The director of the Chinese institute in Wuhan where the first case of Coronavirus arose, has made a remark.
He has said that although there were live strains of bat coronavirus in their labs, none of them matched the virus behind the pandemic.
Meaning, it had no relation to the uncanny virus that has taken the lives of more than 3.5lakh people worldwide.
The US president, Donald Trump had made a few statements wherein he had accused China of deliberately spreading the virus.
The director Wang Yanyi said in an interview, that this apparent blame-game was an utter fabrication of reality.
The bat coronavirus was apparently being studied by a team and it was focused on source tracking of SARS.
For those who don’t remember the SARS, it was the horrid virus that had spread to 26 countries and taken innocent lives worldwide.
The entire Chinese team has been reportedly researching on the bat coronavirus since 2004.
The team head said that the entire genome of COVID-19 is exceedingly similar to that of SARS but there’s a pretty obvious difference.
The Awful Condition
However, earlier this month, President Donald Trump has announced very publicly that he had absolute evidence of COVID-19 being originated from a lab in Wuhan.
The US intelligence agencies had, nonetheless, time and again stated that the virus isn’t man-made.
What’s frightening is the increasing number of patients and deaths due to the virus. Globally, more or less,4 lakh people have lost their lives.
The US has been the epicentre having more than 90,000 deaths and a staggering 1.5 million affected patients.
