Central News Agency cited the British “Sunday Times” reported on the 30th, the British intelligence agencies now believe that the global 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak originated in China’s Wuhan Institute of Virus a coronavirus leak theory is “possible “(FEASIBLE).
The paper noted that since Chinese authorities first confirmed the emergence of a new human-to-human deadly virus in Wuhan 16 months ago, intelligence agencies in the U.K., the U.S. and other Western countries appear to have dismissed the possibility that the Wuhan Institute of Virus Research could be linked to the outbreak.
Although the Wuhan Virus Institute is engaged in research on bat-derived coronaviruses, one of which is closely related to the COVID-19 virus, the intelligence community in the West, including the United Kingdom, initially considered the possibility that the virus had been leaked from a laboratory to be “remote.
Beijing angrily insisted that the source of COVID-19, which has so far killed more than 3.5 million people and is still raging around the world, was not the Wuhan Institute of Virus Research. But the controversy has snowballed as scientists have emerged to claim that their advocacy for an investigation into the theory of a laboratory leak was met with pressure to silence them.
According to the Sunday Times, British intelligence is investigating the possibility that COVID-19 was leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virus Research at the risk of a significant tightening of relations with China. This theory is “possible.
U.S. President Joe Biden has ordered intelligence units to investigate possible sources of COVID-19, including the leak theory, and report to him within 90 days. The report noted that the British intelligence community is working with the U.S. side to investigate.
The report also said that Western intelligence sources stressed that China’s secretive style made the investigation difficult. A Western intelligence source familiar with the British part of the investigation said, “There may be bits of evidence that lead us in one direction and evidence that leads us in another direction. The Chinese will lie in either direction.
