From intelligence Alliance Five Eyes, which includes Australia, Canada, New Zealand, USA and UK, there is no evidence that the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 had spread as a result of leakage from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, said on may 4, the British newspaper The Guardian , citing intelligence sources.
There’s no indication that the leak from the laboratory could cause a pandemic, said the sources.
According to The Guardian, the report of the Australian tabloid Daily Telegraph, about the concealment data about China the coronavirus was not based on the report of Five Eyes.
The Daily Telegraph is owned by the Australian and American media Mogul Rupert Murdoch, in recent days, the newspaper has dedicated a lot of materials science and technology lab.
Sources The Guardian in the exploration of Australia suggest that the publications were based on publicly available facts, mostly obtained from the United States. One of interlocutors of the edition believes that “it was a tool for creating contrastive and exert pressure on China.”
In British intelligence publication said newspaper the Daily Telegraph has not used the data of Five Eyes in songwriting.
According to two sources, CNN, the Alliance of Five Eyes is inclined to the version that the coronavirus spread from the seafood market in Wuhan, and not from the lab. Probably, the person contracted the disease through “natural interaction” with the animals, said the interlocutor of the channel.
Another CNN source said that the version about the leak from the lab is considered, but there is no evidence in its favor. He added that it is likely the outbreak began from the market, but how the virus got there is unclear.
May 3 Daily Telegraph published a 15-page dossier, which, among other things, stated that the Chinese authorities learned about the possibility of transmission of coronavirus from person to person for at least a month earlier than advised by the world community. Beijing, the report says, has forbidden scientists to investigate a new disease, intimidated and persecuted those who dared to talk about it. It was also alleged that the Australian government has funded dangerous experiments with the bats, which were carried out by Chinese scholars.
On the version that leaked of the coronavirus came from the lab, insists the US government, it was declared by the President of the United States Donald trump and Secretary of state Mike Pompeo. Pompeo said there is a “tremendous amount” of evidence of this version, but did not give specific details. 30 April the US intelligence community issued a statementthat the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 was not artificially created or modified.
The world health organization called speculative statements about the leak of a coronavirus from laboratory in Wuhan. The organization noted that has not yet received from the US government “no specific data about the alleged origins of the virus”.
An outbreak of coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 began in late 2019 in Wuhan. March 11, 2020, the world health organization declared the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. The Chinese authorities believe that the virus has spread from Wuhan market animals and seafood “huanan”.
