The mystery of the Chinese researcher murdered in the US

The assassination of a Chinese professor from the American university of Pittsburgh who was shot dead several times has caused a global stir. The scientist was close to making "very significant discoveries" about the Coronavirus which has triggered the global pandemic.

    And although investigators maintain that they cannot link the motive for the murder to advanced scientific research on such a sensitive subject, a veil of mystery is already wrapped around the case under investigation.

    Bing Liu, 37, and another man, Hao Gu, 46, also from Pittsburgh, were both found dead on the same day, Saturday 2 May, the latter not far from the crime scene. After firing several gun shots at the researcher who was on the patio of his home, the latter allegedly committed suicide in his car. Or so the official story goes.

    According to the investigators it was not a robbery, on the contrary, the two men knew each other, and the murderer allegedly acted while the victim’s wife was away from home. According to the Pittsburgh police, the “Chinese track” should be excluded: that is, a murder linked to the Asian origins of man; but at the same time one cannot but consider the possible implication of his research on SARS-CoV-2.

    Sources inside the US university where the victim had been working for six years said: “Bing was on the verge of making very significant discoveries to understand the cellular mechanisms that underlie SARS-CoV-2 infection and the cellular bases of the following complications.”

    His colleagues from the Pitt School of Medicine’s Department of Computational Biology and Systems described him as an “exceptional researcher and mentor,” stating that they will commit to “paying homage to his scientific excellence” by completing the research he was carrying out with dedication.

    Bing Liu, originally from China, had a degree and a PhD in computer science from the National University of Singapore and then settled in the United States, and continued his academic career first in the prestigious Carnegie Mellon University, where he collaborated with Professor Edmund Clarke, and then to the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

    Also at Pitt, the Italian researchers Andrea Gambotto and Louis Falo are currently engaged in the coordination of a group of researchers who have been working tirelessly to create an effective vaccine to stop the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

    According to the Italian scientist, the vaccine – a sort of patch that is applied to the skin of guinea pigs and which could be the first to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration – has passed the animal testing phase, producing the amount of specific antibodies sufficient to neutralize the virus.

    This is of course a very coveted goal at this moment of scientific competition that sees a real race to create a vaccine that will “save the world”. At stake, in fact, is not only the safeguarding of humanity, but also huge economic and political interests.

    For this reason, and for the “very significant discoveries” obtained by the victim regarding the mysterious virus, a link is being sought by public opinion between his research on Covid-19 and this brutal execution.

    A promising young researcher has lost his life. He leaves a wife and his parents, who still live in China.

    The official Chinese spokesman Zhao Lijian, formally accused the US of bringing Coronavirus to China. The hypothesis of biological warfare behind the global pandemic was raised by Russian experts some weeks ago.

    Sputnik radio in February drew a parallel between the 19th-century opium wars and Britain suggesting that together with “international organisations” they were seeking to control Chinese internal affairs, just as the British empire forced China to open its markets and cede territory at gunpoint.
