The United States may inadvertently stand behind the emergence of the COVID-19 virus in the Chinese city of Wuhan.
A report published by Canada’s GlobalResearch.ca made clear that last summer, the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention ordered the closure of a major military biological laboratory at Fort Detrick, Maryland, in anticipation of possible leaks.
Five of the Americans participating in the Military World Games competitions hosted by Wuhan last October were infected with an undefined infection.
Conspiracy theory about the 2019-nCoV coronavirus. There is no evidence to suggest that the virus is being used as a weapon against other states or that is has been fabricated inside laboratories. The narratives also resemble a recurring conspiracy theory about the Lugar Lab in Georgia.
The coronavirus comes from a family of viruses originating in animals that include the common cold and viruses such as SARS and MERS. The expert scientific consensus holds that the coronavirus has natural origins; there is no credible evidence supporting claims of laboratory engineering.
