Remember the coronavirus Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (Sars), in 2002 which was originated from China, killed 774 people?? The same or more advanced virus originated from China but causing more deaths than the previous one. Is it manmade or just transferred from animal to human as China’s government said. It looks suspicious, isn’t it? How this virus spread so fast globally?? Where did it start??
Where Did It Start:
It all started with the city of Wuhan. Wuhan has a large seafood market where wild animals, birds, snakes are traded. Coronavirus may transfer from animals to humans. And the first infected was one of the stallholders from the market. Initially, it looked like the Covid-19 virus might be transferred due to snakes. Because it was similar to the virus seen in snakes. But, the scientist said the real source of the virus is still unknown!!
Coronavirus is nothing but a large group of viruses that cause respiratory problems. The main symptom of the virus ranges from common colds to much more serious infections.
China itself severely suffered from the Covid-19 virus which leads to 3253 deaths and over 75000 cases so far. Though things are coming to normal in China and there is no single case found in China but the rest of the word is now suffering. This virus is spreading and almost 150 countries are being affected.
Now, Italy has the highest number of death of almost 4000 and around 40000 cases which is more than China!! Because of this, it is now on lockdown mode.
Iran is also seeing a sudden surge in infected cases. It has seen almost 1300 deaths and 18000 cases. Apart from these countries, the US is also under lockdown mode. The country has seen almost 14000 cases and 200 death so far.
The entire Europe is under severe condition. The best thing is that the situation in the African and North American countries is in control! And Asian countries are still in the first stage. But, the situation could be worse because the healthcare system is weaker than in European countries.
But, is it a manmade virus? Looks like to me..and more importantly, the American news agency also suspected that. Because China has only a Level 4 microbiology lab that is equipped to handle deadly coronaviruses, called the National Biosafety Laboratory, which is part of the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Officially Chinese leader Xi Jinping didn’t say a word about this but the very next day Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology released a note saying, “Instructions on strengthening biosecurity management in microbiology labs that handle advanced viruses like the novel coronavirus.”
In all of China, only one microbiology lab is present that handles advance viruses. And that one is Wuhan!!
Also, Wuhan Institute of Virology is one of the two bioweapons research labs in China.
According to PLA Daily, in 2003 due to the SARS outbreak, Gen Chen has been researching coronaviruses. Deadly virus like SARS has been escaped twice from the lab while doing experiments.
Another question arose, did this virus deliberately spread by PLA Gen Chen?? It can be… Wuhan is one of the metro cities of China. Almost 300, the world’s top companies are present in this city like Microsoft, German-based software company SAP and French car manufacturer Groupe PSA. Lots of foreign citizens are working there. So, the virus can spread across the world easily if these foreign employees are infected. As you see, lots of people are returning to their motherland after the COVID-19 outbreak. And some of them are infected. As a result, currently, over 150 countries are affected due to this virus.
SARS, Anthrax, Ebola, COVID-19 all are man-made viruses. But, some will ask why are you saying something controversial?? As this is the 21st century, modern wars are not only won by weapons but also by the use of biological weapons and cyber warfare. If you want to destroy another country, the best way is to slow down its economy. The virus can be used as a chemical weapon against enemy nation and it will destroy the nation into pieces.
But, one thing remains still unanswered. Did this COVID-19 virus escape from the lab or Gen Chen deliberately unbox the virus ?? We may know the answer in the future or may not!! But, nothing in our hands !! We, the common people, can do only one thing now.. stay safe, keep a safe distance and wash your hand properly!!
