    The diplomatic war between Beijing and Washington has no doubt been declared. In recent hours, the Middle Kingdom castigated US support for Taiwan’s entry into the UN, insisting that Taiwan is “an inalienable part of China”.

    But also and especially since the declarations of Donald Trump on Friday May 1 about the origin of the Coronavirus, several Chinese officials have expressed their dismay. The US President claims that he has seen evidence that the virus came from a Chinese laboratory, annoying the Chinese ambassador to France, Lu Shaye who did not mince his words in an interview with regional daily le Parisien.

    “If he has evidence, let him show it,” Shaye said. “But let him stop fooling people with bleach. With an unfounded accusation, how could we speak of punishment?” he continued. Lu Shaye also directed his comments at the United States. “Rather, the international community must take responsibility for the United States which caused the spread of the virus worldwide. Eventually, with more than a million confirmed cases, the country headed by Donald Trump alone totals a number of cases greater than the total of cases recorded from the second to the seventh most affected countries in the world,” he warned.

    Based on statistics from Imperial College London, Lu Shaye also estimated that the Americans “exported 16 000 cases abroad”.

    The Chinese ambassador once again maintained that the virus has a “natural” origin. “The laboratory applies security procedures, there is no question of a virus leakage, and it has neither the will nor the capacity to create this kind of Coronavirus,” he said, referring to the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

    In 2015, American researchers and Chinese Wuhan Institute of Virology researchers collaborated to transform an animal coronavirus into one that can attack humans. Scientists from prestigious American universities and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) worked directly with the two coauthor researchers from Wuhan Institute of Virology, Xing-Yi Ge and Zhengli-Li Shi.

    Funding was provided by both the Chinese and US governments. The team succeeded in modifying a bat Coronavirus to make it capable of infecting humans.

    The research was published in December 2015 in the prestigious British journal, Nature Medicine (volume 21, pages1508–1513). The paper by Vineet D. Menachery et al., “A SARS-like cluster of circulating bat coronaviruses shows potential for human emergence” is available on-line.

    Footnotes to the scientific paper disclose that the research was funded by both the Chinese and US Governments, including grants from the NIH’s National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Disease.

    Scientists have been shuttling to and from various BSL-4 labs of nations that engage in Biological Warfare research. The US, China, UK, Russia, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, India have such facilities.

    It should also be noted that the two suppositions of laboratory design and wildlife origins may not be mutually exclusive.
