The origin of the coronavirus still remains a mystery. In recent days, there have been many accusations made by China and suspicions about the planned escape of Covid-19 from the Wuhan laboratory. To add perplexity about what Beijing has really hidden, the newspaper thinks about it The Australia. Here we read that on February 24, 2020, before the global pandemic was declared, a Chinese military scientist who worked for the People’s Liberation Army, such Yusen Zhou, has filed a patent for a vaccine against Covid-19. It is said – as reported by the newspaper – that Zhou has “worked closely” with scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, including Shi Zhengli, the deputy director of the laboratory known for his coronavirus research in bats.
But to add to the already many mysteries: the death of Zhou, which took place three months later having filed the patent. The latter would have been reported only in a report by the Chinese media, despite being one of the most important scientists in the country. Therefore, the suspicions were too many, so much so that the president of the United States intervened. Last week Joe Biden, Donald Trump’s White House successor, has ordered intelligence agencies to launch an investigation to determine whether the coronavirus had been created by man.
New evidence, including reports from three Wuhan laboratory workers that they became seriously ill with symptoms similar to Covid-19 in November 2019, forced a reassessment of the case. On the other hand, Beijing stands up and continues to refuse to participate in further investigations by the World Health Organization. For this Biden appealed to allies to help the United States “to push China to participate in a comprehensive, transparent, evidence-based international investigation and to provide access to all relevant data and evidence.”
