A scientist who worked closely with the Wuhan lab has claimed that the Covid-19 virus was genetically engineered, and leaked from the lab, reports The Sun.
According to the news report, Dr Andrew Huff, an epidemiologist and former vice president of EcoHealth Alliance, accuses authorities of a cover-up and points the finger squarely at the US for funding China’s gain-of-function experiments at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, calling the entire saga the "biggest US intelligence failure since 9/11".
Per The Sun, Both Chinaand the lab have furiously denied any allegations - butevidence of a lab leakhas been piling up over the last two years as scientists, researchers and governments hunt for answers andstep forward with evidence. Dozens of experts have suggested Covid could have escaped from the Wuhan lab through an infected researcher, improper disposal of waste, or potential breaches in the security at the site.
Even the head of the World Health Organisation reportedly believes Covid didleak from the lab after a "catastrophic accident".
In his new book -The Truth About Wuhan- whistleblower Dr Huff claims the pandemic was the result of the US government's funding of dangerous genetic engineering of coronaviruses in China.
"EcoHealth Alliance and foreign laboratories did not have the adequate control measures in place for ensuring proper biosafety, biosecurity, and risk management, ultimately resulting in the lab leak at the Wuhan Institute of Virology," he said in his book, an exclusive pre-release copy of which was provided to The Sun Online.[The Sun]
