In the context of China's keenness to distance itself from any connection with this pandemic that has harmed the world, a group of scientists from China said that the origin of the Corona virus can only be of natural origin, and this virus cannot appear in the laboratory, according to what was reported by Science China magazine. Life Sciences.
The article published in the magazine stated that more than 20 Chinese scientists, as well as a British researcher working in China, conducted a scientific study and concluded that the coronavirus is of natural origin, and was not synthetic.
As evidence to prove this, these researchers used the theory of evolution and related ideas.
The scientists overlooked the statements of Chinese scientists working in the Wuhan laboratory that the virus appeared inside the laboratory, and they were forced to remain silent about this under pressure from higher parties in the country.
Scientists also overlooked the beginning of the emergence of the Corona virus at the end of 2019 for the first time in China, to spread to the whole world at the beginning of spring 2020.
The scientists noted that SARS-CoV-2 has adapted very well to humans compared to the 2003 SARS-CoV sample.
The group stressed that this level of adaptability appears to have crystallized and developed over a long period.
Scientists believe that before the outbreak of the Covid-19 epidemic, the virus was subjected to some form of evolution in humans, which led to it obtaining this degree of adaptability, and it is still a mystery how exactly this happened, but the SARS-CoV-2 virus was not able to Evolution in an animal market in a big city, and its evolution in a lab seems less likely.
As the Associated Press reported, "WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has not ruled out the possibility of a synthetic origin for the coronavirus."
