Scientists in Britain have announced evidence of laboratory origin of coronavirus

British professor Angus Dalglish and Norwegian virologist Birger Sorensen said they have “proof” of the artificial origin of the coronavirus infection.

According to the Daily Mail, the study says that Chinese scientists developed SARS-Cov-2 in a Wuhan laboratory, after which they tried to “cover their tracks” in such a way that all the evidence would indicate the natural origin of the virus.

Scientists, after analyzing the experiments that were carried out by specialists in Wuhan between 2002 and 2019, came to the conclusion that Chinese experts, including in cooperation with American universities, allegedly developed tools for creating SARS-Cov-2.

According to Dalglish and Sorensen, Wuhan scientists were trying to make the naturally occurring virus more infectious so that it multiplies quickly in human cells, which was necessary to study the potential impact of the coronavirus on humans. British professor and Norwegian virologist believe that Chinese experts took the “basis” of the coronavirus from cave bats, and then, as it were, “attached” a new “spike” to it, turning the virus into the infectious and deadly SARS-Cov-2.

The Norwegian virologist points to a series of four amino acids in the coronavirus, and states that all amino acids are positively charged, which allows the virus to cling tightly to negatively charged parts of human cells.

“Like magnets, positively charged amino acids repel each other, which is why naturally occurring viruses rarely even have chains of three. And four amino acids in a row is extremely unlikely, ”he said.

We will remind, earlier, the World Health Organization released the report of an international group of experts on a visit to the city of Wuhan to identify the origin of the new coronavirus infection. The report called the laboratory origin of the virus “extremely unlikely.” The WHO also stated that the infection was most likely transmitted to humans from bats through another animal.
