COVID-19 is likely a “man-made” virus that traces its origins to a laboratory, according to a new report from researchers in the U.S. and Germany.
The study is the latest blow to the Chinese Communist Party-concocted narrative that COVID-19 developed naturally in a wet market, which has been amplified by Western scientists with deep ties to the Chinese Communist Party.
It also follows the unearthing of the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s work on bat coronaviruses, which included the Chinese Communist Party-run laboratory using U.S. taxpayer dollars to manipulate coronavirus strains to become deadlier to humans.
The Daily Mail reports:
“The coronavirus was likely made in a lab, according to the latest explosive study to shed light on the possible origins of the pandemic.
Researchers in the US and Germany studied Covid’s genome — the virus’ instruction manual — and compared it to dozens of previously detected coronaviruses.
‘Peculiar patterns’ were visible in the building blocks of the pandemic-causing virus, which they say are hallmark signs that it was manufactured. The team described it as having a ‘synthetic fingerprint’.
Study author Dr Alex Washburne, a mathematical biologist, said the lab leak theory can’t be ruled out based on the results of his controversial study.
Each test his team performed ‘decreased the odds of SARS-CoV-2 having a natural origin’, he said.
However, Dr Washburne noted his team don’t identify which lab that was the source of the outbreak and insisted that the virus looks more ‘like an accident’ rather than a ‘bioweapon’.
Some experts called the results ‘troubling’ and claimed they offered the ‘strongest piece of evidence’ yet that the virus was man-made.
