China: no evidence that coronavirus originated in lab


According to China, there is no evidence that the coronavirus originated in a laboratory. That has been confirmed by the World Health Organization, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Beijing reports.

Right-wing American channel Fox News claimed, based on unknown sources, that the global pandemic started in a lab in the Chinese city of Wuhan. A bat is said to have infected an employee of a lab, who would then have infected others.

China would not have wanted to use the coronavirus as a biological weapon, but it wanted to demonstrate that it was better at identifying and fighting viruses than the United States, according to Fox News. Fox News does not provide any evidence for this. That channel has close ties to President Donald Trump and his supporters. From that angle, China has long been blamed for the corona crisis. For example, Trump himself spoke of the ‘Chinese virus’ for a while.
