New Photos from Wuhan Lab Show Broken Seals on Storage for 1,500 Virus Strains
The Daily Mail reported on a controversial breach on the door of one of the refrigerators that used to hold 1,500 different strains of virus at Wuhan’s Institute of Virology.
One of the strains the refrigerators held was the devastating Wuhan Virus, which has ripped through the world with a calamitous effect.
The conventional wisdom is that the pandemic was brought about due to a catastrophic leak which Beijing has been covering up.
The pictures of this lab were first released by the state-owned China Daily newspaper in 2018. They were published on Twitter last month, before being deleted. One comment said: “I have seen better seals on my refrigerator in my kitchen.”
According to a Mail report, Ministers now believe that the pandemic could have been sparked as a result of a leak.
Last week, the same newspaper revealed that the institute conducted Wuhan virus experiments on bats captured over 1,000 miles away in Yunnan. They were able to do so with a $3.7 million grant from the U.S. government.
The revelations that the Mail put forward soon made their way to the American press. Last week, President Donald Trump was asked about the leak theory. The President responded: “We are doing a very thorough examination of this horrible situation.”
On April 17, 2020, Trump pledged to cut U.S. funding to the Wuhan institute.
In the meantime, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has pressed Beijing to “‘come clean” about the nature of Wuhan virus leak. He stated: “There is still lots to learn.The US government is working diligently to figure it out.”
He also stated that one of the best ways that China could be cooperative in this situation would be to “let the world in and let the world’s scientists know exactly how this came to be, exactly how this virus began to spread.”
No matter how we slice it, China is a bad actor.
There is no reason to get into a belligerent conflict with them.
Nevertheless, America needs to rethink its trade and immigration policies with it.
Maintaining the status quo is not viable for America’s economic and national security.
