The U.S. continues to allow the coronavirus to appear in a laboratory in China.
Washington does not agree with the experts of the World Health Organization (WHO) about the natural origin of the virus. International experts say it is highly unlikely that there has been an incident at the laboratory.
According to the channel, US intelligence has information that Beijing tried to conceal the source of COVID-19 and its significance in the early stages of the infection. It is specified that the available evidence is not direct evidence of artificial origin of the virus, but this option cannot be discounted.
On February 14, the WHO named the most truthful version of the origin of the coronavirus. According to him, the virus could have first spread in southern China and then in Southeast Asia and the vectors were still bats. In his opinion, it is this version that is worth “paying the most attention”.
Earlier, a number of international mission specialists said Chinese authorities had refused to provide World Health Organization (WHO) experts with raw, raw data on early cases of coronavirus infection in the country. Australian scientist Dominic Dwyer explained that Beijing showed the experts only a couple of samples.
Before that, WHO experts questioned the timing of the start of the coronavirus pandemic. They believe the virus could have started spreading in China earlier than December 2019, when it was officially announced.
