Beijing calls “libel” yesterday’s accusations from the US about a possible leak of coronavirus from the Wuhan laboratory.
According to the chief American epidemiologist and White House adviser, the United States has allocated $ 600,000 to the Wuhan Institute of Virology to study whether the bats coronavirus can infect humans. On the sensational statement went to the chief American epidemiologist Dr. Anthony Fauci, who found out that the United States funded the Institute of Virology in Wuhan in the amount of $ 600,000, for a period of 5 years, to study whether bat coronaviruses can affect humans.
The Chinese Embassy in Washington has strongly condemned the allegations of a “laboratory leak” of the coronavirus. A statement was posted on the website of the diplomatic mission, which says:
The lesson of last year is still alive in our memory. While the pandemic still wreaks havoc on the world today and the international community expects better coordination between countries, some people are still turning to their old guidelines. We cannot help but ask if they have already left this bitter lesson in the past, so early? Or do they want a repeat of the tragedies? Not too long ago, some people tried to play an old trick of drawing attention to themselves on the topic of the origin of the coronavirus. Some political forces have tried to manipulate and blame since the beginning of the pandemic. Out of a sense of responsibility for the health of all mankind, we supported a joint study of all the first recorded cases of coronavirus and an investigation concerning all secret biolaboratories around the world. The investigation must be complete, open and scientifically based, and must be completed and clarified.
China believes that the politicization of the investigation will significantly complicate the establishment of the truth – the origin of the coronavirus, and the campaign of defamation that has begun indicates an attempt to blame and blame Beijing for the pandemic.
The message appeared on the website of the Chinese Embassy after the release distributed by the White House, which does not exclude the version of the spread of the virus due to an accident in the laboratory. According to US President Joe Biden, the US intelligence community “united around two possible scenarios, but did not come to a final conclusion on this issue.”
