The US intelligence community report shows that the United States is determined to go down the wrong path of political manipulation, The Chinese embassy in the United States responded in a statement.
The intelligence community’s report is based on guilt over China and only makes China a victim.
The secret report was submitted to the US president this week, who provided 90 days of intelligence services
Double attempts In order to explain the origin of the infection.
According to a summary released on Friday, intelligence may have concluded that the scientific name of the virus was not SARS-CoV-2.
As a biological weapon, And was
Probably Not designed
But they are divided between the hypothesis of the first case which occurred as a result of natural exposure of the affected animal or a laboratory accident.
Important information about the origin of the epidemic is in China, but from the beginning, government officials in China have done everything to prevent international investigators and global public health actors from accessing it.
In detail, the evaluation of the four intelligence systems and the National Intelligence Council
Low level of confidence The animal thesis is very high
They are especially reliant on justifying their judgment
Multiple vectors for an animal show Existing sources, as well as China’s ignorance before the virus appeared.
The U.S. intelligence community says Chinese officials had no initial knowledge of the virus before the outbreak beganWas it really written in the summary of the report?
However, another intelligence agency believes
A moderate optimism The thesis for laboratory leakage should be favorable
Tests, animal manipulations or samples from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Experts here pay more
Intrinsic risk Corona virus research actually conducted in Wuhan. It is hypothesized that this work may have led to an accidental infection of an employee.
Analysts of three companies Do not decide between one or the other of the hypotheses.
Intelligence considers themselves
Could not give a definitive explanation yet The reason for the absence of Govit-19
New information Presented by China, they write.
To date, China has rejected calls for this disclosure and withheld information, and the number of epidemics continues to rise.
Our efforts to understand the origin of this epidemic will not diminish, He promised.
A team of international experts sent by the WHO visited Wuhan in January 2021 for a study
The first phase Regarding the origin of the virus. But their report, co-authored with Chinese experts, was widely criticized.
Intermediate animal Have yet to be proven
The study estimated that the transmission of the virus from the bat to humans via an intermediate animal was the most likely scenario. She judged
Very impossible The virus came from a laboratory.
In mid-August, China rejected a WHO call for a new investigation into its territory.
Determining how the virus, which has killed more than 4.47 million people worldwide, spreads to humans is considered important in an effort to prevent further infection.
The hypothesis of a laboratory leak was largely rejected by the scientific community at the onset of the epidemic. But the famous intermediate animal remains undiscovered, and this study came into effect in the American public debate in the spring. In mid-May, about fifteen experts published an article in the prestigious magazine Science Call for serious consideration.
Gradually, however, the scientific community seems to be receding. Last week, in the same magazine, six scientists published an article entitled:
Animal origin of SARS-CoV-2.
In another scientific publication, Go21 eminent researchers concluded:
There is currently no evidence that SARS-CoV-2 originated from a laboratory.
