The Wuhan Institute of Virology kept live bats in cages. He reveals it Sky News Australia on the basis of an unpublished video, which she has come into possession, shot inside the structure. Images that would refute the version of the WHO that had branded the hypothesis as “conspiracy”.
Sky News Australia points out that this is the official video – in which you see employees feeding bats – of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, shot on the occasion of the launch of the biosecurity laboratory in May 2017. The 10-minute video, entitled “The team of Wuhan P4 laboratory construction and research of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences “, celebrates the completion of the facility and features interviews with its leading scientists from the Level 4 laboratory, the highest in safety ever achieved in China, thanks to the support of France. There is talk of “maximum security” precautions in place in the event of an “accident” and “intense clashes” with the Paris government during its construction.
“New investigation into the virus”, a challenge to Beijing from the G7

The WHO version
The WHO report on the origin of the pandemic, recalls theAnsa, did not mention the presence of bats at the Institute of the city where Covid-19 was first recorded, while the possibility of hosting animals was mentioned in the attachments. “The room in facility P4 can handle a variety of species, including primate work with SARS-CoV-2,” it reads.

The zoologist Peter Daszak, who was part of the WHO mission in Wuhan, said it was a conspiracy to suggest that the bats were bred at the Institute of Virology. In a tweet in December 2020 he wrote that “no bats have been sent to the Wuhan laboratory for genetic analysis of the viruses collected in the field: we collect samples of bats, we send them to the laboratory. WE RELEASE the bats where we catch them!”.

This month, Daszak appeared to retract, admitting the Institute may have harbored bats and never asked for it. Daszak was harshly criticized for his close relationship with Shi Zhengli, the Institute’s “Bat Woman”, known for collecting over 15,000 samples of the bat virus.

Shi Zhengli si difende
And Shi Zhengli himself denied once again that the Wuhan Institute of Virology could be at the origin of the Covid-19 pandemic due to a “leak” of the virus. “How can I offer evidence of something for which there is no evidence?” The Chinese scientist said in a series of emailed responses to the New York Times. “I don’t know how the world got to this, constantly pouring mud on an innocent scientist,” he added.

The American investigation
In May, US President Joe Biden ordered US intelligence agencies to investigate the origin of the pandemic, including the laboratory leak theory, requesting a report in 90 days. The theory in question had previously been launched by Donald Trump, but was widely dismissed as “conspiracy”. However, it has recently gained ground after reports that three Institute researchers fell ill in 2019 after visiting a bat cave in Yunnan province.

According to New York Times, in 2017 Shi and his lab colleagues published research on an experiment in which they created “new hybrid bat coronaviruses by mixing and matching parts of existing ones, including at least one that was nearly transmissible to humans, in order to study the their ability to infect and replicate in human cells “.

To the American newspaper, Shi said his experiments did not want to make a virus more dangerous, but aimed to understand how the virus could pass from one species to another. “My laboratory has never conducted or collaborated in conducting experiments that improve the virulence of viruses,” he assured.
