No evidence of artificial origin, coronavirus or changing its genome under laboratory conditions does not exist. As reported by Reuters, on the 21st of April was declared by the speaker of the world health organization of Cheb Fadel.
According to her, all the evidence suggests that the virus is of animal origin, and probably transmitted to humans from bats. CAIB suggested that chain transfer was another link, but it has not yet discovered. Also the representative of who stressed that it is unclear how the coronavirus was able to overcome the species barrier.
To the question whether it is possible to prevent accidental leak of the virus from the laboratory, Chaib not answered.
On 16 April, the TV channel Fox News, citing several sources familiar with the decisions of the authorities of China and had seen the relevant documents, reported that “patient zero” was an employee of the Wuhan lab. Documents seen by the interlocutors Fox News, describe in detail how doctors in the lab trying to contain the spread of the virus in the early stages. The sources of the TV channel said that the source of the virus could not become Wuhan market animals and seafood, and suggested that the Chinese authorities are especially invented this version in order to divert suspicion from the lab.
The US President Donald trump said that America “will examine this terrible situation,” he threatened China with serious consequences in case of concealment of facts about the coronavirus.
The foreign Ministry of China declared that the version about the leak of a coronavirus from laboratory of Wuhan has no evidence.
In the scientific world there is consensus that the natural origin of SARS-CoV-2. His think tank the bats, and the ability to infect people, the virus is likely acquired through animals-intermediation (snakes or pangolin).
An alternative point of view in an interview with “Radio Liberty” expressed the Czech virologist Sonya Pitch. She believes unnatural regulatory region of the virus, which got her thinking about changing his genetic code is man.
A similar opinion on 17 April expressed the French virologist who won the Nobel prize in 2008 Luc Montagnier. In his opinion, the structure of the virus shows that it is the development of molecular biologists in SARS-CoV-2 supposedly have traces of HIV and malaria. He suggested that the new coronavirus could be synthesized during the search for an HIV vaccine.
In the office of the President of France on 18 April said that the point of view of the scientist is not supported by the evidence. “There is no evidence that the information disseminated in the US press, about the connection between the origin COVID-19 and the P4 laboratory in Wuhan”, – quotes the official Elysee Palace Chinese channel CGTN.
