A new study published by ANI showed that Chinese scientists created the virus in a laboratory in Wuhan and then tried to cover its tracks with modified versions of the virus to show that it was descended from naturally evolved bats.
The Daily Mail reported on Sunday that the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus virus has no "reliable natural ancestor" and was created by Chinese scientists working on a "function enhancement" project in a Wuhan lab, British professor Angus Dalgleish and Norwegian scientist Dr. Birger Sorensen.
The new study suggests scientists have taken the natural backbone of the Quran virus found in Chinese bat caves and attached a new tip to it, calling it the deadly and highly infectious COVID - which turns 19.
The document also says that researchers have found "unique fingerprints" in COVID-19 samples that they believe can only be obtained through laboratory manipulation.
According to DailyMail.com, authors Dalglish and Sorensen wrote in their article that within a year they had “direct evidence of reverse engineering in China,” but was ignored by academics and major journals.
The study denounced "willful destruction, concealment or corruption of data" in Chinese laboratories and noted the silence and disappearance of scientists in China who spoke of the activity.
The study should strengthen the ongoing debate about China's role in creating the virus that has killed thousands of people.
In a 22-page article to be published in the scientific journal Quarterly Review of Biophysics Discovery, Dalglish and Sorensen summarize how Chinese scientists, working with some US universities, allegedly created the tools to create the coronavirus.
Incidentally, former US President Barack Obama has banned "functionality enhancement" projects that involve modifying natural viruses to make them more infectious.
In the newspaper, scientists wrote that it is expected that the natural virus pandemic will slowly mutate and become infectious, but less pathogenic, which did not happen in the case of Covid-19.
Dalglish and Sorensen said that after the outbreak began, Chinese scientists took samples of the COVID-19 virus and "reverse engineered" it, from which it appears to have originated naturally.
Scientists also reported that Chinese scientists who wanted to share their knowledge were unable to do so or disappeared.
It's reported Sorensen said he believed the virus had left the institute's lower security zones, where he believed the benefits and operations were being investigated.
Meanwhile, on May 26, US President Joe Biden said he had asked the US intelligence community to “redouble its efforts” to come to a conclusion about the origin of Covid-19 and report it within 90 days.
