Chinese researchers published a paper stating they believe that the Coronavirus originated at one of the two virus research institutes in Wuhan, China.
Reports that coronavirus had been traced to bats, most likely the kind that could be found in wet markets like the one in Wuhan, is becoming less believable. A new report from Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao of the South China University of Technology suggests that the pathogen is more the result of a leak from a lab.
Note: The REAL conspiracy theory is that bats – developed a completely new virus – left their deep caves high on a mountain – flew 900 km to a crowded and polluted city – then peed on a bunch of people – who just happened to be right next to China’s only Level 4 bioweapons lab.
The report notes that COVID-19 could be traced to the intermediate horseshoe bat — a bat that the report confirmed was not available at the Wuhan wet market and did not live locally. Native populations were no closer than 600 miles away from the first known cases, making a natural transmission from bat to human appear less likely. From the report:
The only place those particular bats existed locally was inside a research facility, which was just several hundred yards from the Wuhan wet market. The report also notes that after surgeries, some of the bio-waste ended up in some of the trash only a few meters from the wet market:
The report concluded that the coronavirus pandemic had likely been the result of a leak from the lab: “The killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.”
