Chinese Lab Released Coronavirus via Bats, Report Says
Chinese scientists are now claiming that the coronavirus may have begun in a research facility located in Wuhan. The Beijing-sponsored South China University of Technology is blaming the Wuhan Center for Disease Control (WHCDC) for outbreak.
‘The possible origins of 2019-nCoV coronavirus,’ penned by scholars Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao claims the WHCDC kept disease-ridden animals in laboratories, including 605 bats.’
The reports says that one of the bats attacked a researcher, leaving blood on the victim’s skin.
‘Genome sequences from patients were 96% or 89% identical to the Bat CoV ZC45 coronavirus originally found in Rhinolophus affinis (intermediate horseshoe bat),’ the report states.
The research facility is located in close proximity to a popular Wuhan fish market. The bats in question aren’t native to the Wuhan region, instead, they would need to migrate at least 600 miles in order to enter the area. And scientists say such a case is improbable. Additionally, researchers say that locals eating bats is that of myth, not reality.
The below image shows where researchers claim they were first exposed (bottom) and the proximity to the fish market.
‘The WHCDC was also adjacent to the Union Hospital (Figure 1, bottom) where the first group of doctors were infected during this epidemic.’ The report says.
‘It is plausible that the virus leaked around and some of them contaminated the initial patients in this epidemic, though solid proofs are needed in future study.’
The claim instead is that WHCDC researchers near the fish market were using the bats. One of the WHCDC researchers self-quarantined himself after he observed bat blood on his skin. But it’s not just the WHCDC on the hook, the report also condemns the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
‘This laboratory reported that the Chinese horseshoe bats were natural reservoirs for the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) which caused the 2002-3 pandemic,’ the report says.
‘The principle investigator participated in a project which generated a chimeric virus using the SARS-CoV reverse genetics system, and reported the potential for human emergence 10. A direct speculation was that SARS-CoV or its derivative might leak from the laboratory.’
The report has now appeared in a number of mainstream news sites, including DailyMail.
The question for many, beyond the validity of the report, is whether or not coronavirus was the result of a biowarfare agenda. Could China be attempting to create a large-scale pandemic?
