After the “Chinese virus” that has long been reported in the American media and by senior administration officials, led by President Donald Trump, it seems that Wuhan Laboratory“Whose name has returned strongly during the current days, he will hesitate for a period also.
The American and global scene has once again been preoccupied with a laboratory or institute of virology in Wuhan, China, the birthplace of the virus that has infected more than 193 countries and territories, and affected more than two million people around the world.
The return of talk about the laboratory is due to American reports attributed to intelligence officials many doubts about this Chinese laboratory, but the statements of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of Defense Mark Esper also spared no effort in pricing this controversy.
Pompeo fuels the fire of doubt again
Pompeo again fueled those doubts during an interview on Wednesday evening, when he said in an interview with Fox News after a daily Trump conference about Coronas developments in the country. Only miles from the market, that’s what we know. ”
He added, “We want the Chinese government to be clear and help in an accurate explanation of how the virus has spread.” The Chinese government should recognize.
The comments came despite the fact that the US Secretary had earlier eased these accusations earlier Wednesday, calling on China to cooperate on Corona, in talks with a senior Chinese official, in a sign of seeking to ease renewed tensions between the two countries.
Pompeo at the time renewed his request for “full transparency” in Wednesday’s call with the Chinese official, Yang Jiechi, but the tone of the US State Department was unusually positive.
Beijing’s incredible esper
Before that rhetoric returned, the US Secretary of Defense, Mark Esper, who Thursday accused the Communist Party of China of misleading the United States over the issue of the spread of the emerging virus, rose again.
In an interview with the American channel “NBC”, Esber said that he considered it difficult to believe what the Communist Party of China was saying about Corona. He added: “They were misleading us from the beginning, they were not transparent, since the early days of the emergence of this virus, so I do not believe very much that they have become honest with us now.”
It is reported that several previous reports had talked about the Wuhan Institute of Virology, raising many doubts about it, especially after Western information confirmed that he was studying viruses in bats.
Those doubts were reinforced after several scientists confirmed that corona was related to bats.
A comment from the Ministry of Science and Technology of China on February 15 sparked a new wave of suspicion, after stressing that China should strengthen the management of biological biological materials in all laboratories and research institutes, without any additional explanation.
China: No proof
On the other hand, China Thursday denied all these new reports and accusations, and the Foreign Ministry said that the World Health Organization announced that it had found no evidence that the Corona virus, which caused the infection of more than two million people around the world, was produced in a laboratory.
The ministry’s spokesman, Zhao Li Jian, made the remarks in response to a question about the accusations that the SK virus was synthesized in a laboratory in central Chinas Wuhan city, from which the outbreak began at the end of last year.
He told reporters during a daily press briefing in Beijing that WHO officials “have repeatedly said that there is no evidence that the new Corona virus was created in the laboratory.”
