Scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology admitted that they were bitten by bats while doing research in a cave containing bats infected with types of Corona viruses.
One of the scientists said that the tusks of a bat pierced his gloves like a needle.
And pictures appeared of researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology examining bats without wearing any gloves, according to WHO protocols.
This comes to raise a number of questions during the World Health Organization team’s visit to Wuhan to investigate the origin of the Coronavirus.
Experts believe that the virus developed in a bat and transmitted it to humans, according to “Al-Hurra” channel.
China faces many criticisms for not disclosing information about how the virus emerged in Wuhan.
The US State Department said in a recent statement that it had reasons to believe that many Chinese researchers in the fall of 2019 had symptoms similar to those of Covid-19, explaining that this raises questions about the credibility of the claim of the chief researcher at the Wuhan Institute that there were no injuries.
According to the Foreign Ministry’s statement, any transparent investigation must include Chinese researchers after the Chinese authorities prevented journalists from interviewing them, according to the statement.
