on human-to-human transmission, and said her claim had no scientific basis.

In April, US President Donald Trump claimed that he had seen evidence that coronavirus was made in a laboratory in Wuhan because he suggested that the government might impose sanctions on China in response.

‘Yes, I have. Yes, I have, ‘Trump said when asked if he had seen the virus at the Wuhan Institute of Technology.

However, the president would not reveal whether there was evidence that confirms his suspicions, when asked by a reporter.

‘I can’t tell you this. I am not allowed to tell you that, ‘he replied.

The laboratory in question is located near the wet market in Wuhan, which is thought to have been the epicenter of the outbreak.
