The report of the WHO-China Joint Mission on Coronavirus Disease on the results of investigation in Wuhan was not a “sensation,” but raises many questions, Igor Nikulin, microbiologist and former member of the UN Commission for Biological Weapons, wrote in an article for Rossa Primavera News Agency.
WHO experts who visited the Chinese city could not draw a definitive conclusion about the origin of SARS-CoV-2, but rejected the laboratory version of the origin of the new coronavirus.
“There is a feeling that … something is not being said on this issue,” Nikulin notes.
According to the expert, the hypothesis of natural origin of COVID-19 is actually much bolder – SARS-CoV-2 is too different even from other SARS and MERS coronaviruses, it “has other target cells.”
“The COVID-19 virus has a fundamentally new, different way of infiltrating into the human body from other coronaviruses,” the microbiologist reports.
Nikulin notes that the authors of the report “remain silent” about the fact that the virus “has acquired a new, uncharacteristic way of infiltrating into the human living cell.”
“Maybe because they know: there was no such event in nature,” Nikulin said.
As Rossa Primavera News Agency informed, the WHO published a report on March 30 on the results of an investigation in Wuhan in China where, according to the generally accepted version, the spread of the coronavirus came from.
The WHO experts found no source of infection with the new coronavirus, “patient zero” and “intermediate host” among animals from which the virus could be transmitted to humans, but considered it unlikely that the virus was created in a laboratory.
