Luc Montagnier, a french virologist and Nobel laureate revealed that the deadly coronavirus originated in a laboratory in China’s Wuhan.
The theory that COVID-19 was created in a Chinese lab and “leaked” out to the world has been making the rounds since its outbreak in December 2019. As United States, President Donald Trump also fired a fresh salvo when he warned China of consequences if it was “knowingly responsible” for the virus. However, China has refuted these allegations.
In an interview French virologist, Montagnier claimed that the virus, which causes the COVID-19 infection that is wreaking havoc around the world, was the result of an attempt to manufacture a vaccine against HIV in a Chinese lab. Montagnier alleged the presence of elements of HIV and germ of malaria in the genome of coronavirus is “highly suspect” and it “could not have arisen naturally”.
The French researcher also alleged an “industrial accident” to have taken place in the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory, which specialises in coronaviruses since the 2000s.
