Much talked about Covid-19, which emerged in 2019 and caused the deaths of approximately 3.5 million people worldwide. The footage, allegedly taken in 2017 at the Wuhan Virology Laboratory, shows experts studying bats being bitten by animals. Here are the images of the breaking news…
New images have been shared from Wuhan, China, known as the place where the coronavirus originated and is on the agenda of the world. While there has been talking in recent days of claims that Covid-19 is being produced in Chinese laboratories, new images of bats have attracted attention.
According to the New York Post, 2015, 2015, the New York Post reported that In the footage, allegedly taken in 2017 at the Wuhan Virology Laboratory, experts examine bats without any precautions. The team studying bats appears to be not using protective equipment, while the moments when they are bitten by animals are also captured on camera.
Footage of the team working on the bats was broadcast by Chinese state television at the time, noting the moment laboratory experts did not wear gloves masks.
In the footage, a Wuhan Institute of Virology expert shows the swelling on his hand to the cameras, explaining that the bat bit him.
After the images, which attracted a great deal of reaction at the time of publication, the laboratory director explained that this job was not as dangerous as thought and that it was very unlikely that people would be directly infected.
A recent study suggested that Covid-19 was produced in a laboratory in China. The research, conducted by British Prof. Angus Dalgleish and Norwegian scientist Dr. Birger Sorensen, claimed that Chinese scientists created the coronavirus in the laboratory and then tried to hide it with “reverse engineering” techniques to make the virus appear to have developed in bats.
Another striking claim was made in the same study. China has ‘deliberately destroyed, concealed or altered data’, while there have also been allegations that people who make statements about the virus in the country have been silenced.
In the UNITED States, former President Donald Trump’s administration has taken a tough stance on the coronavirus, calling it the ‘Chinese virus’ and repeatedly blaming Beijing for the spread of the virus.
“Everything was clear to me from the beginning, but as always, I was criticized a lot,” Donald Trump said in a written statement after the latest allegations. Now everyone says, ‘He was right.’ Thank you,” he said.
Trump once again blamed China for the source of the virus.
