Again, “The Batwoman” Shi Zhengli, the Chinese virologist, came to the fore after weeks of staying out of research arenas. novel coronavirus, Denying the accusations that the virus originated from the Wuhan laboratory in China.
The US administration has pushed its intelligence officials to search for evidence to support the theory of the virus actually emerging from the “suspect laboratory”, given that these allegations are pure assumptions that have not been confirmed to date, despite the passage of months of the outbreak and its first appearance from the Chinese province.
The denial of the famous researcher came at a time when the international campaign is escalating to blame China for the spread of this epidemic.
Intelligence agencies, in turn, are skeptical of finding evidence to condemn the laboratory, while scientists say they are most likely viruses that jumped from animal to human in an untested environment.
Most likely them!
Chinese media had indicated that Dr. Xi, who is called “Batwoman”, or “Batwoman” due to her years of experience studying the links between bats and viruses, had helped, with the outbreak of the new coronary virus, to prove that the epidemic probably came from Bats, but they have been scrutinized both in China and abroad.
The most important question remains as to whether the virus came from the laboratory in China intentionally or wrongly.
In an interview with Scientific American in March, Dr. Shi said that she searched her laboratory records and found that the genetic sequence of the new coronavirus does not match any of the studies previously studied by the facility.
However, the scientist kept her low visibility for almost the entire period of the crisis, as she appeared once on social media this month to expose no more rumors.
The basis of affliction
As for her latest research, Biorxiv.org published a study by a prominent Chinese scientist, last Thursday, that reveals the race for disease progression, as Xi revealed that Corona encourages its genetic diversity.
The study was first published by the South China Morning Post, explaining that the findings of the research reinforce the idea that the basis of the Coruna Virus strain of all kinds is the “horseshoe” bat, which is the same cause that left SARS and Covid 19.
Also, continuous monitoring of this group of viruses in bats is necessary to prevent the emerging corona, similar to SARS.
More than 4 million people are infected
It is noteworthy that the World Health Organization confirmed, Monday, that the number of people infected with the Corona virus around the world has exceeded 4.6 million people with the number of deaths reaching more than 311 thousand.
According to WHO data, 93,324 new cases of Coronavirus have been recorded in the last 24 hours, and 4,552 deaths.
The total number of injured around the world 4 million and 618 thousand and 821 people, and the number of deaths 311 thousand and 847 cases.
To that, the World Health Organization, which announced last March the Coronavirus virus global epidemic, indicates that the largest number of people infected with Corona has been recorded in North and South America, where two million and 17,811 people have been infected.
