Trace of a novel coronavirus pandemic that has spread from China
Didier Pitte, chef from the Infectious Disease Prevention and Control Service at the Geneva University Hospital, said there was no evidence of SARS-CoV-2 virus leaking from a laboratory from Wuhan, China, reports RIA Novosti.
“ In reality, we have no evidence that this virus or any others were created in the lab. This has been discussed a lot. Mainly because it all happened in China. But they always forget to say that the first destructive bacteria to escape the lab made it to the United States. And it happened in a laboratory with an extremely high level of security ',' ' he noted.
The scientist pointed out that the question of the possibility of a Wuhan lab leak “ is more political. & # 39; & # 39;
