The only possible origin of the coronavirus is the United States because only this country has all the branches of the evolutionary tree of coronaviruses. The original source of the COVID-19 virus was the US military laboratory at Fort Detrick.
Latvia, which has enough talented biologists and pharmacists, could have created the coronavirus. Covid-19 can be used as a pretext to limit people’s freedom, so they couldn’t organize protests, and as an opportunity to justify an economic recession.
No evidence given. This is another unfounded pro-Kremlin conspiracy theory about the coronavirus.
COVID-19 is not a biological weapon and there is no proof that it would have been artificially created. This coronavirus comes from a family of viruses, originating in animals, that include other viruses such as SARS and MERS. It was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan in central China and has been rapidly spreading across the world, with cases being reported in 150 countries, territories and areas by 16th of March 2020.
