Researchers and investigators are now scrutinizing the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) and are turning up some interesting, but not surprising, results. More and more evidence is being uncovered that the laboratory in question is the place where the COVID-19 virus originated from.
The Chinese claim that the virus started in wet markets that sold panoglins or bats is increasingly looking like nothing more than deflection when taking into account the organism’s history. A team of Oxford scientists recently refuted China’s assertions using documentation of thousands of animals housed and sold in Wuhan wet markets.
But not far from the wet markets, according to Sky News Australia, the WIV housed bats, lots of them. The below news report also demonstrates the Middle Kingdom’s inexperience operating a high-level biological containment lab or Biosafety Level 4 facility. Simultaneously, lots of scientists and experts, such as the now-infamous Peter Daszak, have had to retract their condemnations of the assertion that the coronavirus originated in a lab.
