Amid growing accusations and doubts about the possibility of the outbreak of the Corona virus, which has so far affected more than two million people worldwide, from a laboratory in Wuhan, China responded Thursday, denying the matter altogether.
Today, in response to recent US accusations that the emerging virus was launched from the Wuhan laboratory, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi Hu stressed that there is absolutely no evidence that the virus was made in a laboratory.
This comes after repeated American calls for China to act transparently in the health issue that has fought and is still the whole world, and affected America in particular, as it became the first country in terms of both deaths and injuries.
From inside a Chinese laboratory?
US intelligence and national security officials earlier revealed to CNN Thursday that the US government was continuing to investigate whether the emerging virus had been created in a Chinese laboratory, not in a meat and fish market.
An intelligence official familiar with the government’s analysis of the American network added that the theory of US intelligence officials investigating the emergence of Corona states that the virus originated in a laboratory in China and was accidentally released to the public.
Other sources also reported that American intelligence was not able to confirm this theory, but it is trying to distinguish whether someone was injured in the laboratory through a specific accident or mishandling of materials, and injured others.
Earlier on Wednesday, Fox News television reported that the virus had originated in a laboratory in Wuhan, not as a biological weapon but as part of China’s bid to show that its efforts to monitor and fight viruses equal or outpace the capabilities of the United States.
This report and other reports indicated that poor safety standards in the laboratory where the virus testing was conducted in Wuhan caused someone to become infected and appear in a market where the virus began to circulate.
The State-backed Wuhan Institute of Virology last February denied rumors that the virus might have been synthesized in one of its laboratories, or that it had leaked from a laboratory.
