A Chinese researcher who has theorized that a corona pandemic from a virus leak from his lab in Wuhan, China, has denied that his institution was to blame for the health disaster.
“How can I bring evidence for something that does not exist at all,” Dr. Xi Zhangli told the New York Times in an unprecedented statement, according to News i. I have no idea how the world got to this point, and it constantly slanders an innocent scientist.
President Joe Biden last month ordered his country’s intelligence agencies to investigate the origins of the pandemic, particularly the theory of laboratory leaks.
This hypothesis was first published by the Corona pandemic, especially by Donald Trump, but was largely rejected as a conspiracy theory. The hypothesis, however, has recently been re-emerged, suggesting that three researchers from the Wuhan Institute of Virology became seriously ill after seeing a bat in southwest China’s Yunnan Province.
Dr. Shea is a coronavirus expert, and some experts say he may have led a so-called “performance gain” experiment in which scientists increase the power of a virus to better study its effects on hosts.
According to the New York Times, Dr. Shee and his colleagues published a new article in Wuhan Lab in 2017 about a new experiment. In the experiment, they wrote, “Bat viruses created a new combination by mixing and matching parts of several existing viruses, including at least one virus that is almost contagious to humans, thereby allowing them to infect and multiply.” “Examine human cells.”
But Dr. Shee told the New York Times in an email that his experiments were different from performance tests because the goal was not to make the virus more dangerous. Rather, they were trying to figure out how the virus might be transmitted between species. “My lab has never been involved in boosting the severity of viruses through performance tests, collaboration and role-playing,” said the Chinese researcher.
