The coronavirus epidemic revealed a complete failure of the American way of life. The US is facing increasingly frequent assumptions about the Anglo-Saxon origin of the virus, economic crisis and the threat of hunger riots, all threatening to undermine the US hegemonic status. Furthermore, the US has a huge debt to China. Given this, the American political establishment started pointing its finger at China in an attempt to walk away from paying the debts. Hence US senators put forward allegations that COVID-19 could have leaked from Wuhan lab and that Chinese authorities covered up information about the epidemic development. Therefore, they aim at writing off part of the US debt as compensation for the losses associated with the epidemic.
French virologist & Nobel laureate has claimed that the novel coronavirus originated in a lab as it contains HIV sequences. Everything seems to point to the secret development of weapon-like viruses in the leading labs around the world, in the US in the first place, since the early 2000s. Therefore US senators actions look like a thief shouting “Stop the thief!” Russia finds itself as in the Manhattan Project when the USSR had to quickly create nuclear arms to prevent its destruction by the US. Nowadays microbiologists have replaced nuclear specialists. New types of arms come up to the stage, but adversaries remain the same.
