Is China Covering Up Origins of Coronavirus? Removes Photos of Scientists Working With Bats From Wuhan Institute
In another bid to cover up suspicions of the Chinese connection and the origins of the coronavirus, the Wuhan’s Institute of Virology has removed photographs of scientists working in its laboratories. Photographs and material related to US diplomats have also been edited or removed. Among the material edited is a page with pictures of staff entering caves to take swabs from bats carrying coronaviruses. Following the visits by US diplomats, the state department in the US was warned about the risks of the bat experiments.
1President trump is repeated questioning China about the coronavirus
Donald Trump is continuously questioning the reason why Beijing has systematically deleted the pictures of the slacking standards of Chinese laboratories at the center of International suspicion over Covid-19 from their website and blames China for their potential role of its outbreak.
2Photos and evidence of scientists in bat caves have been edited or removed
Wuhan’s Institute of Virology have removed photos and evidences of scientists who have worked in those laboratories and even edited the references of US diplomats who questioned the laboratory’s work on bats.
On Thursday, US President Donald Trump had announced that he had received Intelligence about the origins of this global crisis from the institute in Wuhan. On Sunday, the British cabinet ministers have received classified briefings which may actually be leaked information of the institution.
Downing street did not focus on President Trump’s remark but “questions on the origin and spread of this virus still needed to be answered” stated a spokesman of Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
3The edited material involved several pictures of the bat projects
The material which had been edited contained pages of the institute’s website where there are pictures of staff entering bat caves to take swabs of Coronavirus carried by bats and even these scientist wore minimal protective equipment. The references of a visit to the institute by Rick Switzer’s, a science and technology expert from the U.S embassy in Beijing, had also been removed.
4Intelligence information about the experiments reached Washington following Sprizer’s visits
Cables from the embassy were sent to the U.S state department warning about the risks of the experiments on bats after Mr. Switzer’s visit. In one article, after having some interaction with scientists from WIV laboratory, the diplomats from US had noted a serious shortage of trained technicians and investigators for operating this high containment laboratory.
